Lazy Reading for 2018/09/23

I still have a backlog.  Geez.  I’m starting to worry I’m posting too much for anyone to read through.

Your unrelated dragonfly image this week: Common darter.

  1. Are you really linking something from a blog with Top Posts containing:

    Something is rotten in the Linux Foundation
    The Al Capone theory of sexual harassment
    Bryan Cantrill has been accused of verbal abuse by at least seven people
    Operating systems war story: How feminism helped me solve one of file systems’ oldest conundrums
    Suicide and society: Where does responsibility for preventing suicide lie?
    Why I won’t be attending Systems We Love
    The Linux community can’t remain silent while leaders make anti-woman comments
    Living in a collapsing democracy
    How to eat paleo at Trader Joe’s (mostly)
    Getting free of toxic tech culture

    Please tell me DragonflyBSD isn’t infected like this, because me and a lot of GNU/Linux powerusers are really thinking about it.

  2. Linking to something is not an endorsement of it. I don’t like the way that article is written, nor do I want to be a part of that argument. However, I did want to note the (unsubstantiated, but I don’t know where I’d find otherwise) non-disparagement clause from the Linux Foundation. I don’t like any organization signing employees to agreements that last beyond employment – general noncompetes, or speech restrictions.

  3. I see. Just hope Dragonfly won’t follow FreeBSD (unlikely, since this bullshit is very rare when there’s a BDFL).
