Aren't you tired from writing your Rust programs in English? Would you like to try something different, exotic and funny? Do you like saying "merde" a lot?
Here's my contribution to solve this problem: Rouille, a French Rust programming language.
I have a feature in this month’s Physics World on the role of free-and-open-source software in physics research.
Do read it and let me know what you think!
This came in the mail yesterday and ooooh boy! 🔥 What a record, what a quartet.
Reading “The Computer Boys Take Over” — currently the part covering HR practices in the 1950s and 1960s — and it’s insane how little has changed in our industry during the past 50+ years.
I guess I should get used to the feeling, I have a hunch that it’ll be a common recurrence throughout the rest of the book.

There are any number of demo sites where you can type LaTeX math and get mathjax to format it for you in your web browser window, but https://muboard.net/ looks like a good choice for sharing your screen when conferencing, office hours, etc: markdown for the non-math formatting, set up to look like a blackboard, with no unnecessary distractions, free to copy or modify.

…It’s also victim blaming to tell everyday people they’re at fault for using one of the two main tech platforms instead of an (as of yet inaccessible) alternative. (I have two Pinephones and my room overflows open hardware. No, I don’t blame you for using an iPhone or an Android device. You’re the victim here.)
Blame the actual culprits: clueless legislators/policymakers who allow these monopolies to continue and fail to protect our human rights. Blame Big Tech and those who enable it…
My interests, in no particular order: physics, programming (esp. API design), music (esp. weird), left-leaning politics.
