I think I found the "wording" that links why cryptocurrencies and technologies that rely on it are antithetical to the concepts I understand to be critical to liberation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crypto-anarchism holds it to SOUND like a good thing but under this ecosystem where we haven't even tackled the social issues, these digital systems would usher a new era of feudalism that should be remained to the limits of comics and books, never reality.

Son what the fuck? 10 YEARS? Russia is looking wild for this (but also, a simple step for the USA to show some sense of allyship is to federally legalize weed, no one should be locked up for this shit)

if you let someone know for the first time how their actions have hurt or upset you, and the conversation ends with you apologising for doing this. it is a clear sign you are dealing with someone who is about to make your life very difficult.

I’m not sure where I stand on the PTO debate. <br><br><br><br>On one hand, unlimited PTO sounds GREAT, but if the company culture around it sucks, then you’re SOL and the company owes you nothing for unused time when you leave. <br><br><br><br>On the other hand, 2weeks PTO/8 sick days sounds criminal 😭*

I agree. Like I'm in favor of minimum forced vacation (like you HAVE to take off a month at least every year). But completely unlimited in the wrong place is a trap. And you tend not to know UNTIL you take it.

Instead of keeping a backlog of features (solutions), try keeping a backlog of problems. That way you can prioritize the impact of the problem, instead of prioritizing how easy it is to build the solution 💡
