tl;dr “Diversity when it serves the oppressed is an asset, but a con when it serves the oppressors.”

What a world we live in when we need an open source movement to push back the capitalist drive to privatize a natural resource like food.

That being said, I’m glad to see that movement exists!

The emphasis added in this post seems to speak to the limitation of the technology, because initial support will be for SMS and MMS. Then later on it will support voice and general data which require more bandwith.

Second, I’m surprised T-Mobile is willing to announce a deal with Elon Musk, given he reneged on the last couple of big deals he’s announced

I came across this the other day and thought if anyone else besides me takes these promises to plant trees or some other carbon capture method with a grain of salt. As a search engine it acts as a proxy for Bing and then uses Open Street Maps when looking up addresses, so it adds a dash of privacy.

That essay outlined the issue really well. I would say overall its the wealth inequality which has widened over the years that is mostly to blame. If people were able to afford homes or rents then the glut of those properties would already be occupied. Instead the already wealthy can continue to generate wealth by using the convenience of the platform.

“Thank you for your cooperation” I’ve always thought that sentence sounded very dystopian

He would rather exploit his workforce and make the conditions more stressful than just layoff people directly. That’s sleazy as hell.

That’s really good idea. Whenever my “dumb” TV bites the dust I will keep that in mind

I mean it can lead to inflation, but this round is not only through wage increases. However, the Fed is disproportionately targeting their approach to hurt working class rather than the rich

I always find it interesting that many of the harsh criticisms of cryptocurrency can be said of traditional currency and other assets. In the interview he even stated that the crypto world is speeding through the growing pains traditional markets had when they were not regulated.

I’m curious what kind of employer it is.

I like that they also tackled having a new device not having a charger by default, so people don’t end up with a million of the same charger

The right-wing are willing to exploit workers to raise the capital needed to fund the tactics and propaganda they use to keep exploiting workers.

In my opinion leftists opt to help people realize that they are being exploited and that they don’t have to be. Unfortunately, this can be slower since this is done more individually.
