We're seeking visually impaired or blind people with coding experience who want to help ensure solid screen reader behavior in a new iteration of the CodeMirror in-browser code editor. Accessibility in the previous iteration is terrible, and I want to do better this time around.

If you're prepared to answer questions about coding while blind, or to test-drive the current prototype of the editor, please get in touch here or via marijn@haverbeke.nl

"Amazon Should Replace Local Libraries to Save Taxpayers Money"
is a headline definitely proving how platform capitalism has ruined society

surveillance capitalism is too expensive.
nobody can afford free, when it is freedom that is being sold.

Just found a sneaky Easter egg in the codebase

"If people can use their computers to their full capacity they might scare the devs away" is a terrible argument and a testament to the abusive relationship between console developers and gamers who want homebrew.

Seeing all these anti-homebrew gaming people on Reddit advocate against their own freedom makes me want to laugh/cry.

One of the things I kickstarted at Creative Commons when I was tech lead (though wasn't there for the completion of) was CC BY-SA and GPL compatibility, and one of the use cases was games. Happy to see that Wesnoth now supports GPL or CC BY-SA for assets: wesnoth.org/start/1.14/

Protest outside of Amazons AWS NYC summit today

I agree with Karl Fogel here:

'I've never understood the "GPL is not free" argument. The only restriction the GPL imposes is that it prevents people from imposing further restrictions. To say that this results in less freedom has always seemed perverse to me. If the retention of monopoly is somehow a freedom to be protected, then the word "freedom" is no longer
meaningful.'

I think Stallman also said basically the same thing.

There should be a global 'awareness' week for developers. For a week reduce your RAM to 2 GB, disable all cores except 2, downscale your resolution to 1366x768 and cap your internet at 1 Mbps (or less for mobile developers)...

Maybe, just maybe we will start to have less crappy, bloated software.

Had a dream that I was on a commercial airplane that went to low earth orbit and came back in 5 minutes flat... Trippy stuff

Just another example of how #DRM violates your rights as a software user: Metal Gear Rising is now unplayable on the Mac because of DRM. https://u.fsf.org/2ml Join us on September 18 to fight back on the International Day Against DRM: https://u.fsf.org/2lw

Got a Nintendo Switch (RMS forgive me) betting on homebrew software making it tolerable. Also finally became an FSF associate member and upstreaming some chemistry-related Guix packages I've been using during my internship.
