Google Hangouts is shutting down in November. Its successor is Google Chat, which is not the same as GChat, which was also known as Google Talk. None of those are the same as Spaces, which is the new name for Rooms. I am not making any of this up. theverge.com/2022/6/27/2318501

Weird how the decision relies on a history of laws passed by many state legislatures that women could not vote for or participate in.

And when they were finally "allowed" to, they often were shut out of actual power.

Just to be clear, providing abortion care just became a crime in Louisiana, punishable by 10-15 years of prison time and $100-$200k in fines.

Last line of the dissent in the Dobbs case: With sorrow—for this Court, but more, for the many millions of American women who have today lost a fundamental constitutional protection—we dissent.

Scene: Longest day of the year, Sunnyvale.

British gastro pub: "oh we can't seat you outside."

Me: "oh are the tables full?"

Them: "no, it's last call so we're shutting down outdoor seating."

It's ***8:40pm***. What is wrong with Silicon Valley???

Still with me? Cool. So, while at IBM, this double illegal immigrant Chinese refugee became a project lead. Which is how he helped invent two bits of tech that maybe you've heard of: The CPU Clock and the Hard Drive. 10/?
