i'm off my adhd meds for at least another month and every minute of work is a war of attrition against my busted-ass brain, so i'm asking for donations to help tide things over and relieve the stress of a rapidly depleting bank account balance. i know inflation's kicking all of us in the ass right now (and not in the fun way) but anything you can spare would be a huge help

IS DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURE LIBERATORY?

the digital revolution -the shift across many industries to move their products and systems online over the last twenty years- could never end scarcity under capitalism, because obviously capital runs on scarcity. instead it untethered labor from means, massively reduced the cost of production, & siloed their consumers into an unregulated proprietary digital ecosystem that is, functionally, a company town. IE netflix, adobe, uber, mychart, doordash, etc.

last night i had an epiphany about the labor crisis in America that i think is pretty insightful, so i'm gonna post pictures of the pages here and then translate my chicken scratch in the image descriptions (with some modifications, especially at the end, since i was rushing to get this thought down before bed).

oh what, i'm supposed to care about these characters just because they're white?

wait a minute, you're telling me the entire world economy runs on layers upon layers of gambling debt and it's *not* working out for the ones making bets?????????????????

do i know anyone in the seattle area with a 12 inch or smaller tablet/portable monitor they'd be willing to lend to me tomorrow? the one i use for my teleprompter no longer works and i'm. a little bit stuck

i am so glad that every single platform i utilize to sustain my career is owned by private companies that can fundamentally alter or even completely destroy literally any aspect of any of those platforms on a whim without ever once consulting me or anyone else who uses them

it's so cool that i and countless other "independent contractors" create multi-billion-dollar value for these companies and yet are treated like incidental flies in the financial ointment. this is good, to me

39,000 covid deaths in the united states since june 1 2022

me, who has lived paycheck to paycheck since 2009: i can't wait to give the multibillion dollar disney corporation literally any of money

this moment really goes to show that posting is at its best when everyone has time to rehearse

wow hearing a first-hand account of what army recruiters get up to sure is something!!!

"get a real job" i say in between grueling shifts of moving numbers around on a spreadsheet

living in america is so cool right now specifically. dems treat a means-tested tax credit like it's better than the new deal, the gop decries the policy as flagrant anti-patriotic marxism, and literally everyone else has covid, 2 jobs, and cannot pay any bill

it's never been clearer that the people who run this country do not live in this country
