"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says 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 alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."
the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."
with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.
So the nation wide 911 outage was caused by one bad NIC at CenturyLink.

Man erkennt, dass der #35c3 zu Ende geht, wenn mein DECT und ich unsere Basis suchen.
I think I will toot every sunday what I worked on this week.
On #jami (ex #Ring):
1. We deployed https://jami.net the new website
2. I did some fixes in the file transfer event loop and fixed a behaviour with the dht proxy
3. WIP: bump to GNUTls 3.6.5 (Tls 1.3 supports, yeay), it works for file transfers but still not building on mac os.
#35c3 was my 2nd congress. loved it. dropped a link to our assembly in irc and poeple showed up in person trying to setup bgp for dn42, we even got a beer. we made a lot of noob mistakes, but everyone was friendly. did 2 talks on smaller stages and got really nice feedback from the community. fediverse meetup was fun (but I was too late.. but I met @rixx and he's kind of famous as I learned :)
last but not least - without @aurora and the chaoszone team all of this wouldn't be possible. thanks

Can we do more to make the ccc congress more welcoming to people of colour? If yes, what could we do?
This is an older article but I still agree with it. Coding as a blue collar job is why we also absolutely need labor and trade unions for coding. Too many coders are essentially wage slaves or old school gold panners, deluded by the notion that they're going to have The Idea and strike it rich. We need to organize, accept that the huge salaries are aberrations, dig in and protect our own from predatory employers.
