  • This is a very tone deaf alarm message, that also seemingly lies and doesn’t call the police. But the threat of which is very insensitive to people of color.

    This is a very tone deaf alarm message, that also seemingly lies and doesn’t call the police. But the threat of which is very insensitive to people of color. On top of all this, these scooters have been blatantly ignoring legal bans but then enact the threat of police to protect scooters that technically are also illegal in some areas. It’s cognitively dissonant at best.

  • Amazon’s first I to sports is a pretty good move to corner as much of entertainment as they can. It’s a small start for sure, but it’s with a international sport with rabid interest. I had a friend I was hosting from Britain that bought a VPN to view a football game. And I think Amazon will definitely

    Amazon’s first I to sports is a pretty good move to corner as much of entertainment as they can. It’s a small start for sure, but it’s with a international sport with rabid interest. I had a friend I was hosting from Britain that bought a VPN to view a football game. And I think Amazon will definitely try to expand this offering, which would definitely drive people to the service.

  • I think this covers a lot of good points to consider for large and small tech firms when thinking about moving forward. Innovation doesn’t have to mean invasion of privacy. I think looking at how decentralized applications are building platforms around data usage and privacy and anonymity is a good start

    I think this covers a lot of good points to consider for large and small tech firms when thinking about moving forward. Innovation doesn’t have to mean invasion of privacy. I think looking at how decentralized applications are building platforms around data usage and privacy and anonymity is a good start. I never understood why people just assumed it’s a given that they have to give up the rights to their privacy and data to use services. Alternate systems and networks are not just possible they exist look at steemit that pays all content contributors in their own crypto per view, like and share. A norm is not an inevitability.

  • This is definitely going to and has already been happening. I know many people including myself who would not consider living in SF just because it’s prohibitively expensive to live there. It’s already been causing huge problems with homelessness and real estate owners pushing long time residents out

    This is definitely going to and has already been happening. I know many people including myself who would not consider living in SF just because it’s prohibitively expensive to live there. It’s already been causing huge problems with homelessness and real estate owners pushing long time residents out to make way for more lucrative renters with tech sector salaries. San Francisco is not a bad city, but it quickly is becoming an unlivable one.

  • The US Trade tariffs are very counter productive toward The US economy or even the reason of US security. These high tariffs just makes it more expensive for countries to sell here and they will sell elsewhere. And our flailing steel and other metals production industries are being propped up even when

    The US Trade tariffs are very counter productive toward The US economy or even the reason of US security. These high tariffs just makes it more expensive for countries to sell here and they will sell elsewhere. And our flailing steel and other metals production industries are being propped up even when they may not be the most efficient or generating the best steel and aluminium. On top of that, putting up tariffs with long time trade allies alienates then not only economically but politically. Overall bad policy for an increasingly integrated world economy.

  • The initiative to combat this problem is noble but it speak to this much larger issue of sexual harassment and anonymous voyeurism that has unfortunately sprung up in many countries, and particularly Asia. All people, and women especially, should not have to feel paranoid about a hidden camera in public

    The initiative to combat this problem is noble but it speak to this much larger issue of sexual harassment and anonymous voyeurism that has unfortunately sprung up in many countries, and particularly Asia. All people, and women especially, should not have to feel paranoid about a hidden camera in public or even in private establishments. It’s an insidious phenomena which stems from most likely both a sexually repressed culture that at the same time is venting frustration participating in online porn culture that can cause increasing objectification of human bodies, and more strange ways to obtain a dopamine kick after long term use. It’s a cycle that needs to be broken by educating all people at formative stages in life to respect others in all senses of the word.

  • While it does seam disruptive in a sense any protest in order to get attention has to be disruptive. And of course that the solution tkt hear problems have to be solved to get her but it’s still also very true that the tech boom has displaced many residents very fast leading to huge increases in homelessness

    While it does seam disruptive in a sense any protest in order to get attention has to be disruptive. And of course that the solution tkt hear problems have to be solved to get her but it’s still also very true that the tech boom has displaced many residents very fast leading to huge increases in homelessness to people who have been living there for a good portion of their lives. I understand the frustration that they have.

  • It’s a hard balance for museums who want to attract visitors and also protect its most prized artifacts in their collections. I think the solution in general is to institute more robust security measures than just a few ropes or security guards, before displaying anything of value.

  • This is trippy, funny, and all around insane in the best possible way. I really hope that someone who doesn’t understand bitcoin watches this and is thoroughly confused. I’m wondering what bitcoin primer videos they used as training data?

  • Shared housing is an interesting concept, and I get that more and more people are trying to live in cities like New York and San Francisco for cheap flexible terms but it sounds a bit like a shinier version of tenement housing. Pushing more and more people into smaller places with partitions to increase

    Shared housing is an interesting concept, and I get that more and more people are trying to live in cities like New York and San Francisco for cheap flexible terms but it sounds a bit like a shinier version of tenement housing. Pushing more and more people into smaller places with partitions to increase total home costs even more as companies slowly realize that even if you put someone into not ideal conditions you can charge more from them overall. I mean I get it, a lot of things would be taken care of for you, and they say some of these are luxury apartments. But if you look around you can find studios for the price they are charging per room or partition. Arbitrage that may one take advantage of an inexperienced renter.
