@mcpaccard super awkward vibe in the room while he's talking… At least people realised on the spot that it was weird. 😐
@loriskumo no one said much though, apart from the woman who defended me. Most of the dudedevbros in the room were unfortunately quite ok with his speech, even if just on the philosophical level, not the way he expressed it.
He comes from Nantes which he found "had a big airport problem" lol (i.e. vanity airport was cancelled after decades of public outrage over destruction of arable land and misuse of public funds).
That he bemoaned the "loss" of NDDL (airport) says a lot about his character.
To be frank he came across as scared shitless fathoming the possibility of collapse.
@mcpaccard i'm having a frustrating day so yes okay let's really put that over the top
@mcpaccard lmao got to :30 where the nerd started talkin about his feelings
@mcpaccard just realized this was your talk, and it's good as heck
@mcpaccard like literally thinking of any of the material underpinnings of anything reveal the endless innovation and growth ideology depends on "we expect a wizard will show up at some point"
@vegetablegremlin YUP. There's some good research about this issue being published right now, unfortunately I can only point out to French content. It points out to our amazing ability to discard our responsibilities, to the philosophical shifts we used to create the concept of "nature" and separate ourselves from it, the mythologies and the social constructs...We are flawed when it comes to understanding and applying ecology.
@vegetablegremlin hahaha, thanks! Yes it is :) first version of it, though. In hindsight, I find it messy and ill-balanced. I am working on new versions (one is available but in French only, sorry!) that are better and more aimed at what we can do as individuals.
I was thinking he was French, I was not mistaken. x)
The way he always interrupt you is really infuriating (nothing new but, yeah...)
J'ai une petite observation/conseil sur la façon dont tu portes ton micro tour-de-cou… tu me permets ?
