blockchain 

i submit that if you'd _designed_ cryptocurrency/blockchain as a weaponized meme aimed right at the possibility of having sustained intelligent thoughts about distributed & decentralized systems, you could not have done a finer job than the version of it we have now.

imo the term "queen bee" is both innacurate and outdated. like she doesn't "rule" the hive and also monarchies are evil

once again i'm putting forth my proposal to change it to "milf bee" which is more accurate and all around better

There should be something between uppercase and lowercase, called “dappercase”. It’s for when styling via bold and italic aren’t enough, but all caps are too extreme

the hashtag resistance people with marvel-branded avis are a bit, like that week mastodon ran a fake gamestop, right?

At some point in time the peanut butter people switched their jars from natural translucent plastic to plastic that is dyed to a colour perfectly matching the peanut butter and I do not appreciate the games this plays with my mind

A lot of rambling about abusive tech and people who code it 

Years ago now I worked a gig that was doing some crap with ISP-grade software that was not great for privacy/safety.

When I realized what was going on I started making noise. I began filing bug reports against privacy/safety/freedom breaches I identified, they got ignored. I finally went up my management chain going "We can't sell this, it's abusive!"

I dunno if it was my cage-rattling or someone else's that got to the CEO, but he eventually announced to the company something to the tune of "We're not alone in this emerging market. If we don't do this, others will anyway so really we're not doing anything that won't happen anyway"

And that stuck with me, because at the time I didn't have a coherent argument against it. Now? My stance on it is pretty solid-- we need far more ethics training than we get now, and we need a union or unions to back up refusal to do this crap on moral and ethical grounds.

So many people in tech feel helpless because they can just ultimately be replaced. It may HURT to replace some people, but the entire industry is kind of a meat grinder and everyone is just a cog in the machine. If you refuse to turn, the org cuts you and spends 3 days to 3 months training a fresh grad to replace you, depending on role.

People need the training to identify the misuses of what they build, the conviction to refuse to build abusive software, and the backing from their peers when they put their foot down. We don't have any of that right now.
