These two ex-Slack product managers want to replace bus stations with industrial agriculture

Just a difference of opinions folks. Some people think transit should be free, some people think the government should round up, torture, and kill political opponents

This Is Hell!

episode 1098: Mourning Thanksgiving.

---------------------

Yesterday I learned

- thanksgiving has been celebrated in the US since the 1600s
- the "pilgrims and indians" bits of the myth were added in the 1800s as WASP propaganda

so I guess a reminder that if you live and/or work in , to make rent payments to the Duwamish Tribe.

@DialMforMara i'm still not sure where i stand on this, but IGD did post a FAQ style response because "The Seattle Fare Strike call has generated controversy within left-leaning urbanist discussion circles (such as Seattle Tap-on Memes for Transit-Oriented Teens) that warrants engagement."

The #Seattle winter thing where you have to check-in with yourself around 3:30pm, to see if there's anything you really need to do while there's still one hour of functional daylight left.

Sunset for today, Nov 10, is 4:38pm.

@Dayglochainsaw @hasya23 this... This has to be a troll, right!?

Phrases like, "full anarchist like us" and "you're breaking the NAP" are just too cringe to be real....

@luka to give some historical context.

@Gargron introduced trending hashtags a year or so ago.

People requested the feature be removed because it could easily be abused (using bots to game hashtags, using a hashtag to get an unrelated offensive content in front of people, etc.)

so the feature was pulled to let the idea bake a bit.

Now it is being re-introduced with some moderation features built to go along with it.

which is neat

@Tak yup 😕 , they saw other companies being pressured to not work with ICE and decided to hang an "open for business sign"

capitalists do a capitalism

"[GitLab] recently changed its company handbook to declare it won't ban potential customers on 'moral/value grounds,' and that employees should not discuss politics at work.

The policy addition, created by co-founder and CEO Sid Sijbrandij [was implemented] two weeks ago. It was proposed to clarify that GitLab is committed to doing business with 'customers with values that are incompatible with our own values.'"
