There's a lot to read in this particular EO. Right to repair is one thing, and is extremely welcome given that flagship phones now regularly feature at $700+ dollars, but the potential restoration of net neutrality rules (pending how the FCC leadership reacts to this) could be a huge thing and inform how US privacy practices develop going forward instead of data being just up for grabs depending who has the biggest wallet.

A party with a winning message doesn't need to restrict voting. This is the only idea the GOP has, and it is neither new nor good.  

Texas becomes latest battle in GOP's push for stricter voting laws. Here are the others.

Harder and harder to tune out the sound of TOS phaser orbital bombardment that goes for just hooooours.

Kind of brilliant-- Colonial pays the ransom, and then, not three days later, the ransomware gang gets their shit knocked in and their Bitcoin stash seized.

@DrHankPym This is a great time to point out that we'd have been here sooner if the former guy hadn't denied there was a problem and if Republicans weren't politicizing a pandemic and its solutions- and still are.

I don't sing, but this is just wonderful. Certainly does make me wish I were better at singing. Or languages.

Why is Lauren Boebert even there?

You know what, screw it, I'll concentrate on prepping a resume for the upcoming Biotech ARPA
