"people who do 'unskilled labor' don't deserve to have money" is a spicy fucking take because is there any labor more unskilled than inheriting wealth and then pretending you earned it

US residents:

Jump on the Equifax leak claim wagon. You get $125 in the settlement, automatically. ALSO, you can be compensated at the rate of $25 per hour for time spend remediating their fuckup, and only have to provide documentation if you spent more than 10 hours unfucking them. The official claim site is equifaxbreachsettlement.com/

My brother's plum trees have borne fruit. (Hand for scale)

Now the question becomes: what the !?#$ do I do with all these plums?

Recently, Github has restricted people from Iran, Syria, and other regions from accessing their private repositories and the static website host Github Pages.

Free and ethical technology use denounces such crony nepotism oppressing individuals from practicing technological liberties and hacker culture. Please consider using sourcehut.org/ as your new host for your projects. Sourcehut is 100% libre, composable, Javascript-free, and does not track you at all!

Funny that, with the whole stealing tips thing, (whose service I've never used but they evidently have my email) is using the situation to throw some serious shade

Watched an interesting documentary, "Hail Satan?", about the rise of the Satanic Temple.

I highly recommend it.

Since 2015 I've been trying to understand the fissures within the Democratic party and leftwing US politics. I think this gets at one of the more subtle but very present points of conflict.

After I've just rejected another project offer from a company whose company values I disagree with, I started thinking: Wouldn't it be great if all of us IT people could band together and sign a pledge not to work for unethical companies?

If enough of us did it, given how hard it is to find good people in our line of work, we could have a real impact!

Agreeing on a definition of "ethical" would not be easy, but I bet we could find some common ground.

Let me know if this proposal makes sense!

@cavaliertusky @evanskaufman Speaking of silencing. Last year, a record number of journalists were killed for doing their job in this environment.

One thing I'm sure of: in a week's time, I'm going to blast [the account that had me limited] publicly every day for ANOTHER week.

Numerous class-action lawsuits have been filed against companies using nepotism tactics to undervalue those who serve the company. Not a single class-action lawsuit has been taken to proceedings in court, dismissed because these gig-economy "jobs" are not contracts of employment for those various people who fulfill these services.

My rule of thumb is as such:
1) Do NOT use those apps, or participate in the gig-economy.

2) If you do use those apps, TIP in CASH! The currency with little tracking
