@qub I wish I understood that :(
I mean, we can make that comparison, but zoom does a damn good job at being a household name, jitsi by comparison fails on all counts.
I agree that people should support open code over proprietary code, but this is a problem of marketing and visibility, not values.
@ink_slinger all I can say is oof
@ink_slinger I mean yeah please don't subscribe. But even the headline alone is some crazy late stage capitalism shit.
@msh Yeah, I don't know if I agree with the remark on libertarianism (I'm of the opinion it was always bad) but I do strongly agree with you on the points of political ideology and worthiness.
Besides, people who feel valued and have a sense of purpose do better work anyways, and I've yet to meet any team or person who does groundbreaking work that hasn't felt that way, or appeared to be in such an environment. And if that's socialism, welp, I don't really have a problem with it.
And while I generally support capitalism, this is the kind of libertarian nonsense that turns us all into slaves in the matrix.
Hmm... so I know that there's a lot of anti-capitalist people tooting about on fedi, and generally I am very pro-capitalism, because I believe we wouldn't be able to have our current quality-of-life without it (even if I also believe socialist ideas like Canada's healthcare are superior solutions).
But then there's this. The unholy shirtballs is this!? https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/theres-too-much-life-in-our-work-life-balance-xwj9wv0b0
Which reminds me, I need to follow up on https://github.com/keybase/client/issues/23605 and finish that PR.
Got a reminder this week to reconfirm my Trello account and link it with my Atlassian account. I forgot I used Trello!
Anyways, I think I need to move a lot of that content from Trello into an org file. I organized a lot of my life in grad school with Trello, but having a local file on disk is so much better.
Actually, the on disk part isn't super needed? Perhaps I could use Keybase to maintain a sync'd TODO.org / IDEAS.org?
@iconography ugh ya got me
@msh @kai yeah, I think it just ended up being a harsh transition between management companies, and they just didn't really make an effort because there were a lot of problems. Boulder is weird place in that the university shutting down due to covid caused a huge exodus in the city (university town). So I'm sure they had their own reasons but it did get to be a bit much.
Overall it was a solid move though, and could have been so much worse. Glad to be in a better place!
@kai nah no offense taken. I moved here because my job is basically what I was studying in master's degree. It had more to do with the work itself than anything cultural or fiscal. And yeah, there's not much for 3D vision jobs in Calgary :(
@kai I am! I moved down to the States for work, been here for a couple years now.
@kai Largely I was priced out of Boulder, and had some disagreement with management at my prior place, which centred around how much I was paying vs. the way they acted and their agency over problems on the property (e.g. snow removal, inspections, utilities).
My commute to work has now extended, but I live a lot closer to most of my friends, and since I'm WFH anyways the cheaper rent and larger place are definitely more valuable right now.
