Yolian Ogbu on Twitter: "THINGS TO DO INSTEAD OF CALLING THE COPS (thread) *strong communities make police obsolete" / Twitter
“THINGS TO DO INSTEAD OF CALLING THE COPS
“(thread)

“*strong communities make police obsolete

“1) Don’t feel obligated to defend property–especially corporate ‘private’property. Before confronting someone or contacting the police, ask yourself if anyone is being hurt or endangered by property ’theft’ or damage. If the answer is ‘no’, then let it be

“2) If something of yours is stolen and you need to file a report, consider going to the police station instead of bringing cops into your community. You may inadvertently put someone in your neighborhood at risk

“3) If you see someone pulled over with car trouble, stop and ask if they need help of if you can call a tow truck for them. Police may give punitive and unnecessary tickets to people with car issues, target those without papers, or worse

“4) Keep a contact list of community resources like suicide hotlines. When police are contacted to ‘manage’ such situations, people with mental illness are 16 times more likely to be killed by cops than those without mental health challenges

“5) Check your impulse to call the police on someone ‘suspicious’. Is their race, gender, ethnicity, class, or housing situation influencing your choice? Such calls can be death sentences for many people

“shoutout to #winnipegpolicecauseharm for putting together these community alternatives to policing”

Nicole Cliffe on Twitter: "A note on when companies offer or switch to offering “unlimited time off”!" / Twitter
(Nicole Cliffe on the perils of “unlimited vacation”:)

“A note on when companies offer or switch to offering ‘unlimited time off’!

“This is a tool very very commonly used to avoid letting employees save unused PTO days which in some states they can cash out when leaving a job, as part of their compensation.

“‘Unlimited’ PTO is worthless in the sense of having zero worth. Your boss can still choose to approve very little of it, and there’s no indication that people take MORE of it than at companies where you have, say, a specific amount of it allotted to you.

“Silicon Valley is notorious for offering ‘unlimited’ PTO, because California state law requires that ACTUAL PTO be paid out in cash in your last paycheck: https://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/faq_vacation.htm

“This is not to say that unlimited PTO policies are always bad! This is to say you should look at your state’s laws and see if your company is trying to look generous while actually avoiding keeping a tangible liability on their books.

“My very strong advice is that if your company switches to unlimited PTO and tries to disappear time you have previously banked, DEFINITELY check your state laws to see if they have to pay you out. In California, once earned, it’s yours, but companies may not volunteer that!

“Short form: no one loves you and it’s all a shell game, get yours.

“Oh, and depending on your job and location, even if your company which has switched to unlimited is NOT legally required to make you whole for your previously banked PTO, you MAY be able to negotiate for all or some of it.

“Because it’s a real fuck-you to the employees and can cost them more money in sudden turnover.

“If I were God Emperor of Dune, all high school students would take a six hour seminar on basic employment law in order to learn what very, very few rights they possess in the workplace AND how and when to seek redress when they are violated.

“Note that the fact that California has Better employment laws is not an unqualified win in and of itself: lots of companies avoid having CA offices/explicitly won’t hire remote employees who are California-based, which is very much legal.”

“Pro-tip: if you get fired and apply for unemployment and it’s rejected, please know that it only means your company auto-rejected it, which the unemployment people just go along with, and you are quite likely to get it on appeal.

“Like insurance companies, they know that rejecting every claim the 1st time ensures a certain number of people will just give up/go away. But the appeals process is when you can drag out why you’re eligible (just being mediocre at your job/being fired does not disqualify you.)

“Now, you may NOT be eligible (gross misconduct, haven’t worked there long enough, etc.) but mostly if you work for a company and get fired and didn’t torch the place, you’re entitled to UI and you should get it.

“But yes, the initial decline means ONLY that your company said you’re not eligible, there has been no investigation by the unemployment insurance people. That will not start until you actually appeal.

“(YMMV based on your location, obviously, but never ever accept the first refusal of your unemployment insurance claim.)

“Also, your right to discuss working conditions and your own pay without consequences or retaliation (NO MATTER WHAT THE EMPLOYEE HANDBOOK SAYS) is one of the few absolute goodnesses of American employment law, and most of you are eligible.

“These are your rights (I got told off by my boss for discussing a raise I got at a party not on work premises, which, in retrospect, was bullshit and if I had gotten fired or demoted over it, illegal): https://www.nlrb.gov/rights-we-protect/rights/employee-rights”

Jonathon Owen on Twitter: "Here's the breakdown (quotes from https://t.co/w1U1tPC8uV)." / Twitter
If you should need a breakdown of the lawful good / neutral good / chaotic good (etc) classes, this thread has some handy definitions:

“Lawful Good: The Chicago Manual of Style
“A lawful good character ‘combines a commitment to oppose evil with the discipline to fight relentlessly.’ And boy howdy, is Chicago relentless—the thing is over 1,100 pages!

