Mastodon: como navegar nessa nova rede social https://medium.com/@renatolond/mastodon-como-navegar-nessa-nova-rede-social-b7d2a67ec411
I watch a considerable amount of tv shows, I like video games (though I don't play that often anymore) and I try to read books as often as possible.
I'm really interested in urban mobility in general and I'm always riding my bike when possible.
I speak english, portuguese and french, though this last one is still a WIP and it's sometimes hard for me to organize my thoughts in it.
Well, I've had made an #introduction in mastodon.xyz before, but I want this pinned, so:
My name is Renato, but I prefer to be called by Lond. It's a nickname born out of IRC.
I'm from Rio de Janeiro, but I've been living in Brussels for a year and a half now.
I'm a software developer, I have some tattoos, one piercing, some earrings and my hair has been assuming very different colors for the last 3 years-ish.

J'habite près de Namur en Belgique et je suis actuellement ingénieure réseau dans un FAI Belge. J'ai aussi de l'expérience en devops et pas mal adminsys (Linux et openBSD).
J'ai aussi fait beaucoup de dev (JAVA, Python, C++) à la fac et j'envisage, pourquoi pas, de me réorienter pour en faire plus dans ma vie pro si on m'en donne l'opportunité. C'est un des projet de carrière qui reste dans un coin de ma tête.
Je cherche des missions freelance, ou alors un poste en full remote si c'est loin de la Belgique, en réseaux devops ou dev (junior). À discuter, je suis ouverte à tout.
that's just phrenology. you invented fucking phrenology again https://twitter.com/charleshymas/status/1177842254192549888
I think that one of the most harmful myths around computers is the one saying that you have to be smart to program one. It scares a lot of great people, and attracts a lot of people who are not so great, and only come for the bragging rights.
Using (including programming) computers does not require above-average intelligence. Most programmers I've met are in fact incredibly stupid most of the time. And it's fine, it all works somehow.
What RMS, Torvalds and the like cost us
For every gross dude you tolerate, there's almost certainly several people who are pushed out of that space you created for him
The more influential the gross dude, the more people will emulate him and help to push out even more people
And it's mostly women who get pushed out
So for the likes of RMS and Torvalds, the damage they have done to the field of Computer Science may be incalculable
One extra point is the community around it. It's a cooperative, which means decisions are taken in general meetings, that happen every three months give or take, with discussions and collective decision taking methods. There are several committees for different subjects at all times.
It (can be) a very social activity, since you get to know people during shifts, and then take part in committees and whatnot :)
because we have access to things in bulk, we've started trying to reuse more containers, using fabric bags instead of plastic ones. We've started refilling out bottles of olive oil and regular oil. We've started refilling our hand and shower soap.
I've started paying more attention to stuff I consume that does not come from there, checking why it is not available there and then thinking if there's a way to replace it.
Our use of random plastic containers that came with all grocery stuff(...)
It's been some months now since we've became part of our local #coop supermarket, bees coop. We've started around March, and it makes me very happy that we did.
It's very cool because I've had one thing in mind when I started looking for it, an alternative take on grocery shopping, without a big conglomerate behind it, one that tries to respect its workers and the producers, locally sourcing where possible.
But being there, other things started to happen naturally (...)

Depois da primeira aula, comecei a tentar praticar todo dia e parece que o meu cérebro desenterrou algum conhecimento que tava no fundo da minha mente, lembrei uns acordes que tinha aprendido há eras e tal
A segunda aula foi bem divertida 🎶
Vamo que vamo.
Se vocês souberem outra música além de que país é esse que tem três acordes e uma levada suave, só falar xD
