I see lots of people arguing that microsoft's open source efforts are in good faith.
I don't believe that is possible, and I won't believe that is possible until microsoft releases critical components of their software under the (a)gpl version 3 or later.
Microsoft spent years operating under a model of Embrace Extend Extinguish, and we have no reason to believe that they have changed.
Microsoft is your enemy. The fact that they are embracing a thing you love should terrify you.
Want to play an interesting game around #representation? Play “spot the person of colour” in the #London tube. What I mean are the ads. Whether they’re selling furniture, vitamins, holidays, or toothbrushes, if you see a person’s skin in an ad (either cartoon or photograph) it’s probably a white person. Some days it’s 90% white. Others it’s 100%.

Two UK parties will not get my vote: the Tories and Labour. The tories HAVE been a disaster and Labour wants to be. A party that wants to leave Europe can’t have my vote.
@ajroach42 i have said it before and I will keep saying
Give me the next next generation!!
I don’t want prequels, I don’t want movies, I only kinda want the Picard show. I want the show that’s 60-80 years after tng, 1 cameo in the first few episodes, and then all new shit. Except for the throwback eps obvs.
The future is private, says Zuckerberg.

I am about 90 minutes from wheels-down in America. That means I'm about 135 minutes from Taco Bell! It's one of my vices. I love #TacoBell.
I'm searching cars on carmax. I can search by number of cylinders in the engine (which I am surprised anyone searches by), but I cannot find a way to search by "number of asses I can sit in this car at the same time." Number of seats or number of people that can be seated isn't an option I can find!
So Marcus Hutchins, of #WannaCry fame and who had been arrested in the US has pleaded guilty to writing banking #trojan software. Over on the birdsite there's lots of strong opinions. I blogged my opinion that it's a big world out there and trying to dismiss him as a criminal or pardon him because he's a hero are fundamentally misguided. https://blog.paco.to/2019/marcus-hutchins-infosec-soul-searching/
