A few months ago, I got a promotion at #Meta with a $50K raise.

I immediately updated my resume b/c I knew I was worth more than that.

I landed a job at #Google that increased my compensation by over $150K.

Tech is one of the few industries where women and BIPOC can be compensated fairly without going to war with their colleagues and bosses.

That kind of stress will take years off of your life. (Google: Racism as a public health issue.)
So, how did I know that I was worth more?
By using resources like and TeamBlind.

Know your worth. Then, add tax!

Jepp, Sheryl #Sandberg tritt nach 14 Jahren als Kopf von #Facebook/#Meta zurück. Mal abgesehen davon, was sie danach so vor hat und wie ihr Verhältnis zu #Zuckerberg so ist, sollte man auch immer im Hinterkopf behalten, aus welcher Familie sie stammt.

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته ..

سأقص عليكم قصة قد تبدو مألوفة لأصحاب العقول السليمة وغريبة لمن ليس لهم علاقة بالواقع

هل سمعت يوما عن:
Metaverse Property
وغيرها من المصطلحات الجديدة التي انتشرت مؤخراً ؟
دعني أخبرك عنها وعن كورونا ..
كان يا مكان في زمان ليس ببعيد ظهر فيروس اجتاح العالم بأسره وحوّل المدن إلى مستنقعات للحجر الصحي

فلازم الناس منازلهم وتحول العمل والدراسة من المحسوس إلى الافتراضي (عن بعد)
ثم اضطر الناس إلى دخول عالم الإفتراض من أبوابه جميعاً طلباً للعمل والعلم والتسوق والترفيه وغيره ..
اتصل الناس بالشبكة العنكبوتية لدرجة أنه لم يعد غريباً عليك لو تواصل معك جدك التسعيني عبر أحد تطبيقات التواصل الإجتماعي ..
ثم أصبح من الطبيعي أن يصلك طلب صداقة من أحد أقاربك القواعد الذي كان يعيش في بلدة نائية بعيدة بالكاد يصلها الإنترنت ..

🧵Thread Metaverse :


The metaverse is becoming a huge trend lately. Everyone is talking about it, yet its definition is still evolving. No one can explain for sure what the metaverse actually is or what its future will be. Image

Before understanding the metaverse, it is essential to understand Web3. Web3 is simply an interacting internet where you can OWN digital assets called tokens. They can either be fungible (Cryptocurrencies) or non-fungible (NFTs) Image

Now, let’s carry on with the metaverse. Even though it is commonly described as something complex, it is just a logical consequence of technological evolution: The moment in time when the digital world matters more to us than the physical one. Follow me on this one: Image

Last week the Wisconsin Office of the Special Counsel (OSC) presented its findings on an election integrity probe to the Wisconsin State Assembly (WSA).

The 136-page report "uncovered evidence of election fraud in the November 2020 election."

I’ll outline the egregious results.
Former state Supreme Court justice and OSC lead investigator Michael Gableman testified before the WSA, detailing the findings and concluding, "I believe the legislature ought to take a very hard look at the option of decertification of the 2020 Wisconsin presidential election."
Of note: OSC initially outlined "roadblocks to a full investigation" in November.

In other words, they expected evidence to be hidden & destroyed, and people not to cooperate.

"OSC and the Assembly continue to be blocked from investigating portions of the Wisconsin government."

⚡️New 🔵: Facebook Must Do More To Address Ukraine Disinformation

The alarming spread of disinformation requires unprecedented emergency response from Facebook/Meta; RFOB stands with Polish/Baltic leaders in demanding action…
“Facebook is failing to take all necessary steps to protect the Ukrainian people and shut off Russia’s spread of disinformation about the invasion.” (2/3)
“Facebook has profited from Russian disinformation for years, aiding and abetting Russia in the lead up to the Ukrainian invasion. But more aggressive action is urgently needed.” (3/3)

Somebody is unhappy & has complained to #Facebook/#Meta about my many shares concerning #Russia's #war against #Ukraine. @Facebook has blocked me til 6 March 2022. I complained on 27 February to @Meta that the block has plain political reasons. So far, the block remains in place.
It is not that my posts are exceptionally important. Yet, note that Russia wages an explicitly anti-Western #war in #Ukraine. I am the Western political scientist who has spent most time in Ukraine during the last 20 years (17). I am thus one, among many other, obvious targets.
UPD: Several colleagues kindly sent additional complaints to Facebook during the last half hour. As a result, I seem to have been just unblocked again. Thanks for the empathy and support! That was fast.

