I am disinterested in disputing "the best". I am, above all, interested in what *I* like, followed by what family & friends like (eg, present company), and then most broadly but of only practical interest because it dictates availability, what "'people" like.

I must not tweet.
Twitter is the mind-killer.
Twitter is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my tweets.
I will permit them to pass over me and through me.
And when they have gone past I will turn the inner eye to see their path.
Where the tweets have gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

(Apologies to the memory of Frank Herbert.)

The fundamental freedom to fork and the ability to federate are complementary.

Forking establishes a divide, federation is the set of techniques for communication, collaboration, and navigation across divides to create a whole that is distinct from and often greater than the sum of the parts.

The Girl Scouts of Western Washington were offered $100,000 on the condition that the donation "will not be used to support transgender girls".

They sent the money back, held a fundraising campaign, and raised $300,000. #ForEVERYGirl

I should probably introduce myself. I've been using GNU/Linux for over 20 years now, since way back in the Slackware days. I've been a regular attendee of some of the US Linux conferences, and have finally gotten up the nerve to present at a few. I also do a bit of bicycle and motorcycle riding when the weather allows.

Very long article about women in computer programming. From the beginning, to why there are generally less women in IT now and why are not staying in IT nytimes.com/2019/02/13/magazin

Have you considered contributing to #OpenStreetMaps? It's like Wikipedia but for maps - a map that everybody can edit! Today, the NSW Address Import project added thousands of addresses for West Pennant Hills, Warrawee, and West Pymble.

If you know those areas, check it out and start mapping!

I'm really surprised that there apparently isn't a "not made with prison labor" symbol for products, verified by a third-party group similar to the Non-GMO Project or the Vegan Society

When Americans buy products that say "Made in the USA" they expect the money to go into supporting local, well-paying jobs, not fueling private prisons who utilize slave labor. This is the desire regardless of political alignment. People need the ability to make an informed decision

reminder: if you try to screenshot a movie purchased with itunes on a macOS or iOS device, it won't work. this is presumably to prevent you from taking 24 screenshots per second and stitching them back together into the full movie, because why else would you prevent people from doing this

reminder: apple surpassed $1,000,000,000,000 in value about half a year ago. that's one trillion dollars.

Maybe this is the real spark that ignites in people. It's not so much that they care about being tidy, it's that they are sick of performative passion, but instead seek permission to pursue joy.
