26 people own the same wealth as half the population of Earth. Those few people could all fit on one bus. If they were students it would be equivalent to one classroom.

I've just learned about Grete Hermann, a German mathematician and philosopher, and student of Emmy Noether. She was an anti-fascist, and provided a sort-of constructive solution to Hilbert's Nullstellensatz.

non-programmers are an important part of open source projects. non-programmer contributions are valid and useful and not second tier or otherwise less valuable.

it's easy to say programmers are the only value-add when you're fortunate enough to have enough non-programmers that you can take them for granted.

if you take away the feature requests, translations, and general chatter - many OSS projects would have never been more than flawed, narrow use case tech demos.

Want to use a link shortener on #Mastodon?

Don't! :blobsurprised: All links in Mastodon posts count for 23 characters, no matter how long they really are.

installing programs on windows is a dream! simply google the name of the program you want to install, find the link that looks like it's the real one, download the provided .exe file, deselect the bing toolbar, deselect the MSN homepage thing, deselect PC Pro Cleaner Xtreme, scroll to the bottom of the EULA and click "agree", close the old version you had running that causes abort/retry/ignore permission error prompts to appear, uncheck "add to start menu" and "create an icon on my desktop" and "automatically launch at startup", close the prompt for the newsletter, and you're done!

Looking in the Mathematics Genealogy Project [1], I discovered that my advisors had links with Euler :euler:, Lagrange, Laplace, Poisson 🐟, Baire, Jordan, Hermite, and a lot of other great names...

If I ever graduate I'll be a disgrace to them 😆.

Happy birthday! 🎉

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.
