  2. @strypey Yes, but optimising the software for corporate use means de-optimising for other uses. In Evan's defense, apparently there's something about # corporate law that makes an IPO practically compulsory at a certain point. Then you're on the road to ruin.

  4. @strypey The # showered Marshall Plan $ on post-war Europe because they knew the $ would come home. It was more an indirect domestic industry subsidy than foreign aid.

  5. @strypey During WWI IWW members in #, # and elsewhere were rounded up and imprisoned (or worse) in large numbers. If the NSA has Facebook's data on members & sympathisers of activist groups, why wouldn't it be used in some future process of "extreme vetting"?

  14. @kat She seems fine, but without preferential voting in the # (as we have in #) a vote can't "degrade gracefully", as we say in web development, to the least-worst candidate from the duopoly. So she's a symbolic protest vote in safe districts & not an option in marginal ones.
