Shout out to that time Elon musk got twitter to suspend every account with his name in them because of shit like this

Normalize talking about how much you're paid with your co-workers.

It is the only way people will truly realize the income disparity between themselves and their just-as-qualified queer and/or BIPoC friends and colleagues.

This should be normal in ever industry. The fact it isn't is actively aiding executives in systemically discriminating against minority groups.

Why call it Mypy when you could have called it Typhon instead? 🤔

You ever thought about how ridiculous the names of our tech overlords are?

I wonder if we'd also get used to talking about Dingdong and Tableleg being the overlords of the internet instead of Google and Facebook.

My fellow Americans, would you like to know which way to the Bastille?

BBC propaganda 

BBC Radio 4 is really pushing gov 'back to work' agenda today.

The only two commenters on were talking how this was temporary, sandwich workers losing their jobs, how staff are important but companies will figure out how to bring them back into the office, and of course the spectre of "offshoring".

They tend followed up with the Brittania song bullshit.

I’ve been programming 20 odd years. Languages and fashion changes; but comments?

The Mozilla layoffs really suck, my sympathies to all those laid off and the survivors as well =(

"We are proud to announce that Google Kitchen Tools will no longer be available on Sep 1st 2020, nor has it ever been available. Should you wish to export your Google Kitchen Tools data, you should be aware that there is no data, as Google Kitchen Tools has never existed.

Thanks,
The Google Kitchen Tools Team"

How to distract yourself from checking work emails and everything else while taking holidays: start playing FF XIV 😬

mass effect's "government ignores an incoming threat and is unprepared when it arrives" hits a little differently now

I have this weird state of affairs where I have so much shit to do and have had so much shit to do for so long that it (1) takes a long time to finish anything and (2) finished things are immediately replaced by new tasks. There's a constant flow of tasks being concieved and completed and the two kinds are separated by weirdly large gulfs of time. I also context switch A LOT, working on as many as two or three dozen tasks per week of which maybe 2 will be completed during that timeframe

This workflow makes me highly aware of the unrelenting flow of time

Any police officer who quits in solidarity with a colleague who put an innocent person in the hospital is a police officer we're better off without.
