"Vice Magazine ... claimed a written agreement with a Mainland Chinese woman barring discussion of her sexual orientation and relationships was not “legally binding” so therefore could be ignored"
Holy shit, #vice.

Assange in Court.
I was deeply shaken while witnessing yesterday’s events in Westminster Magistrates Court. Every decision was railroaded through over the scarcely heard arguments and objections of Assange’s legal team, by a magistrate who barely pretended to be listening.
We've set up a Tilde-like server for our web design classes, and have just put up a HOWTO on how you can make your own with a Raspberry Pi: https://tilde.pt/~rlafuente/docs/howto-tilde-rpi/
Satya Nadella is a Distraction From Microsoft's Real Leadership and Abuses http://techrights.org/2019/10/15/satya-nadella-is-a-distraction/
@prokoudine Yeah, the way you separate the media/social media part from the leadership issue makes good sense to help frame this. Thanks for your insight, Alexandre :-)
@xuv Thank you for this. Still processing but agree with the sentiment, the "founder-loyalty" angle really did it for me. Thanks again, you're always on point.
I've been having a *lot* of trouble finding a position on the RMS situation.
On one hand, I'm embarassed as a privileged person for having disregarded my friends' comments on his unacceptable behaviours, preferring my much more comfortable view of RMS as a weird hero. I believe the complaints and think they should be acted upon.
On the other hand, I'm very wary of the calls for ostracism. I really don't think banishment is the right way to deal with problems in any community. I also think the original denouncing blog post clearly went through specific efforts to associate Stallman with much worse behaviours than it's fair to charge him with.
I don't enjoy public ranting, but I'm still having issues on where to stand. I'd love some help thinking this through.
Dear fellow educators: Do you have any advice regarding self-hosting a server for students in a teaching context? Any no-nos or warnings from people who've been there?
We're now setting up a self-hosted tilde.club-like web server for teaching code and web design. We'd love any insight if you have it!
