Schools and open source:

"Why, after all, proprietary software developers offer gratis copies of their nonfree programs to schools? Because they want to use the schools to implant dependence on their products, like tobacco companies distributing cigarettes to school children. They will not give gratis copies to these students once they've graduated... Once you're dependent, you're expected to pay, and future upgrades may be expensive."

@haskal brand loyalty makes us more exploitable. Its okay to have respect for a certain set of engineers but let's try to stay critical.

@tek I would guess that the answer is no a lot of the time when they answer yes also

@natecull we can trust disney to do the financially least risky thing, and passing the mantle to shuri is probably it.

How Big Oil Misled The Public Into Believing Plastic Would Be Recycled

text.npr.org/s.php?sId=8976920

TL;DR everything has a recycling triangle on it to make consumers feel better about buying plastics despite the fact that nobody has found a way to actually recycle the huge amount of plastic being disposed of through recycling bins and there was never any intent by Big Oil to actually invest in what would be their direct competition (recycled plastic rather than new plastic from petroleum products).

If you punish someone instead of offering education, you are failing to affect meaningful change.

You must recognize good faith, and engage to change perspectives if you want the world to be better.

Too few are willing to do this in this age.

At hackers.town, we have long embraced the idea of helping the N00b.

We have also long acknowledged that we are all N00bs at something.

Know when to help a N00b, especially if you have a strong base of knowledge around a topic.

Don't assume their lack of knowledge is an attack on your expertise.

Find the educational moments and exploit them.

Save the world.

Well this is refreshing..don't think I've ever been to a site that recommends using an adblocker. Awesome! Way to be botwiki.org!

@mala This is something that has always worried me about anti-capitalism.

The problems are real but lie much deeper in the human psyche than just trade and finance.

"Just because there is now a multi-billion-dollar industry based on the abject betrayal of our privacy doesn’t mean the sociopaths who built it have any right whatsoever to continue getting away with it"

Great post!

To be blunt, whith all the BS Facebook has gotten away with for years up until now, I no longer believe anything they do will convince the masses to leave it. I see it with my family, with great frustration and despair.

@natecull YAML definitely falls into the "really weirdly differently" camp with how dynamic it can be and how much you can do with it, yes. 😋

Someone even built a crazy crap scripting language for Minecraft using just the YAML parser Bukkit uses for plugin configs, called it Denizen. ​:BlobCatGoogly:

Really annoyed at the way heteronormativity has made 'sexual tension' this /thing/ in media that's just assumed to exist whenever two people who are gendered as opposite appear in the same work.

FYI, if you like chocolate and don't like slavery, there are a bunch of companies committed to improving the whole industry to make it more transparent and get rid of exploitation. And I can almost guarantee the chocolate they produce will taste better too.

I just found a list and it's now on my tumblr, if you'd like to know more:
