Logging into my Linux laptop from my Lorenz Lo15. Case sensitivity is a bit of a problem when having a baudot terminal.

"On 10 April, astrophysicists announced that they had captured the 1st ever image of a #blackhole.

No headlines mentioned that the image would have been impossible without open-source software: #Matplotlib, a #Python library for graphing data.

Just 5 days later, the NSF rejected a grant to support that ecosystem, saying that the software lacked sufficient impact.

#opensource is widely acknowledged as crucially important in science, yet it is funded non-sustainably."

Since the whole #HackerNarratives blogpost would be unseemly long, I decided to publish the first chapter - on popculture:

alxd.org/how-elon-musk-takes-w

"For years, we've been accepting the capitalistic and individualistic narratives on technology, painting an invention as a work of a single, exceptional individual - not years of work of the whole scientific community or a group of engineers."

I don't know if I posted about my latest blogpost:

Hackers in popular culture - the curse of being an eternal rebel

alxd.org/hackers-in-popular-cu

> Using "computeromancy" as an aesthetic makes true hacking much more tame and hackers' criticism of our capitalist culture - toothless. They're dangerous because they're skilled criminals / geniuses, not because they see more than us or raise valid points against how we use technology.

Breaking: The text of #Article13 and the #EU #Copyright Directive has just been finalised

juliareda.eu/2019/02/eu-copyri

Please reshare widely and **take action**. This has the potential to endanger the #internet as we know it, making it more and more composed of only large platforms.

This has the possibility of killing #alternative #socialmedia projects and small #startups trying to compete with the big #corporations.
