I have to work with my boss' code and it's really, really messy. I'm having to make architectural changes to make it work. Lot's of bad practices everywhere: globals, hard-coded service addresses, pulling code from another project instead of abstracting that away into a common package…
"As privacy scholars and advocates concerned with human rights, we write to express our dismay with the decision to have Palantir as a platinum sponsor for the Amsterdam Privacy Conference (APC).
The presence of Palantir as a sponsor of this conference legitimizes the company’s practices and gives it the opportunity to position itself as part of the agenda. This is deeply problematic and extremely regrettable."

Many people wonder whether we are already living in an actual #Cyberpunk dystopia. Technically, it might be true: the 2017 revenue of #Apple is bigger than for example Switzerland's or Norway's. Tech megacorps have immense wealth and power.
However, Cyberpunk is dark, bleak and rainy. As long as we have sunshine and parks, forests and nature nearby, we can take breaks and recover. #Google, Apple etc. cannot take that away from us (yet).
Mining companies such as #RWE can.
The activists at #HambacherForst and elsewhere are rightfully getting a lot of attention because surface mining is so visibly destructive and dirty.
We have to realize that they are actually preserving what keeps us from inevitably drifting towards a grey #Cyberpunk future. They deserve our full support because it is ultimately the same struggle.
Forest campaigners are #Solarpunk|s and we should learn from them. We know how to fight digital Megacorps, but we have to do more than that.
Let's not forget that benevolent technocratic liberals managed to be even more insulting than Trump free throwing paper towels at people....
