This week on my #podcast, I read my @Medium column, "#GigWork Is the Opposite of #Steampunk," about the worst-of-all-worlds of #bossware, where an app is your boss, and you live at work because your home and/or car is a branch office of the factory:… 1/ A woodcut of a weaver's loft, where a woman works at a hand-

Resonant News:
🔴Proscribed TERRORIST GRPs of #NorthEast hv lost many SENIOR cadre in last few months. After drone attacks on their camps by PDF (Feb 9th), they suffered huge loss. Terrorist grp now claims, INDIAN COMMANDOS(21 Para #SF) didnt let them infiltrate into India for
treatment. 🙄
Terrorist grp lost 2 senior men on Jan 4th, then they were shocked by the 81mm mortars showered on their camps (9th Feb) and now 4 more have been eliminated at the border too.Ouch! 😶

These terrorist groups carry out attacks on INDIAN SOIL and then escape to their
camps in Myanmar. Now they want India to let them treat their injured terrorists. The LOGIC is fantastic! 😑

You can read articles on the Feb 9th and Jan 4th attack here 👇

Last week, Last week, I decided to go to the Tenderloin "Linkage" Center to see what it's all about. You see, my son Roman is an addict with mental illness and has been on and off the streets for a few years. I needed to get in & see how this place is "helping" people with SUD. Image
Lots of workers standing on the outside (on phones) as well as security.
My process:
1) Ask for help getting off drugs.
2) Answer two q's - Why are you here? Do you have weapons?
3) Told to come back on Mon for help w/ SUD, but I can come in & use
I was led to the "harm reduction" area. People were doing all kinds of things from resting, sleeping, talking, dancing or passed out on the ground. Loud music played in the background. It looked like a party scene

✨In the generes I rep, I'd love to see more projects by writers from Black, Indigenous, Latine/x, Asian, AAPI, Middle Eastern, and African communities and their far-reaching diasporas, as well as the LGBTQIA+, trans and nonbinary, and disabled and neurodiverse communities. #MSWL

んで黒人俳優のSilvan elf(と髭無し女性ドワーフ)盛り上がりを眺めてるのですが、#theringsofpower #JRRT精読


#theringsofpower #JRRT精読
ただ日本語圏ではHistory of Middle-earth全12巻も最新のNatureOfMiddle-earthも邦訳がないので
01)エルフの容貌については、#JRRT の最初期から最晩年までにいろいろ設定や範囲に変更があり、どの時点のものを「原典」とするかで違ってくる
01b)エルフの肌についてのfair of skinという表現は「白い」「美しい」いずれを(も)意味するのかEldar以外も含むのか…はけっこう微妙

As much as I love everyone FINALLY embracing remote work from anywhere, been in this game for a while now…

In 2016, I set out to build a globally competitive AI #startup from Sault Ste Marie, Canada.

Here’s how that went:
I had a vision.
I had a dream.

I wanted to revitalize a steeltown with tech.

I wanted to prove that you could build best-in-class tech from ANYWHERE in the world. In 2016.

I was proven wrong.
I was literally laughed at by Toronto investors.

Most Waterloo investors didn’t believe my dreams could be possible up “North”.

I ultimately determined that local Soo investors would have been more likely to fund a cupcake shop than deep tech AI; despite endless attempts.

Et si je lançais un thread de mes #lectures pour 2022 ? Hop, c'est parti.
1- "Elder Race" d'Adrian Tchaikovsky. Novella entre #SF et #Fantasy, sympathique mais qui m'a moyennement convaincu malgré de bonnes idées. Les quiproquos engendrés par les différences de culture/langage sont cependant bien gérés. Peut-être lue sur trop de temps pour en profiter. Image
2- "Vivez l'Aventure > Minecraft, Les mines de Kômoriom" par Alain T. Puysségur et Vladimir Subbotin. Revival de la série de Gründ, ici en s'appuyant sur #Minecraft. Aventure sympa, pas trop complexe avec énigmes accessibles aux + jeunes (avec juste un tout petit peu d'aide). Image

