@risabee that's the internal site. Here's the customer facing one:

@dixongexpat I do most of my notes and writing in text files, editable with anything via sync. For sheets I tend to use CSV because it can be edited in a text editor, though it has limitations

@h no decentralization without decentralized ownership

@mattcropp @samtoland @dixongexpat Ooh, maybe we can sue them. does California have such a statute?

@samtoland @mattcropp

Wow, this is really interesting. Strikes me as akin to Associated Press—a media co-op made up of corporate members. But could be really, really important. On the other hand, it's not clear that there's any actual co-op ownership or governance involved. We might need to mount a campaign against this. I just wrote to Adobe to find out more.

@samtoland @pre Running the business is something Wolff's book is virtually silent on. It's focused on the purity of a certain political economy, not at all on what kinds of enterprise might a) activate human initative and creativity, b) thrive under market conditions, c) transform those markets to enable more democratic enterprises to thrive as well.

@pre @samtoland I find his fixation on "productive" workers (who somehow do not include custodians and marketers and other necessary contributors) to be profoundly mistaken. And in general the workerist point of view is depressing for anyone who wants to live for anything other than waged labor someday.
