Dear BitBucket, can you please dial down your LGBT celebration. Changing your website logo is one thing.
But adding 20+ lines with ANSI codes to the “git push” output and all without warning is way too much. If you don’t believe me, check #bitbucket hashtag on Twitter, and see how many happy customers you have now.
P.S.: keep in mind that this is a paid service too. WTF?
Gay marriage: the database engineering perspective is a rather old article on how gay marriage (and other types of marriages) can affect technology, but somehow I missed it for all these years.
It’s interesting from a variety of perspectives – technical, social, and cultural. It’s also somewhat tongue in cheek, yet insightful and thought-provoking. Irrelevant of your views on the subject, I recommend this read. Where else will you find 14 database schema designs trying to solve the same problem.
The legal ramifications of what I’m about to describe are unguessable. I have no idea what rights a civil union like the ones which would be possible below would have, nor do I have any idea what kind of transhuman universe would require so complex a system. This is the marriage database schema to take us up to the thirty-first century, people.
If databases are that difficult to adjust, I can’t even imagine the effort needed for humans…
Cyprus Mail reports:
Cyprus first-ever Gay Pride parade will be held in Nicosia on May 31 and it will be part of the 15-day-long Cyprus Pride Festival, according to ACCEPT LGBTI Cyprus head Costas Gavrielides.
Just for the record, I am against the parade. Not against gay people, but against the parade. I am as much against the Straight Pride parade. I don’t think that sexual preferences are a good choice for parading.
As far as the actual rights, laws, and morals go – I do agree with some and do disagree with the other, but, once again, I think there are other ways to work them out.
