I have some exciting professional news to share!
The Sloan Foundation has generously funded "Collaborating on Software Archiving for Institutions" #CoSAI, with 3 streams of work:
1) technical development on open source, decentralized toolkit for software archiving & replay; 2) community building and education on software archiving; and 3) optimizing machine and human workflows
Psyched that this is a big collaborative project, feat. the one and only @wilkie

#Github #Copilot gives an idea why #Microsoft paid so much for Github. They were after data: Tons of food for their AI, millions of contributors that now 'work' for MS for free.
You publish your code under GPLv3, even AGPLv3? So what? The AI learns from your code and uses it to generate code that is possibly proprietary. Does #GPL forbid this practice? (I don't think so)

You know what: it'd be great if people who need accessibility didn't go around calling other people's work "trash". I get it: accessibility is hard, and required for people to use a computer—but you know how proprietary platforms deal with it? They pay developers. You know what Linux users do for it? They fucking whine about it, and then they go out and say that any effort made is trash.
Well, guess what: stuff doesn't fix itself.
Didn't manage to make anything close to a game in 48 hours, but I might still submit something before the end of #ld48
#Godot-SQLite wraps the efficient public domain #SQL #database SQLite in with GDNative methods, allowing for Godot projects written #GDScript to use SQLite. Godot-SQLite supports the Godot path format, allowing for res:// and user:// URIs to be used without issue. Godot-SQLite provides many helper functions for common database operations.

throwing shade at proprietary qualitative software
crying with laughter bc Dedoose could not get their shit together enough in like 10 years to migrate their web app off ADOBE FLASH and now the one thing they had going for them (collab on the web) is not available for the indefinite future
in the year 2020 they shut down their product bc they use Flash 😂
(also their CEO was a major fucking asshole to my colleagues and I will never forget nor forgive)
