Why am I not surprised that this Uber puff piece was written by Maureen Dowd

I think this is probably one of the worst interviews of Dara I鈥檝e ever read, primarily because this reads like a regression to how Uber was talked about when most of the media was drinking the Kool-Aid nytimes.com/2021/07/16/style/u

The Steam Deck FAQ says that you can install any OS on it, they put no restriction in place.

It's going to be mind-numbing watching tech normies on YouTube with the Steam Deck reacting to Linux

Just cosigned this and encourage my fellow DSA members to do the same! docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAI

RT @MarxistUnityDSA@twitter.com

We have until midnight and need ~60 signatures from DSA members. Please share in your chapters and encourage comrades you know to sign! We really think this is the most important place we can influence this convention but it requires more signatures than our original proposals. twitter.com/MarxistUnityDSA/st

The roots of bad US public transit are *shallow*. Some interwar populism plus postwar preservation of localism over the civil service (because of racism) plus modern hate for city centers (because of racism) plus unwillingness to course-correct by learning from other countries. But "get over yourselves, New York is fine, stop trying to segregate yourselves from it you racist assholes" is too political and contentious, so Americans prefer explanations that imply learning is impossible.

When researchers talk about the deep roots of anything, and when Americans say "oh, yeah, we're anti-urban, it goes back to Jefferson," I cringe. We can use the same deep roots to explain things that are obviously wrong: "Switzerland has poor public transport." After all, it has a very localist tradition, suspicion of large projects, a culture of consensus government without top-down impositions, etc. So clearly it cannot have good transit, right? Except it does, because deep roots is bunk.

I'm convinced that the Freedom Phone is just a viral marketing stunt by Purism to make them seem less sketchy by comparison

After years of studying it, I believe that cryptocurrency is an inherently right-wing, hyper-capitalistic technology built primarily to amplify the wealth of its proponents through a combination of tax avoidance, diminished regulatory oversight and artificially enforced scarcity. twitter.com/ummjackson/status/
