Ah
So when my coworker said "I will fix the backups on the server" what he actually meant was "I will make the backups fill up the drive until prod goes down and I will also not copy the backups to any cloud storage"
A slight miscommunication I feel

Décès de Cédric Chouviat: des vidéos témoignent de la violence de l’interpellation policière

Interpellé le 3 janvier, à Paris, lors d’un contrôle de police, Cédric Chouviat est décédé des suites d’un arrêt cardiaque. Sur des vidéos obtenues par Mediapart, on voit trois policiers plaquer au sol Cédric qui, sur le ventre et encore casqué, montre des signes d’épuisement. Ces images démentent la première version des forces de l’ordre, qui omet la violence de l’interpellation

Drew this a while back and then wasn’t sure about how to color it, so after making several variations over past few months I decided to just finish it.

Looks like I've been 14 years at Unity by now. So instead of doing something useful, I wrote one of them "here's a look at the past" blog posts :) aras-p.info/blog/2020/01/04/Fo

"I use Linux as my operating system," I stated proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. He swiveled around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision. "Actually," he said with a grin, "Linux is just the kernel. You use GNU+Linux!" I don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk: "I use Abyss, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. It's Linux, but not GNU+Linux."

The smile quickly drops from the man's face. His body began convulsing, he foamed at the mouth, and he dropped to the floor with a sickly thud. As he writhed around he screamed, "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!" In a cool fashion, I replied "Abyss uses the LLVM compiler suite, GCC uninvolved."

With a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life was ejected from his body. He lied on the floor, cold and limp. I've womansplained him to death.

Os Keyes on Automatic #Gender Recognition systems:

logicmag.io/nature/the-body-in

"The point is that there’s no such thing as a tool of measurement that merely “measures.” Any measurement system, once it becomes integrated into infrastructures of power, gatekeeping, and control, fundamentally changes the thing being measured. The system becomes both an opportunity (for those who succeed under it) and a source of harm (for those who fail). And these outcomes become naturalized: we begin to treat how the tool sees reality as reality itself."

So we just add more categories and think deeply about the ethics right?

Nahh:

"So rather than focus on reforming AGR — adding new categories or caveats or consent mechanisms, which are all moves that implicitly accept its deployment — we should push back more generally. We should focus on delegitimizing the technology altogether, ensuring it never gets integrated into society, and that facial recognition as a whole (with its many, many inherent problems) goes the same way. Do not just ask how we resist it — ask the people developing it why we need it. Demand that legislators ban it, organizations stop resourcing it, researchers stop designing it."
