Why We’re Capitalizing Black


The Times has changed its style on the term’s usage to better reflect a shared cultural identity. Here’s what led to that decision.
... “It seems like such a minor change, black versus Black,” The Times’s National editor, Marc Lacey, said. “But for many people the capitalization of that one letter is the difference between a color and a culture.” ...

Computer History Museum. The Earliest Unix Code

Dennis Ritchie, an ordinary W.A.S.P.

What is it that runs the servers that hold our online world, be it the web or the cloud? What enables the mobile apps that are at the center of increasingly on-demand lives in the developed world and of mobile banking and messaging in the developing world? The answer is the operating system Unix and its many descendants: Linux, Android, BSD Unix, MacOS, iOS—the list goes on and on. Want to glimpse the Unix in your Mac? Open a Terminal window and enter “man roff” to view the Unix manual entry for an early text formatting program that lives within your operating system.

Dennis Ritchie, an ordinary W.A.S.P.

He didn't crash any monuments or police cars. He was not a sjw moron, 'green' freak, 'meeetooo activist', anarchist, 'netizan' or coloured 'freedom fighter', etc. ... But he was the FATHER OF UNIX and C language.

OF LANGUAGE, GEMATRIA, and SYNTHESIS


Mathematics is a language. A language, that for as much as any individual may hope to do so, demands to "say what you mean" divorced of emotional driven poetic abstracts.
Phonetic and otherwise written languages of "word", counter to the language of math, concern themselves first and foremost with abstract poetics. The definition of every word in and of itself to be found in nothing but more words and never anything concrete.

Gematria, which ascribes numerical values to correspondence with the written word and subsequently also phonetics is both a language of (more precise) "meaning" and abstract poetics. Of synthesis, the idea of any meaningful gematria existing to unite these seeming polar opposites is in itself impressive. The fact that numerous gematria language systems stand in existence, notably in any sort of meaningful "large scale" use and modularity, may be consid... Show more...

Offensive Words We Should Uproot and Eliminate From Technology http://techrights.org/2020/06/16/offensive-words/ #tolerance #english #technology #terminopoly #language

One thing I don't get (actually it was hard not no use much stronger words here) about all this #BlackLivesMatter business are "dictionary wars", especially when it comes to technical terms. Just a couple of examples (there are many more):

\* Google Chrome team moving away from the words ‘blacklist’ and ‘whitelist’ to be more inclusive
\* Consider renaming master branch to something less offensive

This is simply stupid and what is especially fucked up about this - these terms aren't even related to racism or other prejudices of the past or present. Blacklist and whitelist historically have nothing to do with race or color. Master in this case comes from "master copy", i.e. some central model which is used to create subsequent copies....

Meta meta meta meta meta

“… the importance of the communicative context in the negotiation of the conditions through which truth is constructed, …”
A quotation from a fascinating study by Marco Jacquemet, Credibility in court – Communicative practices in the Camorra trials (1996). It’s in a paragraph on ‘Metapragmatics in court’ that the author formulates this sentence on truth.

‘The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth’? That’s the basis of legal oats in about all western judicial systems.

Jacquemet’s study shows how truth is constructed, through conditions, that are being negotiated, in a specific communicative context, which has his own importance.

I like that.
