    Le syndicalisme de combat doit retrouver ses lettres de noblesse


    “Je vous parlais ces dernières semaines du rôle important joué par des syndicats français, grecs et biélorusses dans la lutte contre la guerre et le militarisme mondial. Que ce soit en refusant de charger des armes françaises à destination de l’Arabie Saoudite ou en bloquant les chemins de fer utilisés pour acheminer des convois d’armes vers le front russe ou les positions de l’OTAN en Europe de l’Est, on a là une inspirante impression de déjà-vu qui nous ramène à l’âge d’or de luttes ouvrières qui transcendent les revendications propres à leur condition.”

    “C’est dans cet esprit que j’ai commencé cette semaine la lecture de « Wobblies du monde entier, une histoire globale de l’Industrial Workers of the World » paru l’an dernier aux Éditions de la rue Dorion. Un ouvrage fort à-propos qui rappelle que par son caractère combatif et ses élans de solidarité ouvrière internationale, le mouvement des wobblies (qui comptent aujourd’hui plus de 10 000 membres) s’est trouvé au cœur des mouvements de lutte contre le racisme, l’impérialisme, le sexisme, l’homophobie et dans la lutte climatique, par exemple. Vous ne serez donc pas surpris d’apprendre que le syndicat a été la victime d’un gigantesque effort de répression lors de l’entrée en guerre des États-Unis durant le premier conflit mondial en 1917, les puissants craignant un vaste mouvement de grèves qui perturberait l’effort de guerre industriel.”


    J'ai commandé le livre dont il parle dans l'article. Bien hâte de le lire. J'avais entendu parler du Industrial Workers of the World, mais je ne connaissais pas le terme Wobblies.

    BBS the Documentary


    “Poster of the BBS The Documentary”

    “The BBS (bulletin board system) scene of the 80s and 90s was a magical time. Long before the Internet escaped from the lab, connected the planet and redefined what it meant to use a computer there was a brave and pioneering band of computer users who spent their time, money and sanity setting up their home computers and phone lines to welcome anyone who called.”

    A reality where html never existed


    “Is a world without html truly better?”

    “I honestly don’t know if a world without HTML, HTTP, and its attendant ills (social media, centralization, adtech, the monetization of human attention) would truly be better. Perhaps the founders of Google would have built a better version of Archie (FTP search) and Veronica (Gopher search), we'd still have SEO, and the internet would still be the sort of cyberpunk dystopia too dull to be worth the efforts of William Gibson, George Alec Effinger, and Neal Stephenson to depict in fiction.”

    Basic HTML Competency Is the New Punk Folk Explosion!


    “In my head, there was a clear connection between the diy punk movement of the 80’s and the folk revival of the 60’s and 70’s. Punk culture was all about doing things yourself, which meant you had to learn how things were done in the first place.”


    “I know it feels premature to say that basic HTML competency is a type of folk craft, but I'm not sure what else to call it.”

    “How does something become a folk tradition? Is it the age of the practice, or how many (or few) people practice it? Folk revivalists in the 60’s were idolizing artists from the depression era, which happened just 30 years prior. The world wide web is nearly 30 years old, and the internet itself over 60. There are people leading internet companies today who are far younger than the web, who never knew a world without the internet. If a teen is drawn to early web aesthetics, it is not out of a nostalgia for their youth. It is, instead, a yearning for a time from before they even existed, a time they can only imagine.”


    “I want our personalities to come through not just in the words or links we share, but in the URLS we use and the code we write. I dream of regional communities forming online, based around organically grown web rings, and for idiosyncrasies to form in the aesthetics of our sites based on the communities we learned to code from. Basically, to bring back all the things that made the early internet so exciting and open and welcoming. It’s a little bit harder, but that’s part of the charm.”

    pine needles


    “somewhere in the world where the coffee isn’t bitter and the rivers run to oceans made of water, not of waste

    there exists a girl who acts odd and peculiar who smokes a pinecone pipe and drinks pine needle tea

    i talked to her one day when i walked through the forest and she told me everything that i should have always known"

    “There is still no law mandating private web sites are accessible (although there is one for the public sector, but it’s still pretty new).”

    “I find this completely unacceptable. I think it’s a disgrace that it’s still up for debate whether someone who is visually impaired, or someone who can’t hear, or someone who can’t use a mouse, can be excluded from using some service even though there would be perfectly good ways for them to use those things if people made a bit of an effort. Worse, sometimes it’s more a case of people ruining perfectly good accessibility that’s built into things already, simply out of ignorance.”


    “I think we as an industry have a resonsibility here, a responsibility to refuse to build things that exclude people. And of course “the industry” here is just a placeholder: I think it should be each individual’s responsibility to care about those aspects, and to refuse to build inaccessible things if they’re asked to do so.”

    3 Ways We Fail to Take Accessibility Seriously


    “Now, imagine that an accessibility subject-matter expert comes along and essentially tells you that not only are you not particularly smart, but you have been doing things wrong for a long time.”


    “The thing is, these users have been ignored for so long that it can feel like they are screaming into a void. Isn’t anyone listening? Doesn’t anyone care? It seems like the only way to even be acknowledged is to demand the treatment that the law affords them! Even then, they often feel ignored and forgotten. Are lawsuits the only recourse?”


    “Web designers have a higher challenge—their artistic vision needs to be usable by everyone. Challenge yourself to move the conversation into a different space: you just haven’t found the right design yet. It’s a false choice to think that a design can either be beautiful or accessible; don’t fall into that trap.”


    “We need to acknowledge that designers and developers need to be learning about accessibility much sooner in their careers. I think of it with this analogy: Imagine you’ve learned a foreign language, but you only learned that language’s slang. Your words are technically correct, but there are a lot of native speakers of that language who will never be able to understand you. JavaScript-first web developers are often technically correct from a JavaScript perspective, but they also frequently create solutions that leave out a whole lotta people in the end.”


    “The thing is, we can only start to be compassionate toward other people once we are able to be compassionate toward ourselves. Sure, we messed up—but we don’t have to stay ignorant.”


    “Here’s the cool part: not only do we have the technology, we are literally the ones that can fix it. We can get up and try to do better tomorrow. We can make some time to read about accessibility, and keep reading about it every day until we know it just as well as we do other things.”
