I made a thing that turns the full history of an RSS/Atom feed into a lightweight static HTML+CSS navigation UI. It works with WordPress feeds and the few feeds which implement the RFC5005 standard (otherwise it can't get the whole history). github.com/jameysharp/reader-p

We've got a blog post that explains our views & reaction to #GItHub's new #Sponsors program & related initiatives. We're concerned that it (so far) ignores key governance issues for #FOSS projects related to funding. sfconservancy.org/blog/2019/ma #Sustainability #FOSSSustainability

Today's scientific software package tip: if you have data associated, and the data are *huge*, consider making a dummy data set or a small subset of your data, so that reviewers don't need to clear gigs (or worse) or hard disk space just to test your software!

And we also have a @thecarpentries open space scheduled! Saturday 1:30 at room 22 (right after the... giant rock paper scissors battle royale?!?)
@pycon

pyOpenSci.org open space Sunday morning, 10 AM! Come learn more about the project, and how to contribute to make it more awesome! =)

A variant of Linux encoded entirely in the genome, distributed over the centuries and millennia of human reproduction, slowly changing and breaking and reforming, until it's rediscovered in the far, far future in a small mammilian offshoot of humanity, recompiled, and the wifi drivers just dont work for fucks sake.

#hottake: static type enthusiasts are forced to _think_ about their code first, which is why development appears to go so smoothly. If everyone, regardless of language, thought about the design up front they, too, would see similar benefits.

Just some #coffee shots around the world. During the last three days I have travelled half the world, from #London all the way to #NewZealand via #Singapore

The first photo is right now in Wellington. The second shot is a #lebanese coffee in Little India in Singapore and the last one from a waterstones coffee shop in London.

Even though our world is huge and there is diversity everywhere, I believe there are very few places you can't find coffee...

And you, why don't you #showmeyourcoffee 😺

This is one of the reasons I'm still bullish on the web: at least with a website, you can install an ad blocker or a tracker blocker. With apps, though, it's kind of a black box.

It's also one of the reasons I'm glad I set up a Raspberry Pi with Pi-Hole (pi-hole.net/) this weekend. Amazingly it says it's blocked 9.2% of requests so far, which is impressive given that both my wife and I use adblockers on our web browsers. But of course phones and apps are another story.

Here's something I've been working on the past few weeks:

dcp - remote file copy, powered by the Dat protocol

github.com/tom-james-watson/da

Think of it as a replacement for rsync/scp that doesn't require you to have an SSH connection between the two machines.

We like to talk about the seedy underbelly of the internet being dark net sales of cheap meth and fake assassination sites, but the real seedy behavior is by large companies that prey on the lives of our children, creating shadow profiles for even the youngest of them. Everything from their apps to photos posted with parental love, data mined by AI for sinister ends -- How to trap our children in the unyielding web of dopamine slavery, clicking links in a proverbial field of advertising.

Or maybe it's just me.
