"We're not the poor and exploited we're the innovators"

@pinkprius There's the socialist part of me saying "yes" and the punk part of me saying "squatting long-term in an abandoned warehouse is like the dream."

@pinkprius I've also noticed this framing of poverty as innovation in the "gig economy", and it's often true that necessity is the mother of invention. But below a certain level poverty interferes with your ability to function as a human, and so also to innovate.

@pinkprius Aren't boarding houses a good idea? Not everyone wants to buy or rent.

Why did they become rare, I wonder...
