Back in April US topped the chart with 39k new #covid19 cases in a day. Today? Over 47k already. Smashing it. Breaking the record while it's supposedly 'safe' to reopen after quarantine.

Reminder that Free Software IS COMMUNISM and The Bush family is IN ON IT! Remember, the G in GNU is silent, it is actually pronounced NEW. Listen to this speech by Herbert Walker Bush talking about the GNU Operating System all the way back in 1990:
(..) Our fifth objective: A New World Order can emerge, a new era, freer (..), stronger (..) and more secure (..).

Just want to give a shout-out to Audacity, which as far as I'm concerned is the open source creative tool that actually achieves the promise of open source creative tools. It gets significantly better every release and releases every few months, and the UI gets better and better (the key thing most open source tools don't achieve). If you tried Audacity a few years ago or more and decided it was unstable or clunky to use, download the latest version. You might be pleasantly surprised.

@xahlee i don't think it's a single thing.

It's a change in culture and expectations. Some people go to work to work, others to talk about feelings and authenticity and privilege. The two are not usually productively grouped.
