150 years ago today, on April 6, 1871, armed participants in the revolutionary Paris Commune seized the guillotine that was stored near the prison in Paris, smashed it into pieces, and burned it in a bonfire.

The guillotine is not a symbol of liberation.

You ever think about how recycling is a sham, and is really just a way to launder "sending garbage to a landfill in another country"?

Reminder that Alcoholics Anonymous is a Christian faith, not science, based organization that was founded in the 30s at a time when we understood almost nothing about the actual mechanical function of the brain and addiction, and that their 12 steps have become so ingrained in the US medical system and culture that most people and medical professionals dont realize there are other better researched options available now.

And this will be a huge service sector unionization win, probably the biggest since UPS in the 90's--this could be a template for the industry, which is seeing drives in multiple sectors from food and retail to programming. This could be a dam that breaks, especially if the PRO act passes (which could clear the way for workers oppressed by the gig industry and other companies that use the independent contractor scam [stares intensely at unionization drives bubbling within FedEx])

If I've learned anything this last year, it's that we're not guaranteed anything and we should try to live out our dreams while we're alive to live them out. It is in that spirit that I reached out to a local college radio station (KPSU in Portland, Oregon) and proposed a new show; my proposal was accepted pending submission of a prerecorded pilot episode. The show is called Hack the Airwaves and I aim to explore various facets of hacker culture, hacker ethics, and the multitudes of kinds of hackers there are out there and the amazing projects they're working on.

Now that I've announced that here, I have a request for all the hackers out there (including and especially those who see hacking as much bigger than just infosec). I plan for my pilot episode to be called "What is a Hacker?" and for that, I need help. Contact me if you're interested in participating by sending me a ~1-7 minute recording of what being a hacker means to you.
