"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

A great sounding call for contributions from the Engines of Difference workgroup. The deadline is in two days though!

"Otherwise Practices With/In Computing

In this call for contributions, we want to know the cusps, potentials, tunings, and boundary-making practices that critically push the extractive and the exclusionary, the connective and the networking, and the potential-inclined practices of computing."

#Chile resiste
"9 meses con trauma ocular, 9 meses con mi herramienta de trabajo dañada, 9 meses en rehabilitación, 9 meses sin visión de mi ojo izquierdo, 9 meses de lucha por sanar. En Chile manifestarse cuesta un ojo de la cara. ¿Que tanto vimos para que nos dispararan a la cara? Justicia, reparación, verdad y NO REPETICIÓN"

La fotografa chilena Nicole Kramm, quien fue alcanzada por una bala de la policia en su ojo izquierdo el 31 de diciembre de 2019 mientras caminaba junto a sus colegas.

We found an open source license that Google is against so we're changing to it: Hello AGPL!

It helps prevent corporations from taking our code and selling it as a proprietary competitor.
