Tech industry shitpost 

There is no such thing as "big tech" vs "small tech" or "corporate" vs "startup", there is only Blue Logo Company or Orange Logo Company

politics-adjacent goof 

I work on a legislation-tracking tool that pulls info on Congress and all the state legislatures, including photos where available, and there's something about the way that our software crops the Senator from Vermont that I find extremely funny

Covid gripe 

I am going to take the brave, bold stance that The World As We Know it will not end in our lifetimes. Things will get bad, sometimes much worse than we planned, but we will be forced to muddle through, and mostly, we'll manage somehow.

We should prepare accordingly! Practice muddling through things, consider the ways you can help your loved ones muddle more effectively

I feel like there's an asymmetry in our culture (especially Online) where someone who makes an optimistic prediction is expected to be accountable in some way if/when things go badly, but you can just keep chicken-littleing again and again about everything and still claim you are "right" when the sky falls

Covid Wastewater Data 

Minnesota's actual case reports are backlogged so far as to be basically useless, but there's good news in the sewers!

Covid gripe 

I'm trying to figure out why I get so mad every time someone jokes about the "next variant" like its a foregone conclusion that things will inevitably get worse.

I mean, of course things might get worse! Things might always get worse! But reflexive doomerism helps exactly nobody

If you spend a lot of time on YouTube on iOS, I cannot recommend the Vinegar extension highly enough! It blocks ads, gives you picture-in-picture and provides a native video experience that’s much more seamless than what YouTube itself tries to do!
