"trickle down economics" is literally just a fancy way of saying pyramid scheme

now you might be thinking, gardening isn't very cybre. But that's where you're wrong chummer. Reducing your reliance on the man is as cybre as it gets. Hack The Garden.

Part of FLOSS culture should be actively encouraging novice coders* to reinvent the wheel.

I'm a big proponent of learning by doing, and just reading other people's code and contributing incremental improvements (via bug fixes, etc.) doesn't have the educational value of writing the code yourself.

Encourage people to read existing code to see what others have done, but then encourage them to make their own version too.

* I include experienced coders new to the language/framework/ecosystem.

If capitalism is the most efficient way of distributing resources, why are so many people starving to death when the world produces enough food to feed literally everyone? Why are so many houses sitting empty while people are forced to sleep on the street and freeze to death each winter?

I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but it frustrates me so much that people buy into the "capitalist markets are efficient" argument.

What's the plan for archivists and librarians preserving these streaming only DRMed only video exclusives for the future?

Like in ~2118 when Star Trek Discovery's first season falls into the public domain, will Archive.org's holographic storage depend on present day pirates to make it available?

Or have we just admitted as a culture that we won't have a public commons in 100 years and anything that isn't on physical media with weak encryption is lost to time.

Like, okay, Data's face pasted over Zuck's face, hilarious - except that Data is a good person and a relatable character for a lot of good people out there. You're literally making Zuck look *better* by comparing him to Data? If you want to be mean to him you have to paste on the face of someone *bad*, no? Data is awesome.

i've been playing fortnite lately, and while i have gotten into the top ten before just by avoiding confrontation, this last round is probably my proudest. i only got 45th place, but two eliminations in that time.

okay, website and gui makers. if you're going to set a background color, please also set a text color, and vice versa. you don't know what people's defaults are.

which is extra ironic, considering i'm wearing my trans pride bracelet and my 'i survived testosterone poisoning' shirt.

apparently it's trans day of visibility, which is funny cause i can't remember the last time i felt this invisible and ignored.

Proposal:

Replace the old, unmaintained word 'warehouse' with its shiny modern equivalent, 'stuffplace'.
