Tech press, repeat after me:

$1bn+ valuation does not make a company a unicorn anymore. If it did, then we would have to accept that unicorns are as populous as horses now.

$1bn+ in annual revenue and profitability make a startup a unicorn now.

$1.99/month CPanel shared hosting providers are still the best cheap managed PostgreSQL option for small serverless projects.

Why is making noun plural in svenska so fucking complicated

I am looking for a registered investment advisor (RIA) who works with Americans abroad on financial / retirement planning.

Does anyone have a recommendation?

Bonus points if they happen to be familiar with Sverige 🇸🇪.

Tired of this scripting language serving us endless episodes of predictably lackluster performance: RuPaul on Rails

I have had to question more things than I am comfortable questioning simultaneously this week.

I hate feeling ready for the weekend. I much prefer looking forward to work.

I don’t like most comic book media because the stories rely on solving problems with violence. That’s a terrible message to reinforce in society. Also, lazy and trite.

Where is the Marvel diplomat? The organizer? The legislator? The whistleblower?

I rarely get to say Facebook is right about something, so it’s a delight to say it:

Facebook is right to not give in to Murdoch & Australia’s pay-to-link break-the-Internet scheme.

“You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously.” —Sophia Bush

Why should you care about data privacy, even if you think you have "nothing to hide"?

Because our data is being used to push increasingly polarized content and capitalize on divisiveness.

Disrupt surveillance capitalism. Take back your privacy. Use Tor.

With the exception of Netflix, I treat streaming services like curable STIs.

“You haven’t seen ‘Mulan’‽ We should watch it while we’re still Disney positive.”

What happened to Entropic? Npm seems no less problematic under Github/Microsoft.

What are some _specific_ fair labor practices you wish were more common in tech companies?

• Balanced Employee IP Agreement (BEIPA)
• post-termination exercise (PTE) windows > 5 years
• open pay bands
• remote work in all countries
• 9+ months gender equal parental leave

Bitcoin is a massive, massive ongoing ecological disaster. You can not in any way pretend you are an environmentally conscious company, and support bitcoin.

At the moment, one of the biggest things that could be done to help fight global warming is to destroy bitcoin.
