We shouldn't romanticise pulp sleaze: a lot of it was exploitative, unpleasant and unreadable. But publishers like Aday and Maxey fought against censorship and kicked open a door for others to go through. They paid a high price for doing so.

For today's #FridayFeeling I head back to the era of censorship, to see how pulp paperbacks tried to support gay and lesbian readers in the 1950s and '60s.

This is the story of Saber Books...

J'avais déjà partagé ca mais je repartage parce que je trouve ça génial : ya des meufs qui font de la recherche sur le genre dans le design. Un de leur projet a été d'inverser les normes de genre dans des objets courants : une perceuse et un mixeur. Donc voilà le Mega Hurricane Mixer qui reprend des normes masculines (noir et vert, mécanismes visibles, commandes complexes) pour un objet en général considéré féminin

I would totally buy this, but the 5.65-inch display makes me hesitate!

It seems impossible these days to find a decently recent Android within 4.8-inch displays... Anything bigger is just not as comfortable - look at this picture, this person can barely reach the middle of the screen; and no one is holding a phone like that for use.

@Fairphone I wish you success, and hope that next time we'll have smaller options.

Quelqu'un a des infos la dessus, des détails ou une source ?

Why is software created using taxpayers’ money not released as Free Software?

* Tax savings: Similar applications don't have to be programmed from scratch every time.

* Collaboration: Major projects can share expertise and costs.

* Serving the public: Applications paid by the public should be available for everyone.

* Fostering innovation: With transparent processes, others don't have to reinvent the wheel.
