I think I'm losing my motivation to change the world. We won't make it past 2050, so I'm not even sure who would benefit from my legacy. I just want to enjoy the time I have left.

Trading our worn-out hearts now for colder parts
Will we end up dancing alone?
Head over heels for watches and wires
I don’t intend on selling my soul

I think I'm losing my motivation to change the world. We won't make it past 2050, so I'm not even sure who would benefit from my legacy. I just want to enjoy the time I have left.

Did you know? There have been three important earthquakes in Mexico happening exactly the same day: September 19th. One in 1985, another in 2017, and now once again in 2022. No scientific explanation yet for the coincidence.

This really fucking hurts, this person is fucking right. I won't abandon the free software movement, but still, I will reconsider a lot of things.

Arduino IDE 2.0 is now based on VS Code instead of Processing. I don't like the idea, I hope 1.0 stays for a while.

When five billionaires cite you in the desert to talk about the future of technology, and they end up talking about bunkers to escape the climate crisis they helped create, it makes you think that, indeed, WE'RE FUCKED.

This letter will kill RMS (/s) 

[Just to clarify, I'm not making fun of people who are very clueless and misinformed regarding the free software movement and GNU/Linux in general. This could have been me when I was 12. I'm just making fun of RMS' pedantism.]

This letter will kill RMS (/s) 

Hey, Richard! I heard you were friends with the creator of Linux, my favorite open source OS. I use it everyday because it is free, so I didn't have to pay for it; unlike Windows, which has a lot of intellectual property. You contributed to Linux and for that reason I think you're a great coder!

I hate the idea of open source, because giving everything away for free means you can't eat because you don't get paid. But the version of Linux I'm using (Ubuntu) is very good and I love the design, it is better than Windows. Now I don't have to crack Windows anymore!

I want to be like you someday, can you teach me how to code so I can become the next Linus Torvalds and create an entire OS from scratch? It will not be open source because I want money, but you will be more famous if my OS takes off, so please help me. I have no money to give you, but please help me and I will pay you when I get money.

Best wishes.

It's been almost a year since I last wrote in my blog. I can't believe time went by so quickly.

Yet another loveless series of what started with “Useless Melodrama”. The original version that I published yesterday was incomplete, it was missing a lot of things. This new version has nine paragraphs, versus four in the original.

“Once Again” is a nine-paragraph tragedy that is a sequel of “Decency”, and takes place months after its events. It will be available only for a week, as a free download.

Wait, this should be part of «Once Again», it was a bit short and all of this complements it pretty well.

I wish I didn't feel anything like that for anyone ever again, it just can't work. Besides, it's stupid to even want it, like, I have everything I want and I'm proud of who I am, why should I invest time in stupid goals? It sucks so much.

I wish it hadn't ended like this. It was too fast: months of stupid feelings and hope, that took a single day to collapse after doing that stupid thing.

Every chance I've ever given, has been an error. I should know better before thinking on committing another error.

There's only one person who has rejected me twice, but that's on me for having given her another chance. I don't want to give anyone else a chance, ever.

This is key in the movement towards inclusion! It is important that we understand that not everyone is well educated about LGBTQ+ issues, and that their offensive actions might not even be intentional, so we can peacefully attempt to educate them and guide them. People can change, so let's give them a chance instead of cancelling them on their first misstep.

If they refuse to understand, or make clear their offenses were intentional, then it is a different story and the arguments I presented do not apply. We still need to act with a lot of consideration, though.

My teachers are suddenly obsessed with pronouns today?

One that I deeply respect because of how good as a teacher he is, said “I won't use inclusive pronouns unless you bring to me a dictionary and show me that it is officially accepted.” He has talked about how we should respect and include people regardless of their sexual orientation (which he exemplified with Turing), religion, and other characteristics.

The next class, the other teacher said “there are people who, because of their sexual orientation [sic], want us to change the way we speak.” (I tried to correct her.) She explained the whole thing as it if was a joke, which is sad because otherwise she's a nice person. She later said that if someone wants to be called in a certain way, she would do it.

I came to think that, maybe, in many cases, it's not necessarily transphobia, but rather that they're not educated about sex and gender identity issues, and thus they don't give them enough importance or seriousness.
