"You’ve likely never heard of 82-year-old computer scientist Lynn Conway, but her discoveries power your smartphones and computers. Her research led to successful startups in Silicon Valley, supported national defense, and powered the internet.

Long before becoming a highly respected elderly professor at the University of Michigan, Conway was a young researcher with IBM IBM . It was there, on August 29, 1968, that IBM’s CEO fired her for [being trans]. Nearly 52 years later, in an act that defines its present-day culture, IBM apologized and sought forgiveness."

I'm looking for a game to play online with someone who's on macOS. Ideally something light/easy to jump in and out of. It seems like a bit of a niche category. Recommendations welcome!

extremely normal that the fate of the whole planet rests in the hands of a minority of people who are only passionate about guns and measuring things in body parts

Interesting to see Valve doing a flatpak-based approach for Steam games: gitlab.steamos.cloud/steamrt/s

Hopefully that could make it easier for devs to target Linux as a known platform, but I wonder how it compares to distributing an actual flatpak and what it means for non-Steam distribution of Linux games

2020 caused me to try learning both vim and emacs
