Hello everyone !
📢 🔴 URGENT 🔴
An awesome software is dying, because its #developper has not time anymore to care of it.
It's an alternative of Adobe AfterEffect : Natron (https://natrongithub.github.io/)
Please, can Mastodon community search for a C++ dev, which want to maintain it ? or search for a company which work with free software ? It's very important.
Boost very appreciated
Thanks in advance for your contribution !
The City of Dallas owns the classical FM radio station in the area (101.1 FM WRR). Interestingly, it's one of very few Texas stations to have a three letter call sign with a W (not a K). That's due to it's age, as it was registered in 1921.
It's a bizarre station because it's government owned, sells advertising, broadcasts city council meetings AND church services on Sunday.

"Click auditing" is exactly the kind of thing I'm talking about.
The circular logic used to justify this, is that sites that track their user's click are slower and less usable. URL shorteners (t.co) break the web. Click auditing "fixes" this?
Reality: sites that didn't track clicks, were faster & more responsive. By eliminating that advantage, browsers undermine user privacy.
We live in a world where stealing our attention is the most profitable business. Yet, knowledge work demands long periods of focused attention to get anything worthwhile done. We must constantly fight to protect our attention from the myriad of digital and physical distractions. Constant distraction is our default state now unless we take active steps to create focus.

The programming world lost a very intelligent and caring contributor today who exemplified the hacker spirit. I never had the opportunity to interact with him directly, but read plenty that he wrote. By all accounts that I have ever heard, he was always willing to share his knowledge with newcomers and experienced developers alike. RIP Joe Armstrong.
high school: your essay MUST consist of exactly 7 parts, with precisely 5 sentences in each part. the parts must each correspond to a specific point, and follow this EXACT argumentative structure. each section must contain EXACTLY these five sentences in relation to the point this paragraph is making. if you use ANY first person pronoun, your chair WILL explode