@Comunardo @PuniFra Ci stavo pensando proprio oggi. Da quando hanno fatto sfilare le bare di Bergamo ho capito alcune cose. La prima è che tentavano di far pensare alle persone di essere veramente lì per renderle partecipi dell'orrore ed impaurirle.
@Comunardo La seconda è che questi filmati televisivi in cui da un po' di tempo si alternano scene di guerra con immagini di videogiochi mi fa venire il dubbio che non siano eventi casuali. I media stanno testando la capacità delle persone nel distinguere la realtà da quella virtuale.
@Comunardo Ho più di un sospetto che questi esperti di marketing stiano testando una forma di metaverso.

Come si contrasta un folle che non teme di scagliare il pianeta in una guerra nucleare?
La mediazione con lui non serve, è chiaro anche agli scemi.
Ragionare non si può: è una #lucida #dissennata #follia #pianificata quella che osserviamo.
Lo si priva del sostegno, quindi, in ogni modo possibile.
Dal suo entourage ai finanziatori diretti fino alle realtà fiorite sul commercio internazionale, dal sostegno pubblico (#Putin si appresta a chiudere #Meta/ #Facebook in #Russia al quale chiedeva di
applicare il #factchecking -pensa te) alle cascata di effetti a catena che riguardano anche il famoso #swift (Francia e Germania sono adesso orientati verso il blocco, noi seguiremo a ruota come è giusto che sia).

#Meta is threatening to shut down Facebook & Insta in Europe in a battle with regulators. Will the EU blink? Not if they’re listening to public opinion. New @MiC_Global polling across Europe suggests public back EU clamping down on social media. Here’s what they say…Thread 1/8
Far from taking Meta’s side the opposite is true - asked about government regulation of Facebook, TikTok and YouTube, almost one in two (46%) say the government is either “not doing enough” or “not doing nearly enough” 2/8
We asked “which of the following issues do you think government should do more to address, if any”? Top concerns on average are: hate speech and violence (52%), scams (51%), and misinformation or fake news (48%). 3/8

Why the #Metaverse is kinda' dumb...

And how it can save the world.

(or, everyone is missing the true potential of the metaverse)

a thread
What's the metaverse?

Some define it as a persistent 3D universe (or multiverse) that allows users to meet, game, and socialize in virtual spaces.

Some will say it's basically a 3D virtual social media with games, meeting rooms, clubs, and cities.

I hope they're wrong
The true potential of the metaverse goes beyond what you see in the movie Ready Player One.

After all, Ready Player One is dystopian. The world has gone to shit.

People live in slums.

They use the digital world to escape the physical world.

It's a pretty depressing movie

Roblox has been in this world for many years, almost the first metaverse that exists on the internet.
You can create your own imagination or to say, make games, chat with friends explore millions of creations, trade and even earn actual money.
But something seems off.
Mark Zuckerberg has recently announced that Facebook is going to change to Meta, where you can explore, hang out and chat around, create your avatar and even buy virtual items with Etherium.
You can even buy virtual property for thousands. I think this seems off since it really looks like Roblox. Animations look almost like in Roblox, characters are built like the Roblox Metaverse, you can change your avatar and it is really weird, like they copied Roblox.

🧵.. Breve tesis sobre META ( $FB ) con algunos datos que NO encontrarás en sus informes anuales, que NO puedes modelarlos en un Excel y que te pueden ayudar entender el poder de su negocio.

1/ Toda la información que se describe a continuación no va a hacer referencia ni a su posición de caja, ni a su múltiplo EV/FCF, ni tampoco a nada cuantitativo.

Todo eso, probablemente ya lo sabes.
2/ Lo más importante, que veo en Meta, es el hábito que ha creado en la sociedad en sí, conjuntamente con el uso de Smartphones.

Y cuando hablamos de hábitos, estos son muy difíciles de eliminar, sobre todo aquellos que los hacemos de manera inconsciente. Por ejemplo; 👇

Hilo sobre #web3 (Conclusiones)
A día de hoy la #Web3 es más una potencial entelequia que una realidad, pero eso mismo dijimos de #Bitcoin hace una década y míranos ahora. Soy de la opinión que el único patrón que he visto cumplirse es el de la concentración de la riqueza
e inevitablemente la humanidad conseguirá concentrar el espíritu rebelde y descentralizado de la web3 y las criptomonedas. Así que inevitablemente aquellos en posesión de la mayoría de las #criptomonedas de las #blockchain usadas en la #web3 tendrán el poder en la sombra.
Disculpad mi escepticismo innato pero si los fondos de cobertura han invertido billones en este 2021 en los proyectos criptográficos más susceptibles de sostener la futura web3 y sus fundaciones están situadas en Suiza, capital financiera del mundo
