Wow we finally played a game of Secret Hitler on stream!
I hope it was entertaining to watch and also an excuse to think more about the nature of some conflicts that can arise when pushing forward an open source project.
I will work to setup a system to organize more of these games to give everyone a chance to experience being called names when you were just a normal liberal all along.
As a side note, summer is coming to my hemisphere and we are all sprinting towards the end of the covid lockdown, which means that we’ll soon have to talk about Zig meetups. I’ll write more on the subject soon (tm) but, if you’re reading this message, chances are that you are the best person to run a meetup in your area. Start thinking about it :^)
Tech, Taste and Soul
With Andreas Kling
Andreas is the creator of SerenityOS, an open source operative system for power users that features a consistent visual design inspired by old school Windows (from before the plasticky look of XP), a POSIX-compliant API, and a cohesive development process that is fundamentally different from what Linux has made us almost take for granted. Andreas is also an ex-Apple engineer and he seems to agree that Big Tech has been unable to produce software you can love as of late, so in this interview we’re going to discuss tech using the only two metrics that really matter at the end of the day: taste and soul.
Here’s a recap of the talks in the last episode, in case you missed it.

Let’s recap what’s new in this release and have Andrew answer some questions!
A Secret After-party Game (YouTube Link)
By Loris Cro
It’s finally happening. I blogged about it, annoyed various members of the community about it, ruined a couple friendships over it, and it’s finally coming to the show.
See you at showtime,
