Please don’t use Slack for FOSS projects | Drew DeVault’s Blog
I’ve noticed that more and more projects are using things like Slack as the chat medium for their open source projects. In the past couple of days alone, I’ve been directed to Slack for Babel and Bootstrap. I’d like to try and curb this phenomenon before it takes off any more.

Is There About to be A Great American Awakening? – Eudaimonia and Co
"Is freedom being murdered at school, but never having healthcare or retirement, even if you’re not — just so the economy can keep growing, as the profits of the people who sell the guns and the medicine rise ever higher? If that’s all freedom is, why should anyone want it? But if freedom’s something more than that, what is it, really?

In the end, Europeans have a more sophisticated answer: freedom is the right to realize yourself — without being preyed upon. Not just as a moral or social “agent” —still an individualistic, payoff-maximizing notion — but as a human being, with dignity, possibility, meaning, and purpose, to one’s self, peers, and society."

The latest schoolhouse slaughter shows we have been defeated - The Washington Post
Regular mass gun violence is a particularly American phenomenon, and it’s dissolving society in a particularly American way. With every mass shooting and every utter failure of public policy to respond, the American notion of liberty looks more and more suicidal, a Faustian bargain exchanging sensible restrictions for a nihilistic, diabolical freedom. After the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, which happened in Las Vegas only last year, conservative pundit Bill O’Reilly articulated this grim view most clearly: “Once again, the big downside of American freedom is on gruesome display,” he wrote. “This is the price of freedom.” Liberty stands now in opposition to life and the pursuit of happiness; no longer do all three seem concurrently possible, and it’s clear which of them we’ve chosen.
