Github 2008-2017: repeatedly makes international news for having an awful culture. Marginalized people are forced out, founders harass and stalk employees they are mad at, pushes meritocracy as a viable power structure, pretty much the poster child of Silicon Valley decadence.
Response: well, no one's perfect
Github 2018: Microsoft acquires Github
Response: now, this place is ruined
Bad idea of the day: Put the 'hyper' modifier key back on the keyboard, but you hold it while typing to create hyperlinks, press it while clicking to open a hyperlink
Taxes, USA bitterness Show more
USA seems obsessed with action when it means opressing vulnerable groups... but is all talk when it comes to helping people.
Even my fam., they say all the right things about values, charity, helping.., but do nothing.
Under capitalism, money is how citizens reveal what they *actually* care about... and Americans can only complain about taxes (mil. spending aside... the one time they give signifigantly to charity/social services).
I cannot wait to leave the US and if I ever see it again, it'll be too soon.
How can a land of so many wonders, have such a completely toxic culture, lacking any coherent values, and be so frustratingly unashamed of it?
So many gifts, yet so ungrateful. Such bounty, squandered by petulent children. Such privilege, used solely for property hoarding.
#Notallmurcans, don't @ me
Stuck in Surprise, AZ (USA) trying to help parents with med. issues and cleanup.
Phoenix, et. al. is a hellhole of peak capitalism. Mom's doctors don't offer her even basic dignity. They spend so much on medical care and rx so little.
As part of the house cleanout, I put out a clearly markes pile for Vietnam Veterans of America. Including a nice rolling toolbox. Some ahole stole it from charity.
Fuck everything about America, but in particular fuck all amoral shitlords (drs and thieves).
YOU: Hey bud, working hard or hardly working? Hahaha
ME: Hardly working, but in the sense that a shattered marionette is hardly working. In so breaking, I have broken away from the normative values that once controlled me; but in the process, my guiding narrative and image have also been deconstructed and scattered; and so in light of this, my animating urge must be rebuilt along some new mode, or I will simply be swept into the garbage
3D Collages encased in glass
This is an amazing art piece that has cut pieces of paper in between plates of glass to create sculptures
I've been told that I made too pink... but to quote Baroness Von Sketch, "of course it's pink, how else would women know it's for them". 😋
Maybe it'll at least act ward off the toxic masculinity crowd.

We Klingons know exactly what to do when someone changes their name and/or pronouns.

Hey fediverse, recommend me a movie that's:
- a heady sci-fi joint
- at least 30 years old
- molasses-slow in pace
- not in English is a bonus
Cloudflare, pessimisism, wtf Show more
I am skeptical.
In a world where the USG can veto that commitment and prevent Cloudflare from discussing it, trusting Cloudflare = trusting the USG, no?
I mean, in some areas of the world, the USG is an upgrade to be sure...
I am not convinced that having another fast, US-based public DNS service is *bad*, per se... but is it good/interesting/promissing/innovative/especially private?

As a US company, the anti-abuse logs will likely land in the US. Even if they delete them after 24hrs. (like they promise), it's possible that they wouldn't be the only org with a copy at that point (by hook or by crook).
Other than that, they haven't been viewed as a 'good citizen' in the view of others in the privacy community. I hesitate to give them the benefit of the doubt on the privacy front.
