    If I ever have to use this in conversation, you bet I’m going to pronounce it “Lah tinks”.

  2. WordPress

    All-women Release Squad” by Josepha Hayden, Executive Director of WordPress.

    The primary goal of any release cycle is to ship a stable and enhanced version of the WordPress CMS, but for the past year or so we’ve also been sharing the procedural work with a team of people. I affectionately refer to them as the release squad.

    My hope is that with a release squad comprised entirely of people who identify as women, we’ll be able to increase the number women who have that experience and (hopefully) become returning contributors to Core and elsewhere. This doesn’t mean the release will only contain contributions from women. And if our current squad training process is any indication, it also doesn’t mean that we’re asking a squad to show up and do this without support.

    Because identity (or “identification”) is more important than competence.

    The graphic is hilarious. It’s almost too close to reality; I had to look twice. “Treespirit” and “Durkadurka” are my favorites. One quibble: I don’t think of Chads as coders.

  4. Suddenly I recall the Masterpiece Theater production from way back, about a DeLacey family that survives Charles I and Cromwell. Charles II comes back. Everybody has to approach the throne and get on their knees to acknowledge and give fealty to the new regime/restored royalty. One by one, they fall into line. You watch them do it.

    A lot of them took more time about it than do our big corporations in this iteration.

    It’s not just corporations bending the knee and prostrating themselves. Recall that GoodWhites were groveling too, even many so-called conservatives. It would be funny if it weren’t so cringe-inducing.

  6. Let’s face it folks. If the Chi Coms succeed in putting their Puppet Beijing Biden in the White House it will be Apocalypse Now. Civil War in USA. I hope it will not happen of course.
