Developer conferences are the one time that I miss not being on Twitter anymore. Most of the speakers and attendees are birdsite only :-(

Hey fediverse, I’m looking for a #job in IT!
I’ve got six years of experience in the field and I’ve been managing a fairly large homelab for a few years too. I can work with Unix-like systems (both #BSD and #Linux) and networks.
I have decent experience in automation, both by scripting myself and using Ansible, and I can write code as well (mainly Go these days but I can pick up Python again if needed, and I’m not against learning new languages).
I’m looking for an interesting and challenging position in systems and/or networks engineering, or more specific stuff like storage, virtualization or even databases. Pretty much anywhere in the European Union is fine (I’ve got french citizenship), including full remote jobs, and I don’t mind having to travel regularly.
You’ll find my resume here and a bit more on the stuff I do in my homelab here. Boosts appreciated!

Carole Cadwalladr’s thoughts on our broken society

At the MyData 2019 conference in Helsinki. I had the absolute pleasure of talking with Carole Cadwalladr after seeing a panel discussion about the great hack and also taking part in a workshop about it.

I realised I had not actually shared her TED talk on my blog, and only shared the great hack via the July public service internet newsletter.

Seems there are multiple Mastodon web clients now, each with a different focus:

- #Halcyon: Twitter-like
- #Brutaldon: Web 1.0
- #Pinafore: speed, simplicity
- #Sengi: multi-instance

Really happy to see so many different Mastodon web clients out there!

"Welcome," the interviewer said, "please have a seat."
"Thank you."
"Right, as you know time engineering is still in it's-"
"-early days, yes. Only invented a year ago."
"We are looking for an experienced engineer."
"I've got five years' experience in the field."
"Excellent!"

For those interested in climate change and tech and can travel into London, this looks good next Wednesday:

A brilliant way to visualize the difference between data, information, knowledge, insight, and wisdom. Discovered on David Perell Monday Musings!

My primarly fear with people calling for rexamination of the values of the Free Software movement is that it will be gutted. It's a truly frightening prospect. The thing that makes Free Software different from "open source" is that it *is* radical, and there is no pretending that Free Software is not a political issue to a certain extend. "Open Source" folks seem to sacrifice a lot for the sake of getting along with evil companies, and I really don't want that to infect libre software.

According to this post, there are three types of programmers: Code Poets, Hardware Hackers, and Application Builders. josephg.com/blog/3-tribes/
