I finished David Graeber's "Bullshit Jobs" book. I have thinkie things to say about the book, but overall I am gobsmacked at how he strung the history and the sociology of our current employment situation.
Not sure I 100% agree with his conclusions about UBI being the answer but I definitely want to be more mindful about what I work on and how to change the system that punishes those who do caring labor.

Hope to see you there!

@maiki thing is Twitter is surprisingly effective for marketing and has keyed into folks need to use the platform for broadcasting. Think of how many shows use hashtags as a way to determine engagement. Or how many sponsored events have their own live Twitter feeds.
The problem with Federation is it doesn't already have the audience. And until Twitter alienates their audience there's little we can do to make folks change. I've seen almost 10 years of attempts to change it - all failed.
