Finally somewhere that gets it right! Just wash your hands.

Design for someone at the edge. When you design for someone with a disability, everyone benefits. Not once have I encountered a design that incorporates disability needs that has caused any problems for me.

Happy Friday, lovely fediversians.

Yeah, it seems like bad stuff is all there is because that's what gets click/headlines/attention etc, but there is so much good out there in the world as well.

Remember there are so many people out there fighting for good everyday that will never get the props they deserve.

You're not alone. You're never alone.

Dear white folx,
Work on breaking your racist unconscious biases, here’s an exercise for you. If you see a POC and have an “uncomfortable” feeling/thought immediately picture that person as if they were white, if (when?) you become more comfortable then you were being racist and profiling, so stop, recognize that, be better and go on your way.
It’s not a perfect exercise but it’s a simple one, and you want to be better, which means you need to be aware of your words/thoughts/actions.

Please boost.
Fediverse, I have a request.
If you know a woman that is:
-from Ethiopia, Sudan or South Sudan
-Tech savvy
-Has an interest in Digital Safety and Security

Can you have them reach out to me? (DM if you need an email addy instead) We’ve a Safe Sister Digital Safety Fellowship specifically for them, and applications are open until September 28 and I’d like to send them information.

Programming is 99% plumbing, 1% really hard mathematics. When those who excel at the 1% build the remaining 99% also, you usually end up with systems that have unnecessarily-complicated plumbing.

I cannot decide if it’s because I don’t want to remember having to run the mundane manual process, if I’m just interested in figuring out how to automate what someone might say as not possible, that I’m obsessed with just MAKING it work or all of the above. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ it’s hump day.
