"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

-- Emma Lazarus

I don't have much to say yet other than...

Fuck the fucking Nazis and those who enable them.

Do we have enough polls on the Fediverse?

This is how fascism works, with tech corporations colluding against the public interest. The astonishing leaks can't merely be coincidental, nobody really has such deficient security standards. Assume they read everything that's not encrypted.

We need #python libraries for building things on top of #securescuttlebutt. I see some nice efforts on github.com/pferreir/pyssb but it appears to have completely stalled. Is anyone building anything #python based on #ssb?

Finally: Alpine Linux, i3wm and a physical keyboard on a mobile phone. The keyboard may be a bit worn down, but the n900 is still going strong like it’s 2009 💖

Using a Postgres database during local software development seems complicated, but I've written up a simple way to do it. Along the way I introduce two tools I love for development: direnv and Nix. jamey.thesharps.us/2019/05/29/

The free software developer @olabini@twitter.com, a Swedish citizen and creator of the CoyIM secure instant messenger (among other contributions) has been in prison for 49 days in Ecuador for no reason whatsoever and without bail. This is the Ecuadorian govt acting on behalf of the fascist USG, and against activists putting every journalist and every free software programmer around the world at risk of becoming a political prisoner for whatever the US empire's whims may be on any given day.

Defunding public transportation is eugenics.

"If you can't work enough to afford your own transportation, you deserve to be isolated from society."

There's no other reason to defund public transportation. Period. We have the money, but rich assholes insist they don't need to pay taxes because our wages are enough to live on, even if we're incapable of working 60+ hours a week on two part-time jobs without health insurance or overtime.
