Remembering Aaron Swartz, who died on this day, a victim of the copyright system walledculture.org/remembering-

By @glynmoody

Aaron's face gets thrown around the internet to prop up campaigns and etc, but it's important to remember that Aaron was an activist for digital rights, and was bullied into suicide by a system that wanted to punish him for his activism. He was also a human being with friends and family who loved him dearly.

If you make a piece of software, and people are required to use that piece of software in order to, say, pay for their housing or groceries or pay back a loan, you are on the hook to make sure that software works for _every single person_ who needs to use it.

All of them.

Every screen reader user. Every person with muscle issues who can't use a mouse. Everyone who doesn't speak English. Everyone with three first names, or no last name. Everyone who is Irish or Jewish and has a ' in their name. Everyone with slow internet.

EVERY person.

"Oh we don't have the resources to do that!" Great. Then you don't have the resources to make and sell that kind of software. Pack up and go home.

was reminded today of the fact that back in high school when I took the APUSH exam, the synth solo from Africa was on LOOP in my head
that's not the only time I had a synth solo stuck in my head during a major exam in high school either

microkernels ready to go "any time now," OS researchers remind industry

me: urban highways and parallel one-way pairs are awful city design
also me: builds a city in simcity 4 literally designed around a grid of parallel one-ways, with a highway bisecting downtown
