I don't do this often, but a friend of mine in Amsterdam is desperately looking for a job as a developer. 11 years of experience in mobile tech (iOS, Xamarin) and has been project manager and unit manager. She's got a work permit and is one of the best devs I know. RT+DM.
if there's one person I recommend is her, and my opinion is that she's being silently discriminated for being a woman. Please contact me via DM if you're looking for the best hire you've seen in a long time.
venezuela, nation-wide blackout, long post Show more
at 5pm on thursday, everything went dark. we didn't care much for it cause we're kinda use to it. it's usually just for a few minutes or hours. we didn't know how bad it was. by saturday morning people were desperate
no water, no electricity, no phone calls, no internet, no food
the electric company released a statement saying that all was caused by a lack of proper maintenance of the plant, they warned this was gonna happened but no one listened. the government, as always, blame their "enemies". it was an attack they said
everything went back to kinda normal this normal but most cellphones still have no signal, including mine. most businesses are still closed and some were looted during the weekend. I heard that over 80 people died in hospitals including newborns
last night I went out to protest and we were received by the guards and their pigs with rubber bullets and tear gas
I showed up for work just so I could get online and gather some info, I'll share what I can find
I'm ok, but damn, this was one rough weekend
for those wondering how to establish trade relations with crows:
- feed crows food A regularly
- when crows decide to bring you gifts, feed them food B
- when crows bring you different categories of gifts, feed them a food-per-category, ex: food C for jewelry, food D for paper money, etc
- crows will recognize these exchange patterns and opt to bring you things in order to acquire desired treats
good luck! 🐦

Hot take regarding the Web and decentralization Show more
Take it like this: using browser-based / Web-based decentralization techniques is like saying you're free from the effects of capitalism but use capitalist-backed funds to live your life.
ISSA LIE MY GUY
@ella_kane I have one like that running on devuan, its ok for many things.
Some mailing list I am part of, have as policy to ask people to register with non gmail accounts, I think this is also a possibility, and no this is not segregation, its enforcing a protection policy, people can, really.
+1 I'd like to find this type of resource, build knowledge. A recent experience was also hugely disrespectful, half my speaking time screwed because projector was not working. When I answered question on the time limit, accused of being violent, and turning feminist arguments to me as if they were weapons, terrible experience. Conferences should be about people joining get informed of each other's progresses and get organised, in this prospect hosting speakers with care is crucial.
@vanecx @Olm_e @ps yep I get what you say, its probably because to me social is face to face, not behind a computer, I never had facebook, not even tweeter account, I thought it was because I hate corporations, but now I realise that the idea of social behind a computer is toxic per se. I feel that the time I spend typing needs to be about infomation and organisation, the social time is out of keyboard for me.
@Olm_e @ps Really my feeling right now is that this thing takes to much time out from me, its like a shower of info that immediatly goes to the drain leaving space for the next round.
As times to come promise to be difficult, if I use digital and online tools, they need to help me structure information and get organize. If its not the case I prefer spending my time with people I love.
Mastodon to me is draining.
@hirojin @Wolf480pl @feld @Shamar It's just my perspective, probably related to my anti-capitalism. I try to imagine a world with "human scale" software built for a society of free individuals who need to be able run/study/modify/share the whole system. I dislike programmer armies and huge surveillance&control-oriented computing systems.

Le procès du militant poursuivi débute demain.
Je viens d'assister à une conversation ou une infirmière explique a une personne sans argent et avec la CMU que non tout n'est pas remboursé et que si elle paye pas, elle pourra pas faire les examens dont elle a besoin. La violence du truc, ou tu te rends compte que tu peux même pas faire les examens prescrits par le médecin si t'as pas d'argent
