Don't cross the picket line. No Pepsi, no doritos until worker demands are met
I think I've never been more forcibly struck than today with the realisation that today's Web developers have never used 1980s BASIC systems and just have no awareness that computers used to be things you could both use and program interactively, in the same session.
We've deprived an entire couple generations of children of a basic formative mind-expanding experience of cognitive freedom, and now they're making tools that restrict other people's thought lives and see nothing wrong with that.
US Politics, twutter
Been good to watch the fever break now that Trump is gone
'Tucker Carlson tonight, mocking Biden for saying the January 6 insurrection was worst attack on our country since Civil War: "Really? The worst attack on our democracy in 160 years? How about the Immigration Act of 1965?"'
"Last April, detainees also held a peaceful protest, stemming from the center not providing sufficient personal protective equipment to avoid the spread of Covid-19, according to the report. The facility responded by deploying chemical agents from the ceiling"

So glad everything is all better now that Trump's out
Pui Pui Molcar is a very silly, very cute stop-motion cartoon about guinea pig cars: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1fNMnlicr0&list=PL643TeiRe4uFEVDuknHEgK_9nTSsQpAQT
Each episode is only about two and a half minutes long; you can watch all the Pui Pui Molcar released so far in under 20 minutes. And there's no dialogue, so you don't have to worry about translation. :)
Potentially great news. It's a single trial with mice, but still

cnpol, xinjiang, mass surveillance
"Xinjiang really shows how privacy is a gateway right, where if you have no privacy, that’s where you see that you have no freedoms as a human being at all. You don’t have the right to practice your religion, you don’t have the right to be who you are, you don’t even have the right to think your own thoughts because your thoughts are being parsed out by these incessant visits and incessantly monitored by surveillance systems, whether they’re human or artificial, and evaluated constantly for your level of loyalty to the government."

Looking forward to the extremely ethical next 4 years
"within months of retiring from the Pentagon, Austin joined the board of weapons maker Raytheon, a company that makes bombs that the Saudis are using to inflict tremendous death and suffering on the people of Yemen ...
