Projects, Conflicts and Emotions

Thu, 19 Nov 2015 12:09:59 +0000

The Debian Project includes many people, groups and teams with different goals, priorities and ways of doing things. Diversity is a good thing, and the results of the continuous interaction, cooperation and competition among different points of view and components make up a successful developing framework both in Debian and in other Free / Libre [...]

Thick Skin (within Free/Open Source communities)

Fri, 09 Oct 2015 18:06:08 +0000

The definition of “thick-skinned” in different dictionaries ranges from “not easily offended” to “largely unaffected by the needs and feelings of other people; insensitive”, going through “able to ignore personal criticism”, “ability to withstand criticism and show no signs of any criticism you may receive getting to you”, “an insensitive nature” or “impervious to criticism”.

SuperTuxKart 0.9: The other side of the story

Tue, 05 May 2015 23:15:44 +0000

I approached the SuperTuxKart community fearing some backslash due to last week’s discussion about their release 0.9, to find instead a nice, friendly and welcoming community. I have already had some very nice talks with them since then, and they have patiently explained to me the sequence of events that led to the situation that [...]

Sexualized depiction of women in SuperTuxKart 0.9

Fri, 01 May 2015 10:59:07 +0000

It has been recently discussed in Debian-Women and Debian-Games mailing lists, but for all of you who don’t read those mailing lists and might have kids or use free games with kids in the classroom, or stuff like that, I thought it might be good to talk about it here. SuperTuxKart is a free 3D [...]

Falling Trees, by Robert Fulghum

Sun, 07 Dec 2014 20:35:05 +0000

In the Solomon Islands in the south Pacific some villagers practice a unique form of logging. If a tree is too large to be felled with an ax, the natives cut it down by yelling at it. (Can’t lay my hands on the article, but I swear I read it.) Woodsmen with special powers creep [...]

Awesome Bullying Lesson

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 21:36:41 +0000

A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stamp on it and really mess it up but do not rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, [...]

Video game players and Gamers are different things

Sat, 25 Oct 2014 20:41:40 +0000

Even though the Wikipedia defines “gamer” as “someone who partakes in interactive gaming, such as (predominantly) video games or board games”, this doesn’t really gets close to that term means socially at the moment. Going back to Wikipedia, we find that the video game subculture is “a form of new media subculture that has been [...]

Löve is a changing project

Sat, 18 Jan 2014 22:22:54 +0000

    I have just uploaded a newer version of Löve to Debian, 0.9.0. As usual, this version breaks compatibility with the API of previous versions. Literally: “LÖVE 0.9.0 breaks compatibility with nearly every 0.8.0 game“. It’s a hard to fix situation from a package maintainer’s point of view, at least until they agree on [...]

Pink Pony: a 3D multiplayer Tron-like racing game, with ponies

Fri, 13 Sep 2013 21:28:05 +0000

The first time I found this cute game, was around 2009, but for a bunch of reasons I haven’t been able to get it into the archive until now. Pink Pony is a cute game in which you have to control a pink pony who’s main goal is to last in the game more time [...]

pySioGame: Educational activities and games for kids

Tue, 03 Sep 2013 00:19:31 +0000

I discovered pySioGame for the first time in the first half of 2012, and even though it was still in a beta state, I liked it a lot. pySioGame is essentially a set of educational activities and games for kids. pySioGame was initially developed by its author -Ireneusz Imiolek- for his son, but he soon [...]
