Improved Workflows: Achievement Unlocked

Summary: Today we've completed a bunch of small projects that can make us more efficient (e.g. more Daily Links per day, more articles); the above video was recorded many hours ago to accompany the outline below

THE past few days were spent coding a bunch of improvements to site operations, which mostly involve assessing, curating, and sharing news. In the process we occasionally identify areas that merit more coverage if not rebuttal. We're unable to cover everything all the time, partly because we're not experts in every domain and partly because our time and resources are very limited. We're not sponsored by oligarchs and corporations; in over 15 years we've not sold out or compromised our journalistic independence.

Typing: Techrights loves weekendsAll the latest changes (code) can be found in Git and corresponding internal communication can be found in IRC logs.

These past few days were fully utilised to carry out maintenance/system updates, housekeeping chores, and of course coding some stuff that was well overdue; we can only ever compete (the battle over narrative/information) with the "Big Sites" if we're very efficient and are capable of publishing very rapidly (lately we've been posting Daily links thrice a day).

This coming weekend we'll try to relax a bit (news cycles will be dry anyway) and on Monday we'll publish Microsoft GitHub Exposé — Part VIII, focusing on Mr. Graveley's notorious Tomboy project; of course he proceeded from attacking GNU/Linux with Mono to working directly for Microsoft, spearheading the attack on copyleft/GPL. Incidentally, the same people who mobbed Richard Stallman earlier this year are coming to realise, as per today's press statement, that Microsoft is pure evil and Microsoft cannot be redeemed. Yes, even people in the OSI's Board can see it; will they can Microsoft employee who have entered the Board? Because some have indeed resumed the entryism.
