"I’ve learned that I don’t fit neatly into 140 or 280 characters, or an “about me” section, or even an entire website. And I don’t have to or ― at least today ― want to. No one, online or off, could ever possibly condense their worth, their identity or their impact into gigabytes and pixels and code. And knowing that feels infinitely better than any number of favorites or likes or retweets ever could."
Seen on LinkedIn: "You get paid for your value, not for your time" and it may be the white malest thing I have ever read. 🤔

Discovered the podcast Terrible, Thanks for Asking this week. Really deep, powerful stories and the host is pretty amazing. Worth your attention.
Folks in Portland might want to kick the tires, too. Sounds like they have a conference coming there in November.
hey if this post gets 1000 boosts then i'll be ashamed of a thousand of you
So, I'm having a conversation about the value of #FairTrade with a fellow who is advocating for the "nice capitalists" to swoop in and do a better job. He shared the linked research from London on the fair trade coffee's impact on African growers. Anyone know anything about the study, the agency, etc?
(Side note that I didn't know so many people hated Fair Trade. Curious as to why.)
USPL SCOTUS Personal pity party Vulgarity (No triggers) Show more
So yesterday's SCOTUS news was a final, roundhouse kick in the balls in a truly shitty week of headlines. So, this pescatarian-trending vegetarian got in his car, drove to the grocery store and bought a four meat pizza. Then I went home and ate the whole fucking thing.
Makes no sense AT ALL to do that, but the rant/pity party is over and I am moving on.
What we gonna build today, world?
USPOL - Harley - Tax Reform (No triggers) Show more
"Tax reform changed our treatment of income American companies earn overseas. Under the new system companies pay far lower US taxes on money earned from overseas production. To put it another way, we just created a multi-billion dollar public giveaway for companies that move production out of the US."
Interesting angle on the Harley announcement this week.
