"In my version of computational thinking, I imagine an abstract machine with just the data types and operations that I want. If this machine existed, then I could write the program I want. But it doesn’t. Instead I have introduced a bunch of subproblems — the data types and operations — and I need to figure out how to implement them. I do this over and over until I’m working with a real machine or a real programming language. That’s the art of design."

I quite like Dr. Maria Botazzi's description of vaccine production in cooperation with yeast.
> “We ask the yeast to make a protein that looks just like a protein that is made by the virus. Then we immunize the protein and the body then processes this protein and presents it to the immune system. Therefore, you don’t ask your body to do any major manipulation of the coding.”
The term "ethical licenses" has been used by Coraline Ada Ehmke and others to refer to licenses that expand the conditions of who can use software and for what purpose it is being used (see https://firstdonoharm.dev/ and https://ethicalsource.dev/licenses/).
Another one that is used is "3 freedom licenses", as a way to refer to the same idea basically, and it's 3 and not 4 because these licenses take out freedom 0 ("anyone can use the software for any purpose").
But this does not specifically hook into the fact of course that they have not been tested in court yet.

Add --collaborative and ... shared notebooks in jupyter lab! Thanks @manetta for reading the jupyter docs! Interesting overlapping histories of this (decepetively) simple addition: https://blog.jupyter.org/how-we-made-jupyter-notebooks-collaborative-with-yjs-b8dff6a9d8af

31 tools but not one really does what I want, still I'm happy to have (finally) come across this toolbox...
We are very much looking forward to many wonderful things that federation within forges can support.

Since arlier this year, following many requests, we can receive donations. In nine months we already received more than enough to cover our (minimal) expenses for the foreseeable future. (Thank you dear donors!)
So, instead of giving us money, why not support your favourite podcaster this end of year?
You can find the podcasts you most listened to here: Settings » Statistics. From there you can pick a creator that you want to support!
Covid19 vaccine availability
Patent-free vaccine released to the world--interesting how mainstream media didn't cover this.
