Software Freedom Conservancy needs you to join as a supporter to support Conservancy’s basic operations and to save GPL compliance efforts. Please, join today!
Everybody is invited to join an informal meeting tomorrow/today Tuesday 2015/11/10 at 18h UTC.
This week some people are available but it seems some other not, so we'll do a casual meeting for commenting on the aspects that we have advanced until now about Community Governance, and maybe hack together in our pending stuff.
The meeting will take place in IRC: chat.freenode.net server, #pump.io channel.
It can also be followed by XMPP in the MUC firstname.lastname@example.org and by web access.
The meeting will be logged and it will REDACT the nicks of the persons asking for it; log/outcomes will be posted here and in the meeting wiki page.
Have a look at our Community wiki page for further info.
We hope you can join us! But if you cannot make it, don't worry, next week you have another opportunity :)
The logs of the meeting are available at:

If you start a technical talk with the sentence that the technology you working on "changes the way we're all thinking about computing", then you are (a) believing your own hype and (b) shouldn't be believed or trusted as a technical expert.
Very little has changed fundamentally about computing in many decades. The details change, platforms change, but there are two ways to do computing: you do it on a machine in front of you or you do it on a machine on some network, and you have connections between the two.
The rest is details. Yes, we've invented ways to do the details better, or worse, as the case may be.

In the USA, Perl 5 is officially, as of today, the legal age to consume alcoholic beverages. (Today is the anniversary of Perl version 5's release, not the anniversary of the Perl language itself).
I must admit that I both (a) have scripts that were written for Perl 4 in personal production (i.e., I'm the the only user), and (b) that I still code most in Perl 5 more than any other language (not that I write much code anymore, sadly).
Perl 6 will be released officially this year. Obviously it won't have the success that Perl 5 had in its heyday. (cf my blog post for the 25th birthday of Perl itself: http://ebb.org/bkuhn/blog/2012/12/18/perl-cobol.html ).
The TIOBE index still gives Java at the top, followed by C, C++, C# and Python.
I don't know if they count Android programming as Java or if its popularity is only motivated by the fact that AFAIK it's still the default language inside big corporatey environments. Cobol is 21st :)

Por cierto, desde Firefox con Privacy badger bloquea las imágenes porque están en blogspot y rastrean.
Lo cuál me parece perfecto, pero incide en la reflexión sobre el desconocimiento de los medios y sus consecuencias por parte de colectivos y movimientos sociales.
