hard to escape the conclusion that tech workers should be sabotaging their companies (or leaving the door open for sabotage a bit wider for others), especially as the companies swallow up more of our lives and adopt messaging strategies aimed at defending monopolies as desirable
i am always surprised at how little sabotage goes on, not that it’s non-existent but that our rickety system doesn’t have suffer more internal attacks. maybe that’s a testament to the socialization and propaganda and screening these companies/industries
I dunno there’s a general reluctance to accept this is a necessary move re: what I’ve talked abt before with there being a huge gulf between how we talk about these companies (singular evils, threats to civilization, etc) and what we recommend (smart regulation, more leaks, etc)

This is a great column on the lies perpetuated by Uber/Lyft but we must never forget that for over 10 years the greatest asset the gig economy had was a tech media that uncritically repeated and exaggerated its claims. nytimes.com/2021/10/17/opi…
It’s a fact that if not for being underwritten by venture capital, the unprofitable & inefficient firms that dominate the “gig economy” wouldn’t exist. It’s also a fact that non-labor coverage of these companies was obsequious and key to their “success” papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cf…
With of course obvious exceptions (reporting of scandals, workplace culture, outright illegality, etc.)

Facebook service outage is really a great data point for the argument that we should not have a global social media platform that dominates multiple lines of communication actoss various countries and regions
Probably not a good idea to have a system where many people cannot communicate with each other or the world because of a *squints at notes* server configuration error, according to the company
It’s funny that the day after the FB whistleblower said she doesn’t think antitrust is the solution…this happens. Maybe we shouldn’t have One Platform to Rule Them All, maybe she should give documents to the FTC?

have you read a dumber idea?
i know i know the headline is a bit hyperbolic of the argument but i read the argument and i do not like the argument
Why does the weakness/hypocrisy of Westphalia mean we should legitimize corporations? CORPORATRIONS which should already be contested since they're immortal persons with more rights & less responsibilities! Reading the holes corporations plug as evidence of their necessity is BAD
