It's an absolute shame that this isn't a more widespread skill. Devs MUST be expected to find the right level of abstraction when speaking to folks who aren't in our specialization, or developers at all.
It's embarrassing how many devs think this is extraneous to their work.
I think that 20% of my job in DevRel is mostly just helping other teams speak like humans.
I spent parts of January working on a new kind of search engine. Instead of indexing the unfathomable internet, it focuses on enabling search for neighbourhoods of related websites—webrings, or other kinds of topically similar sites.
New post: Hello from Super Blood Moon Eclipse https://emmas.site/blog/2021/05/26/super-blood-moon-eclipse
andrew lee just seized over 700 channels on freenode because they mentioned libera.chat in their topic.
This includes projects like openbsd, wikimedia, FOSDEM, etc.
https://archive.is/uHw1g shows 720 channels that match what is being checked.
here's an example log: https://gist.github.com/pushcx/ab2a1d5b1d18e964c581ef18ccb3a79f
boost this if you care about foss in any way.

New post: Re-visioning WisCon for racial justice https://emmas.site/blog/2021/05/25/re-visioning-wiscon

I am disproportionately annoyed by various mainstream media articles about the Freenode takeover referring to Andrew Lee as "the crown prince of Korea". Korea does not *have* a crown prince. One half is a republic and the other half is a dictatorship. Andrew Lee does *call* himself that, and he may (sources differ) be distantly related to the last actual monarch of Korea (Sunjong, deposed 1910). But it's a self-proclaimed title not recognized by anyone except, apparently, lazy journalists. Feh.
fed up with forced obsolescence and proprietary devices, am switching to a non-proprietary system that works on old devices and is compatible with a broad range of hardware from various vendors. the ui is not quite as foolproof, but it's not as hard as it seems. and it's just as effective, if not more so.
