I facilitated a #TalkPayIRL discussion at @DevOpsDaysDC@twitter.com. The lowest paid developer in the room just accepted a position wherein their salary is 65% higher. Thank you to the amazing #DevOps community for the support and @jpaulreed@twitter.com for the process. medium.com/@jpaulreed/talking- 1/2

Artists installed seesaws at the border wall so that kids in the U.S. and Mexico could play together. It was designed by architect Ronald Rael. ⁣

Beautiful reminder that we are connected: what happens on one side impacts the other.

scottish witch trial records 

it really was surreal to peruse scottish witch trial records and find inquisitors dutifully notating how they coerced confessions, how they interpreted healers and political agitators and neuroatypical folx alike as satanists in order to have everyone they knew captured and killed. we downplay it today, somehow, but the witch trials were a pan-european political genocide without which the modern nation-state and all its crimes, perhaps even whiteness itself, would not be possible.

I'm looking for a fairly rugged, dependable laptop running under #linux with decent hardware support.

My instinct is to go with a ThinkPad. Anyone think I'm wrong about that?

If not, which ThinkPad?

In my quest to build an #ActivityPub based simple, no-frills bulletin board / forum system, I've gone ahead and pushed up my work-in-progress #golang ActivityPub single server framework: apcore. It has no README (yet) and still has a lot left TODO.

github.com/go-fed/apcore

I hope to use it in the future to launch multiple small ActivityPub applications leveraging common serving, storing, and moderation features. But new #ActivityStreams vocabulary can be readily innovated upon.

Applications secretly running web servers on localhost is such a security antipattern. Basically turns your desktop into just another ioshit zombie.

Still have a lot of trinkets from my old hugo stuff to bring in but, it's a bit more informative and complete than it was.
