Today is Thanksgiving in the US, or National Day of Mourning or "Unthanksgiving Day" for some Native Americans. Wampanoag people shared food with pilgrims in 1621 but were repaid with centuries of genocide. Learn about Indigenous resistance in this book: shop.workingclasshistory.com/c

I just want you guys to know that the multiple *years* I've had my music on Spotify and iTunes have still made me less money than the first two weeks of the same albums on Bandcamp.

Please support artists directly if you can.

Mastodon space in many ways feels like the early Internet. The enthusiasm is palpable and contagious.

Just discovered Project Gemini (gemini.circumlunar.space) and it's just what I needed--another rabbit hole.

Tom Morello and Serj Tankian are now promoting NFTs. 😞

When did every single "news" outlet website turn into a $#!+pile of clickbait? I feel like I missed that memo.

Just got spam email inviting me to invest in the new cryptocurrency "sexytrade." Proprietary platform, guaranteed results, everyone will be happy.

Too late, guys. If cryptocurrency was truly viable, porn would have been all over it ten years ago.

I'm looking for employment where, every day as I go into work, I know my kids, when they are adults, will be aware of the benefit to them of my work. I am looking for a company working toward enduring impact that should still be clear 10 and 20 years from now.
If you can't live without foresight, and you could use a Linux/JVM/Postgres/Kotlin dev who can do pretty much anything given a minute to read the docs, please do reach out.

Say your self-driving car had client-side scanning like Apple’s phones, tablets, and computers will soon do… how would that work?

So in Turkey, for example, instead of issuing a long-winded command like “Siri, take me to the nearest police station”, you could mutter “Fuck Erdoğan!” and the car would understand.

It would work the same way in your “smart” home…

Smart tech is so cool, right? Ever wondered who’s getting smarter about whom?

I’m telling y’all go get that money.

Companies just plain don’t give these kinds of raises and I’m sure all of us could use something new right about now

I know this is an anecdotal percentage, but it was yet another reminder for me to be mindful of salary when I’m working to retain engineers that have been with my company for a few years. Don’t take ‘em for granted.

It gives me joy & hope seeing #aaronsw posts in the fediverse today. I'm thinking about Aaron's work on RSS and Markdown, which were standards that respected the web as an ecology with values as much as a technology. I think Aaron would have liked it here.
