If you don't understand an argument for something, but still use it anyway, you are probably wrong. This is called cargo culting.

Inspired by some dude telling me git's code is bad because it uses goto a lot.

A week ago Unbox Therapy featured the Librem 13 v4 on their channel youtu.be/hVcJgCvFuWo We had no idea they were going to do the review and were so happy that both Lewis and Willy found it "Simple, Clean. The most secure experience you can have." If you haven't had a chance to watch the video yet, which is nearly on 2.4m views, we've got a summary of highlights for you puri.sm/posts/the-librem-13-re #Purism #Librem #Librem13 #PureOS #Linux #linuxLaptop

My talk today at HTW Berlin for World Usability Day 2019 just finished, and the people seemed to like it.

Slides here: naii.io/wud2019 (German)

The Ethical Design Manifesto by @indie / @aral and @laura was an essential part of it since this is my contribution to spreading the word and raising awareness :)

And one attendee literally said it was the highlight of his day.

Super grateful to have experienced that, and yes I was on a little high afterwards *yippieeee*
