@nolski:matrix.orgnolskiI feel like facebook would make the most sense for who to deplatform next if that's what we're doing as there is the most amount of evidence of them causing direct harm.11:25:07
@freenode_tg-ritfoss:matrix.orgtg-ritfoss <a​ggressive_popcorn> Right now, Jekyll. We’ve had tons of ideas for other stuff in future though if we need other things like a backend 12:48:03
@axk4545:matrix.orgaxk4545Silly question. Do we still need to be authenticating to NickServ at this point if we connect via Matrix?14:08:06

I think matrix takes care of that for you

Good question! So SJ is teaching the course this semester and the curriculum has been switched away from the OLPC stuff. I'm not sure the exact location of all of the course materials right now.
14:45:23
@nolski:matrix.orgnolskiI know there was some stuff with RIT and covid that required courses refrain from using any non-rit approved learning software so I don't think ofcourse is being used this time around.14:46:04
@nolski:matrix.orgnolskiWe will however be centralizing all of our course materials over the next semester or two within our Open@RIT infrastructure so stay tuned. It will all be accessible through our website and hosted on IEEE's gitlab instance but we just haven't gotten there yet.14:46:54
@freenode_dzho:matrix.orgdzhohey hey hey folks this is amazing:15:06:10
@freenode_dzho:matrix.orgdzhohttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onion_Futures_Act15:06:15
@freenode_dzho:matrix.orgdzho I was just going to make a joke about onion futures having been outlawed in the '50s, which is a true thing, but I went to look it up. 15:06:39
@freenode_dzho:matrix.orgdzho and lo and behold I think I found that previous decade's counterpart to the Sony Bono Copyright Term Extension Act 15:07:31
@freenode_dzho:matrix.orgdzhoie, when huge political noise is happening but legislation still manages to get passed, the content industry sees their chance and some wild stuff happens15:08:22
@freenode_dzho:matrix.orgdzho tl;dr "The law was amended in 2010 to add motion picture box office futures to the list of banned futures contracts, in response to lobbying efforts by the Motion Picture Association of America." 15:10:55
@freenode_dzho:matrix.orgdzhoso there are only two types of futures contracts that have been banned by federal law in the US: onions, and box office receipts15:11:24
@freenode_tg-ritfoss:matrix.orgtg-ritfoss <j​wflory> @aggressive_popcorn Jekyll is solid 👍🏻 15:25:42
@freenode_tg-ritfoss:matrix.orgtg-ritfoss <j​wflory> axk4545: Yes. You need to authenticate with NickServ for the best experience using Matrix with IRC channels. No, Matrix does not handle it for you by default unless you configure it to do so 15:26:20
@freenode_tg-ritfoss:matrix.orgtg-ritfoss <a​ggressive_popcorn> yep, love the free github pages hosting too!. with zoho offering free multi-user domain email, we basically have all the stuff set up for the cost of the domain name 15:27:41
@nolski:matrix.orgnolski@jwflory++ :) sorry for the misinformation15:45:02
@nolski:matrix.orgnolskiI may have configured riot to do it for me ages ago15:45:10
