Who says information design is dead?
So, in the new Overwatch short. In one of the cryo pods there is a Swedish scientist named Arrenhius, after Svante Arrenhius who was the first person to investigate the effect that doubling atmospheric carbon dioxide would have on global climate.
The fact that they thought to include that is cool. He is one of few scientists I remember reading about in school.
Still coming down from witnessing my first total eclipse. Nothing that happened before Monday seems to matter as much. I'm a tiny insignificant creature, floating on a tiny spaceship, like a spec of dust, on the outer edges of a small galaxy, only 164 million light years across.
I will see if I can locate where I left my motivations. Somewhere between here and Salem OR I suppose.
Skull doily skull doily skull doily. 💀😁💀😁💀😁
Capitalism is nothing but a system of caste
The border is not just wall or a line on a map. It's a power structure, a system of control.
The border is everywhere that ppl live in fear of deportation, everywhere migrants are denied the right accorded citicizens, everywhere human being are segregated into excluded and included.
The border devides the whole world into gated communities and prisons.
If I were a better programmer with godlike charisma, or a least a solid 18, I would find five other programmers who actually gave a tinker's damn about digital prepress and professional color correction and redo the GIMP completely so I never, ever have to touch Photoshop again to do simple things like curving a black plate.

This is where we need customer support people who will say: "hi thank you, can you elaborate" and follow up, and get the relevant information to the devs. (Yes, somebody needs to do this, no, its not developers' job, but we need developers to recruit, value and actually listen to these people, and people who do take time to understand the context and vision of what the developers are doing to help )
We need community builders. (@patdavid's efforts at pixls.us and @opensourcedesign are just 2 such examples) such venues help users to organize and discuss, and for developers to communicate with the users.
A cool person and long time friend, Tyler Magill opposed the Nazis in Charlottesville, and was attacked while protecting students, and suffered a stroke as a result of that attack.
Tyler is a cool DJ, a great parent, and has been standing up to Nazis for years now, and I hope will again soon.
I think many of you would like Tyler a lot. Currently the instance I'm on doesn't seem to be federating very wide, so if anyone can boost I'd appreciate it, because people should know who Tyler is.
