Kent Beck thinks tech has a compassion deficit, but actually more interesting is his view on agile:

Q: ""You signed the Agile Manifesto almost 20 years ago. How do you feel about agile now?"
A: "It’s a devastated wasteland. The life has been sucked out of it. It’s a few religious rituals carried out by people who don’t understand the purpose that those rituals were intended to serve in the first place."

Ouch.

Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:

to quote Ursula K. Le Guin:

We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings.

Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begins in art, and very often in our art, the art of words.

@kensanata I'm at a point where I'm considering going to my supervisors and asking for every other Friday off (unpaid or otherwise). I love coding, game design, playing with my dogs, and other things. Work? It's alright, sometimes fun, but I pay that time to get money to live.

Why is this important? Today, I was in a meeting that needed other voices, but due to existing reporting lines, that was not the reality. And as I reflect, I'm seeing so ingrained patriarchal approaches/tactics/deflections used.

A sad realization, I will never know what it's like to be in an all woman meeting; Or perhaps an all marginalized person meeting.
