Pretty soon we're going to have #gnulinux phones available, small handheld Linux computers!
@WearsManyHats it’s been an intense last 3 years with Brexit politics so I can’t blame you.
Your smartphone broadcasts your exact location thousands of times per day to dozens of different companies. Each has the power to follow individuals wherever they go, in near-real time.
That’s not a glitch in the system. It is the system.
This is not only fucking outrageous, it sets an incredibly dangerous precedent. How can US #PharmaTech possibly be trusted if it thinks it can have exclusive rights over (i.e. 'own') your health data?
@WearsManyHats Tell me about it, it's getting harder and harder to read the news everyday... AAAARRRGH!! So frustrating.

@WearsManyHats You and me! I listen to quite a few episodes of Radio 4 in Pocket casts.
@bjarni That sounds very interesting, I guess the replacement of the processed sugar it's very clever. Thanks for the tip :)
@purism Glad to see that more mainstream channels are picking up on you guys, I'm very close to ditch my Mac for one of these, just saving a little! Are you guys doing any Black Friday deals? :-)
"Why every design system needs a service designer" a design system is not just a bunch of components in Sketch and maybe some HTML/CSS, it's so much more and having a service designer in the team helps a lot https://amyhupe.co.uk/articles/why-every-design-system-needs-a-service-designer/
@angristan I Literally can't wait now to see what the release 5.1 would be like! Very intrigued :-)
