I hate hearing (middle-class or wealthy) people say how much opportunity there is to make money in recessions. All it does is increase the wealth gap when already wealthy investors buy up houses and other assets and literally lord it over the lower income population. I like how this program from a U.S. city government is trying to open home-ownership to it's citizens.

That last part about mental disorder is especially true.

Censorship in the West for minor criticisms isn’t overtly blocking in the information. Instead it is drowned out with the government’s narrative on all major platforms of discourse

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.

I’m a tech conservative with one foot in newborn paranoid

“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.

I know as far as the ideals or political thought far left and far right are different. I guess I am thinking more in line that people on either extreme can become radicalized and land on “the ends justify the means.” So while the far left may say oppression is bad, if they become radicalized they may end up doing oppressive things to those that are not of the same political thought. If someone on the far right is radicalized and already believed in oppression then they just go full force on it. Just a thought.

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

I never knew the name for it, but I always thought that if you go far enough in either direction you end up at the same place

Damn, that’s terrible news for journalists who are actually trying to investigate government atrocities

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 don’t like Elon either, but it’s not like it falls on him to end world hunger. If the banks that funded his acquisition can cobble together $43 billion then they could have done the same to end world hunger, provide clean water infrastructure, and any number of other projects to benefit humanity. Unfortunately the ones that hoard the wealth are short sighted and don’t see that as a good investment.

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.
