The Washington Post's motto is "democracy dies in darkness".

A subscription to the Washington Post's digital edition costs $100 per year.

The Washington Post is owned by Jeff Bezos.

BusinessInsider estimates Jeff Bezos makes $2,489 per second.

The Washington Post reports 86.6 million unique visitors.

Jeff Bezos makes enough money in a little over than 40 days to buy every single one of those 86.6 million people a subscription.

So it's clearly not lack of money that causes the Washington Post to have a paywall.

Which means there's only one possible reason for their tagline to be "democracy dies in darkness".

It's not a foreboding warning. It's their mission statement.

I don't understand why GitLab is doing these things. Even on behalf of Sourcehut, there are subsets that I don't really try to compete with GitLab on. They have a place in this ecosystem and they're working to undermine it. They're making a void that I, even as a competitor, don't want to and am not prepared to fill. The community is going to suffer for their missteps.

I feel really bad for their employees. If I could help, I would, but Sourcehut isn't big enough to provide a fallback for them. To any GitLab employees who know something I can do to help, or just want to talk, I can lend a sympathetic and private ear at sir@cmpwn.com.

Yes, it will be tremendously expensive to apply heavy trade sactions to China. But it was also tremendously expensive to liberate the slaves from the US south. Money never excuses moral failure.

thinking about going back in time and telling child Maddie that in the future we find out that dinosaurs used to have feathers. i would also probably mention to her that she's a girl but i mostly want to see how she reacts to the feathers thing

Weird how most "crimes against humanity" are crimes with a finite number of victims, but crimes like fossil fuel profiteering or the destruction of the rainforest, where humanity itself is the victim, aren't actually crimes at all

@sir do you see the blog as something that there is only one of per instance of sr.ht (or only on sourcehut.org) or are you envisioning a blogs.sr.ht where anyone can set up a blog?
