Between this and Wellington's recent network problems, it is time to refer to https://youtu.be/9hTosCUTmck again. (Vague because ... spoilers)

We've literally only just scratched the surface of Foulden Maar. Who knows what else could be in there – an entire moa skeleton, with feathers? OR we could let a Malaysian company grind it up into pig food additive. You choose. #SaveFouldenMaar
I wish we had an enormous, rotating habitat with cities and parks right now. God that would be so cool. We would value and protect the shit out of it I bet. https://twitter.com/jacqklimas/status/1126583388473839616
Congratulations to all executives software developers at @YouTube@twitter.com. Your recommender algorithm has figured out how to algorithmically curate sexualized videos of children and to progressively recommend them people who watched other erotic content. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/03/world/americas/youtube-pedophiles.html
Well...here's the damn problem....
we write "Millenials Are Killing The [X] Industry" because when you write "Unsustainable Profit-Driven Systems Are Crumbling Around A Wage-Suppressed Global Populace Serving Roughly 2000 Aging Billionaires" people get too depressed to click through & watch our hair cream ads

Hello Python Twitter. What is the project or application of Python -- that's not python itself -- that has made you the most excited this year?
Share it with me. This is something I'm deeply interested in expanding my knowledge on, and I want to hear about it!
Wow. Really worth reading. About assisted dying.
I'd like to share some reflections on the death of a patient. I’ve thought about her a lot.
She gave me explicit consent to tweet the details of her case, about four hours before she died. Her hope was that someone might benefit from her experience.
Uber, Lyft etc are NOT ridesharing, and shouldn't be allowed to call themselves such.
Someone else already wrote well about this https://www.poparide.com/blog/ridesharing-vs-ridehailing/
I can't see this model of Merc being popular in Christchurch https://www.stuff.co.nz/motoring/112740168/driving-mercedesbenzs-firstever-pureelectric-vehicle - the Mercedes EQC
I long w all my heart for a world that no longer burns fossil fuels. I don’t care if my hair is never silky again, if I never see Athens, if I can’t have blueberries in the winter, if luxury dies forever. I want a world that values love more than anything.
Explained to my 9 yo how programming works:
1. You have something you want to do.
2. You write code to do it.
3. The code doesn't work.
4. You fix the mistakes.
5. When the program works, you realize your idea was wrong.
6. You fix the idea.
7. Goto 2.
Decades of research shows job training programs don't work at scale because of lack of *supply* of appropriate good jobs. There are always nice learned-to-code stories (I'm one: started coding as a kid and it literally saved my life) but those don't scale. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/12/us/mined-minds-west-virginia-coding.html
@gael I took the leap and installed /e/ on my Moto G (after ensuring I had a working backup phone).
It was very easy because I already had LineageOS and TWRP installed. Working nicely so far thanks. Not clear if/how I can install more apps...
(BTW my first linux was about Mandrake 7.0 thanks for that too)
