Pinned toot

Hello I'm Bram, freesoftware dev, queer, organiser of $stuff and anti-capitalist.

My main actions during the last 10 years were around protecting and decentralizing the internet from talking to EU MEP, to building local associative ISP and self hosting server but I mostly work on @yunohost now.

I also did super nerdy things

But don't be fooled, I mostly shitpost and post cute animals gif 😋

@shiro tu sais que tu peux tester en t'envoyer des dms sans mention x)

Bon ben j'ai fini de coder mon bridge smtp2msmtp, je peux désormais envoyer des mails depuis mon téléphone

Autistic People. So, new Research. Different social skills, not broken ones.

"In essence, what we are demonstrating for the first time is that autistic people's social behaviour includes effective communication and effective social interaction, in direct contradiction of the diagnostic criteria for autism. We have, for the first time, uncovered empirical evidence that there is a form of social intelligence that is specific to autistic people."

In other words, different social skills, not broken ones. We have our own social signalling and can co-operate and interact effectively....with each other. Likewise, non-autistic people can generally co-operate and interact effectively...with each other. But put one of each group together, and they both tend to misunderstand one another. They don't feel rapport with one another, that sense that you just 'click' with someone and understand them.

This isn't a new theory, of course. Dr Damian Milton has been discussing Double Empathy theory for a while now.

Mein goth, je vais bientôt pouvoir envoyer des emails depuis mon telephone portable, une révolution est en marche :thinkhappy:

"how about I turn on the light at my place by sending ... AN EMAIL :thounking::thounking::thounking::thounking:​ "

(don't do that.)

Learning how to write your own smtp server is pretty funny you really enter in the mood of "oh, I can write a super custom server and make it do stupid shit when I'm sending an email to it :thounking: "

It also sound like a very bad idea x)

Thinking about starting my own wiki to put random extract snippet of code for thing I've juste produced that were non-trivial or hard to find 🤔

Like I've juste learn how to write a smtp server in python that auth with the local unix user or how to write a github webhooks server.

But the idea of spending too much time choosing "just the right software" is discouraging /o\

Google a une liste méconnue de tout ce que vous avez acheté en ligne, et personne ne comprend pourquoi

Dans un onglet méconnu intitulé « achats », Google garde une trace de tout ce que vous avez acheté, depuis la création de votre compte gmail. Cette liste est quasiment impossible à effacer.

Vous ne vous souvenez peut-être pas d’avoir acheté le premier album de Zaz en 2010 sur Amazon, mais Google, lui, s’en rappelle très bien. (...)

inside you are two wolves. This is bad, you should go vegan.

I don't understand this meme.
