"It didn't occur to us it would create any offence to our Welsh speaking staff."

Who would have thought a ban on using Welsh, in Wales, would cause offence?

I think if we're serious about reclaiming the tools of the information age into a paradigm that remains human we have to take up the challenge of #SmallTech
I hope to see similar trends over here.

Some good news for your Friday! 🎉🎉

📢 Important PSA:

Trans rights are Human Rights.
Non-binary folks, no matter if they're trans or not, or how they present, are valid and their rights are Human Rights.

So Tesla designed a phenomonally awful-looking pickup truck called the Cybertruck.

I think this was a good move. Anyone who lives in an urban environment and wants to drive a pickup is already demonstrating terrible, ostentatious taste and will probably _love_ the Cybertruck's garish look.

And anyone who lives in a rural area and actually needs a pickup truck will not buy a Tesla truck anyway due to lack of access to charging stations.

Valve aren't giving us Half Life 3 but instead Half Life 1.5, which is only half of 3 meaning it probably was going to be 3 but it decayed due to being on the shelf so long

Yep, that’s Amnesty International saying that.
