We still have a tech position open at the Freedom of the Press Foundation (a nonprofit): a Sr. Software Engineer position to work on SecureDrop, the open source whistleblower platform used by 65+ media organizations, originally developed by the late Aaron Swartz.
You get paid to work
✅ from anywhere in the world
✅ on a world-changing project
✅ that's open source,
✅ stewarded by a small team
✅ that's led by a woman.
Help spreading the word is much appreciated:
"Whoa, hold on– what's going on here?"
"We're your friends, and we all love you. You haven't been feeling well for a long time. We're concerned. You've been sysadmin-ing."
"What? No. No! I don't do that, I'm just tired."
"Stacy here saw you logging into a remote shell system at work and you were… running diagnostics."
*Stacy breaks down in tears.*
"Initial releases [of the Amiga UI engine] used blue, orange, white and black palettes. This was intentional […] Commodore tested output on the worst televisions they could find, with the goal of obtaining the best possible contrast under these worst-case conditions."
What if modern software would consider the "worst-case conditions," such as low-end/affordable hardware? Maybe that popular framework (no need to name) that you want to use actually makes it unusable for people on such hardware?
Hi! I'm Pamela, and I make the "flan" emoji set:
I learned inkscape to make them, and it has been amazing watching them spread through the Fediverse!
I adore making the set, and I want to add to it and develop new ones! What I need is some breathing room so I can create, and so I'm launching this patreon.
If you enjoy my work, I would really appreciate your support! Thanks!
I have patreon supporters for my flan emojos (emojo not found, this instance doesn't have them) and we met the goal to let me spend a *whole day* making free emojos to hand out and I'm all eeeeeeee!!!! (but I don't have my list ready so it won't be today).
https://patreon.com/flan_foundry if you missed the post bouncing around or haven't seen my emojos and would like to! Making them makes me so happy

@Robby with "maybe consider whether that person will appreciate your unsolicited opinion before you give it" as a close second