#SF 2021: 1000s's of overdose deaths the lethality of fentanyl, the infamy of nonprofit profiteers, 1000's of predatory drug dealers, nonexistent law enforcement, shit policies & the power of the brain’s opioid receptors to suppress/surmount human instincts to live.
Endless failures but the most egregious is our nihilistic @SFDAOffice @chesaboudin a man who lacks both a moral compass & a conscience to protect these kids. “As long as we have people who are addicted to drugs, who are willing to destroy their own bodies and their own lives, no
amount of investment in law enforcement is going to solve this problem.”
— San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin, The Wall Street Journal. Let that quote sink. Chesa's sole job is to protect citizens esp. vulnerable kids like Scott but Chesa adamantly refuses to prosecute

Friday afternoon around 3 he & friends parked in the Marina. Shortly after they noticed men breaking into their car.

Kane & his mates gave chase. That’s when he said they were held at gunpoint.

Kane joked with me that he would never come back to SF.
In reality he says he *will be back in SF for your in December. Though he says he won’t be bringing anything valuable with him and reminds others not to keep valuables in the car. #FilipinoAmericanHistoryMonth #SF

#BroadbandForAll is not only about online connectivity but it's also a job creator! It's a needed solution across sectors that impacts our health, education, jobs, and even remote family visits with elders. @CAGovernor @Rendon63rd @SenToniAtkins @NancySkinnerCA #BroadbandCantWait
In California, Gov. Newsom proposed $7B for broadband that the legislature should vote into action now to start closing the digital divide. We don't have time to waste anymore. #BroadbandForAll #CABudget #BroadbandCantWait @CAGovernor @Rendon63rd @SenToniAtkins @NancySkinnerCA

We're listening to public comment and debate for an environmental impact appeal to a coffeeshop before @sfbos at 1801 Mission Street. It's already called a "tech hub" cafe, a "high-end" cafe, and a "luxury" business twice.
The cafe will be located within the American Indian Cultural District (which includes Mission Dolores and Dolores Park), which callers say was not consulted on the proposed cafe.…

NEW: #COVID in 2020 closed schools and stores and cast social inequities in stark relief. Now we're seeing signs of an #SF that is more civic-minded. Reforms that have been elusive for years helped renters, businesses, the unhoused, and others.… 1/
The changes hardly offset the pandemic’s toll; more than 500 of our neighbors are gone. But there are clear improvements spurred by COVID. We’re taking a closer look at 5 of them — streets, spaces, homelessness, housing, and Muni. 2/
With Slow Streets and Shared Spaces in particular, we're looking at an inconceivably quick set of transformations, the most dramatic since @SundayStreets kicked off in 2008. Can you imagine the ordeal something like that would have required pre-COVID? 3/

Conservatorship is a hot-button topic in #SF.
But for Supervisor @RafaelMandelman, the issue isn’t just about policy. It’s personal. We spoke with him about his experience conserving his mother & why he thinks conservatorship can help move SF (1/5)
.@RafaelMandelman’s mother battled mental illness and homelessness throughout her life.

“I'm a freshman at Yale, and I'm on a payphone in the library talking to her in a homeless shelter, which was this sort of crazy dichotomy," he said. (2/5)
This personal experience led @RafaelMandelman to become a major supporter of conservatorship in SF.
But he’s disappointed with its slow implementation so far.
In nearly two years, just one person has been placed in court-ordered treatment. (3/5)…

Vielerorts steigen d. Kosten für #Wohnen. Die Forderung nach #leistbaren Wohnen ist eine nachvollziehbare polit. Forderung. Verschieden Instrumente stehen zur Zielerreichung zur Verfügung. Viele Städte (uA #Berlin #SanFrancisco, #Wien) haben eine (teilweise) #Mietkontrolle 1/n
