Ethical design isn’t about trying to reform billion-dollar corporations like Google and Facebook that have fundamentally unethical business models, it’s about designing organisations with ethical business models that, therefore, can create ethical products and services.

Looks like no flu vaccination for me this season. :(

Short supply means they're only giving it to the medical risk groups that were previously recommended to get it.

I wrote this in an online meeting at work today, and thought I'd inflict on the fediverse. The topic is striving for excellence.

I've learnt through bitter experience that it's rarely possible to fix
all problems at once. What works, in my experience, is frequent small
improvements. The trick is to have a vision of where one wants to end
up in, and every day find the next step towards that. And it's OK for
the vision to also change. This applies to life as well as software
development.

Upgrading to 2.6.1 soon, hope for a smooth ride!

From freyablekman https://twitter.com/freyablekman on Twitter: I was not at CERN this week, but due to the power of social media (and my brilliant colleague Archana Sharma) I now know CERN has new sugar bags at coffee. They look really great! #scicomm on #sugar https://twitter.com/freyablekman/status/1055840033410826240/photo/1 https://chirp.cooleysekula.net/attachment/52345
