¿No os pasa a veces que estáis cansados de consumir (artículos, libros, software, series, arte, lo que sea) sin crear?

@fdavidcl Useful because so few people provide Alt Text when uploading, which users can do in the Advanced Settings when posting a new photo.

But also creepy because Facebook.

Instagram runs all your photos through detection algorithms to provide alternative descriptions for screen readers... useful or creepy?

You guys seem like the right people to ask this kind of questions:

In the hypothetical scenario where I decided to grow a bonsai, where should I start?

I'm using this 'drive' CLI for Google Drive and it works in the style of git and it's great (as great as using Drive can be) github.com/odeke-em/drive

Emacs never goes too far. It had never ocurred to me that I could use org-babel to manage my dotfiles.

@fdavidcl I can so relate to this. We got rid of pop-up windows using blockers, but now every site has dozens of gimmicks that need to be clicked away.

This is why smartphone screens are getting so big, right? To fit more of those popups

"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.
