in tech:

there are lots of lefty folks who start companies! lots of folks who have good ideas and are generally agreeable! lots of folks who, at face value, are trustworthy

but google started with "don't be evil" and now they're Google

the capitalist machine eats the best of our intentions and platitudes from trustworthy sources become weak points for exploitation. the good people aren't enough to stop corrosion – and insisting on safeguards isn't distrust

I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description ["Butter"], and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the tub of spread involved in this case is not that.

more than half of americans now support bernie sanders' cybernetics-for-all program, along with an overwhelming majority of cyborgs

it would be just terrible if we had unions or guilds that let young people do standardized training and build confidence before they are exploited and used to lower the standard pay of our professions

i love being a rational science brain unguided by emotion and refuse to rename my image editing tool that i want professionals to use instead of photoshop from being a literal ableist slur

Less interested in the demdebate, more interested in the denidebate, in which @denikombucha tells people why she's the best 2020 choice and some ABC person just sits there nodding.

PSA! Finding work for my friend who's a nutritionist/personal trainer. Please read because there's a lot to this :D Also please share! <3

My friend Jen has fibro, IC, depression, and anxiety. Two years ago she was hugely overweight and unfit, and walking ~100m was enough exertion that she'd feel sick afterwards. Today, she's lost 80kg in weight and is a qualified personal trainer and nutritionist. She does Krav, boxing, runs a community social walking group, teaches teens self-defense. (1/?)
