L’organisation est une stratégie d’alliances, elle n’engage pas seulement des humains.

Par ailleurs, tandis que la plupart des ontologies qui accordent une place au non-humain ne saisissent pas les politiques humaines qui les dominent, certaines espèces spécifiques, telle le virus – historiquement en raison de son omniprésence, de la difficulté de le saisir et d’en prendre le contrôle – tendent à devenir un point nodal d’articulation des discours et des politiques.

If you come to me with criticism, you're very welcome, because I love constructive criticism and interference.

But please, ensure before hitting "TOOT!" that your criticism actually applies to my arguments, and avoid trying to essentialize my position or attack my integrity.

Thank you.

@CharredStencil Yes, here "permissive" means "submissive to market appropriation". Choosing a so-called permissive license is allowing corporations to restrict further cooperation : granting people the right to restrict your freedom is not permissive, it's masochistic.

On the other hand so-called "restrictive" licenses only restrict other people from restricting your freedom.

We should revolt against the inversion of meaning so prominent in contemporary propaganda. Orwell warned us.

How can I use formatbib=minwo when using \usepackage[authordate,backend=biber]{biblatex-chicago}

Can't figure it out, can't find an example... Thank you!

En France à partir de vendredi, il sera interdit de sortir les mains de ses poches en public jusqu'au 6 janvier. Le gouvernement est d'ores et déjà en train de négocier avec des entreprises nationales la distribution de pince-nez à lecture rétinienne pour assurer la continuité des paiements sans contact.

Des fuites de couloirs à l'AN présagent également que les toilettes publiques pourraient être fermées. Si vous passez par l'Élysée, n'hésitez pas à utiliser leurs chiottes.

products usually suck. sucks so much you cannot detach from it.

OK people, this is it.

@sl007 keeps talking about a group of 30 people who have been working together for the past 5 years, and have left the SocialHub.

I'm asking these 30 people to step up and endorse what Sebi says, denounce it, or otherwise chime in and take their responsibilities as consenting adults & help their friend

I find it increasingly hard to work in this field w/ people complaining that they're being harrassed by a core member & noone seems to care.

I can understand why still has so much money left to distribute: unless you let the watch your every steps, you keep filling CAPTCHAs and never reach the moment you can actually apply.

I even wonder how much of DAPSI website is actually -compliant. I want to submit a "Secure and Private Hosting for EU projects with Gemini" proposal suddenly.

Donc, tu es une asso, tu files des thunes à une boîte privée pour utiliser leur logiciel propriétaire, comme préalable à la réception d'un financement public...

ou bien ?

Support ABC Belarus! 

Support anarchist and antifascist prisoners in Belarus.

The Anarchist Black Cross is defending political prisoners. If you can, help them.

"After protests against dictator Lukashenko amount of political prisoners, among them anarchists and antifascists increased dramatically. We collect money to support those prisoners and their families to resist oppression of authoritarianism."

Are you on the #SocialHub? 

Could you please check what free software project you know and love is missing from the category and invite their developers?

Thank you for sharing awesomeness!

¿ Noticias de Colombia ? 

¿ Cuales son las fuentes de noticias imprescindibles para entender lo que esta pasando en Cali y otras partes del país ?

No quiero escuchar de los tipos que llaman a no salir de casa o de la prensa nacional o internacional diciendo que la gente es violenta, por favor.

The Center for Cultivation of Technology has a job opening for mentorship of free software.

The announcement is in German because the job requires at least basic German.

I'm interested to follow up because we're probably going to work together. Someone with great knowledge of the free software community and good outlook on social issues (incl. gender and solidarity beyond software) would be great.

Pour avoir complètement adoré « Capital Advisory », je fais une entorse à mes habitudes et je racole.

Si vous aimez le bien écrit, L'1nconsolable a un nouvel album tout frais « Le droit au bruit ».

La collecte se termine demain en mode tout ou rien, donc si vous avez des pépettes de fin de mois, n'hésitez pas, c'est le moment de soutenir un artiste qui ne mâche pas ses mots sur la situation et qui a un talent fou...
