Remember when Medium convinced bloggers to give up their personal sites because it was free and the user interface was super intuitive? And now they literally try to charge subscription fees to people who want to read more than X number of articles per month (I have no idea what X it 10? 20? It's super unclear to me). Do the writers get a cut of that or are they producing free content for Medium to profit off of?

A reminder that this year is not an anomaly and things won't suddenly get better next year. There is no going back to "normal" and things are only going to get worse until we fix the ongoing climate crisis.

A script that corrects the word "maker" into "guy who does arts and crafts"

"Maker space" = craft room

"Maker ethos" = enthusiasm for arts and crafts

"Maker fair" = craft expo

None of this shit is revolutionary, it's just stuff that your grandmas have always done. You are the newcomer. It's not any less arts-and-crafts just because it involves a 3D printer now.
