supports Groups. I'm wondering if anyone has developed something like a mailing list for AP yet?

I want to have a technical group ala a mailing list.

Anyone know of anything like this yet?

Gonna take the whole "Don't scab on prime day" moment to promote one of my favourite alternatives to an amazon product.

The Movie Database is a free community-run alternative to IMDB, unlike amazon's shitty website, TMDB isn't full to bursting with ads, trackers and sluggish JavaScript, and provides an excellent platform for folk to catalogue information about their favorite films without being marketed to.

Please support it, not just on prime day, but any time you need info on a film. Keep information free.

Hey awesome listeners,

No show this week. @cwebber and @emacsen are pretty busy with other projects they can't wait to tell you about!

Hey! :) The Recurse Center is "funding Fellowships of up to $10,000 for women, trans, and non-binary people to work on programming projects, research, and art at RC this fall.

Apply by July 22nd and start August 12th or September 23rd."

This is an incredible opportunity – if you want to be part of a diverse, kind programming community, and spend three months focusing on projects close to your heart, this is your chance! Happy to answer any questions you might have! \o/

When you read your own tests in your code and wonder what the heck they do... it might be time to take a break

First (very tentative) release of the Uncannonical S-Expression Parser for Python. I need to do a bunch of stuff before this is ready for PyPy.

Just told a whole bunch of people about my anti-spam ActivityPub paper by sending them an unsoliited message. not to think about it.

I don't know if this paper will be accepted, or accepted in this form (it's quite long, so i may pull only one or two suggestions out and submit that) but I want to get this in front of eyes early.

This is a draft of what I'll hopefully be submitting to Rebooting Web of Trust. If anyone would like to take a look, constructive feedback welcome:

2600 has once again shown that it has fortitude in the face of adversity in creating a new website showing the addresses of US concentration camps:

Their first issue has US White House Phone numbers, and in the 90s, they published the DeCSS source code.


My anti-spam paper first draft is done. I need some help with formatting to get it up online in a form presentable for the conference but once I'm done, I'll be publishing it for public review.

Grammarly is proprietary and evil, but when writing, I find it can be very helpful to have something check my grammar and writing style.

Do folks know of a Free Software equivalent? Extra points if there's either an Emacs or Code plugin!

I posted a copy of the D&D episode we did on @librelounge to reddit's r/rpg and it was well received.

I posted the same thing to r/dnd and it was immediately downvoted.

Makes me wonder....

In case it isn't clear, Google has now reached, in many sectors, the "extinguish" phase of "embrace, extend, extinguish".

"Google is locking down API access to Gmail data (and later, Drive data) soon, and some of your favorite third-party apps might find themselves locked out of your Google account data. "

On note of proprietary gaming... I've been playing a bit of the revived City of Heroes. It's proprietary and requires Windows, but I believe it runs under Wine.

If anyone would like to play with me, feel free to ping me.

I hate Facebook as much as the next person, but the largest strike wave in recent American history was organized entirely on Facebook.

You have to use the tools you have to reach people where they're at and help them move to where they need to be. That's what organizing *is*.
