Productive day behind me. Time for a jar of peanut butter and milk as a reward. Yep, I'm *that* guy.

Reminder to everyone still working three dead-end jobs dog-walking, Uber-driving, grocery-running, adjunct-educating, hoping to win the killer-app lottery living in a coffin apodment or parents' closet, United Airlines aircraft engineers living in vans in $4000 rent cities, 70-year-old retirees going back to work in Amazon sweatshops sardine-packed 5 families to a house, and the other 60% of America in poverty after adjusting for rent/health care costs, as the biosphere dies.

Fuck Capitalism

I literally know a United Airlines aircraft engineer, makes $90,000 a year, and lives, ironically, in a 2012 Chevvy *Suburban* parked in a Walmart.

Wife and kids live hundreds of miles away. Sees them once a week. Constantly in marriage counseling.

No one is making it.

I think I've come to the conclusion that I enjoy web development - I just fucking hate the industry. (What I've seen of it so far at least).

Business' don't have any concern with the basic rights of people (privacy specifically). Yes they stick a "Privacy Policy" in the right place, but that's only to tell you how they are violating it, in general.

We really are in a dirty place in the networked age. We need to do better. And developers need to stop worshipping at the alter if fucking #google

Oh sure, when a million dollar company puts files on my computers that track my activity its 'cookies' and 'business', but when I put files on their computers that extract information its 'hacking' and 'illegal' #computing #internet #privacy #bigdata #doublestandards

So I was using an iPhone 6 Plus for a bit but I don't really like phones I can't put in my pocket, so I went back to my old SE, which I promptly dropped and cracked the glass.

It's kinda perfect now.

Talking about language revitalisation and reclamation makes me feel ooh LA LA :-P

There is a woman behind me in the cafe bitching about someone she used to follow on Instagram who gets a lot of commissions to trace poses straight out of Final Fantasy. "I just want people to stop paying her. I'm so mad about it!"

And I just can't stop snickering. Welcome to the Internet, darling.

Hot take: the more powerful you are, the harder people under you will work to save you from your bad choices, & the harder they'll avoid actually addressing those problems. A perfect storm for inflated confidence: your continued success is owed to the people covering your ass, but you attribute it even more to yourself.
