Discussion hier avec le prof de clarinette. Nous sommes tous les deux des asociaux qui avons appris qu'il est de bon ton de parler vacances, donc on s'exécute, sans enthousiasme.
Moi :
- Et tu vas faire quoi pendant ces vacances ? Les précédentes tu as été très occupé : le déménagement, le mariage... Encore de beaux projets ?
- ben il y'a une suite logique. (sourire béat)
- certes, mais ça ne va pas t'occuper toutes les vacances !
Puis j'ai réalisé ce que je venais de dire. 😳

Ah good, an OS update! This must be either a patch of that latest vulnerability or a successful exploitation of it to distribute malicious OS updates.

A lot of people are missing the point of the twitter boycott. Ok heres how twitter works, they sell your data to advertisers for money, any interactions, good or bad are data they can sell.

All that harassment women get? That makes them money. All the call outs, all the toxic shit, all the fights with bad people? Makes them money.

They have a vested interest in creating engagement and nothing does that better than anger. They keep the bad people around because they know you will fight them. Thats data, they can sell that and then market to people just like you.

While they market to the people who want to abuse you too.

*not using twitter* is literally the only way to hurt them.

the "free" in free software stands for freedom to eat pineapple pizza

Qui suis-je ?

J'ai activement participé à la mise en place de l'Open Bar Microsoft / Défense,

En 2016, alors en charge de la "Cybedéfense" française, j'affirmais tranquillou face caméra que oui certes il peut y avoir des "black doors"(sic) dans les logiciels Microsoft mais qu'en fait c'est un débat dépassé et que « je m'en fous ».

Je viens d'être nommé DSI du ministère de l'Armée.

Je suis ? Je suis ??

what does accessibility in programming mean for you?

i've been staring at this for a solid 10 seconds trying to figure out what's wrong

ombies go “rains! RAINS!”
they just like rains.

In the mid-1990s, you could find yourself explaining what the Internet was for to people who were seeing it for the first time. “You can download all the latest shareware from Apogee” was unconvincing for adults, so I showed them the website of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, which was probably better than it is now.

I'm queer and tired, retoot if you're also queer and tired

"Tech culture prefers to solve harder, more abstract problems that haven’t been sullied by contact with reality. So they worry about how to give Mars an earth-like climate, rather than how to give Earth an earth-like climate. They debate how to make a morally benevolent God-like AI, rather than figuring out how to put ethical guard rails around the more pedestrian AI they are introducing into every area of people’s lives."
