It says "gatekeeping social justice by vilifying those who are willing to learn isn't only totally unproductive but also reveals
to everyone that your interest in social politics is merely an act and you actually care very little about tangible solutions towards making the world a better place"

Did you know? There are standards on color contrast accessibility for background:foreground colors (e.g. on websites). If you look at/redesign your website, take the time to drop your background and text colors in this handy tool to see if your color choices are suitable: contrast-ratio.com/#%23DF691A-

Hey, nerds! I work at an alternative school in Holyoke, MA, where 31% of people live below the poverty line. I teach electronics & other technical art to mostly minority, mostly poor kids.

Can you get my students some tools & materials?

So hi! Could folks who are making jokes about Mark Zuckerberg please be aware that comparing him to a robot can be hurtful because

a) if he is autistic you are repeating the same tired old jokes about autistic people having no emotions just because you can't read our facial expressions, and

b) if he is not autistic then you are still doing that, and reminding autistic people of jokes people make about how we're evil/heartless - and at the same time you're comparing us to Mark Zuckerberg. Rude.

Yeah, I would want to contribute to something like this.

But I'm opposed to buid something in php - it's a childhood trauma - I'd go for either node or rails for that. And I figured I'm not very good at frontend layouts. So there is that.