“Neutral Good: The MLA Handbook
“‘A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do.’ Look, the MLA Handbook certainly tries to do what’s right, even if it can’t make up its mind sometimes. Remember that whole print/web/ebook nonsense? Enough said.

“Chaotic Good: The Buzzfeed Style Guide
“‘A chaotic good character acts as his conscience directs him with little regard for what others expect of him.’ Buzzfeed has great entries on gender, race, and disability and would probably recommend singular ‘they’ in that last sentence.

“Lawful Neutral: The Elements of Style
“‘A lawful neutral character acts as law, tradition, or a personal code directs her.’ The Elements of Style, a.k.a. Strunk & White, certainly upholds a lot of laws and traditions. Are they good laws? Look, I don’t see how that’s relevant.

“True Neutral: The Wikipedia Style Guide
“A true neutral character ‘doesn’t feel strongly one way or the other when it comes to good vs. evil or law vs. chaos.’ Wikipedia doesn’t care for your edit wars. Just pick a style and stick with it.

“Chaotic Neutral: Wired Style
“A chaotic neutral character ‘avoids authority, resents restrictions, and challenges traditions.’ Wired Style has a chapter called ‘screw the rules.’ It’s also printed on day-glow yellow paper, because screw your eyes too.

“Lawful Evil: The New Yorker
“A lawful evil character ‘plays by the rules but without mercy or compassion.’ The New Yorker uses jarring diereses to prevent misreading and sprinkles commas based on a hyperliteral idea of what ‘restrictive’ means. Tell me that’s not mercilessly evil.

“Neutral Evil: The Associated Press Stylebook
“‘A neutral evil villain does whatever she can get away with.’ The AP Stylebook used to say that two things couldn’t collide unless they were both in motion. They only changed it when @johnemcintyre finally called them on that BS.

“Chaotic Evil: Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association
“A chaotic evil character is ‘arbitrarily violent’ and ‘unpredictable.’ Have you ever seen APA-style citations? ‘Arbitrarily violent’ is the best description of that volume/issue number mess that I’ve seen.”

German Lopez on Twitter: "I put up a piece today about why I went from skeptical of unions to very supportive of them. You should read it: https://t.co/04lxTKRJ86. But I wanted to do a thread on the seven big reasons I changed my mind." / Twitter
“I put up a piece today about why I went from skeptical of unions to very supportive of them. You should read it: https://vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/8/19/20727283/unions-good-income-inequality-wealth….

“But I wanted to do a thread on the seven big reasons I changed my mind.

“1) A lot of my shift came from good organizing. Policeman @alex_kirshner took me out for coffee and heard out my concerns, addressing them piece by piece. @DLind, @kthalassa, and
“@dylanmatt talked me through a lot of my concerns as well.

“2) One problem is I took a pretty selfish and naive view toward unions. I wondered how a union could benefit me at a company where I already had a pretty good experience. Well, I quickly realized that my experience could seriously change with one corporate reshuffle or sale.

“3) Even from a selfish perspective, though, unions can help! The research, leveraging data that goes nearly a full century back, is pretty consistent on this: Unions produce a salary premium for the people in them.

“4) Unions are also an antidote for economic inequality. Based on the research, the decline of unions explains about 10 to 30 percent of the recent rise in income inequality. Depending on where and when, unions could be a dominant factor.

“5) Unions also balance out politics, creating a political apparatus that can counter corporate and elite voices that are so powerful in Washington, DC, and state capitols. One study found anti-union ‘right to work’ laws lead to fewer progressive electoral and policy victories.

“6) I worried that, even with these benefits, unions may have big downsides, like causing less employment. Some studies do find a small effect on employment, but others can’t detect an effect at all. That suggests the effect is small — and that has to be weighed with the benefits.

“7) Finally, I worried about a union protecting its worst members. This is something we’ve seen with police unions, which do all sorts of outrageous nonsense after high-profile shootings. But this quote from Marissa Brookes at UC Riverside gets at why I’m not so worried anymore.”

“Salary transparency: What is it?

“* Names and exact salaries, along with other benefits
“* Not a summary of salary data
“* Not salary ranges

“Salary transparency: Who should push for it?

“* Cis straight white men
“* Use your privilege (ie: easier for white women than WOC)
“* Do it on your way out (minimimze risk)
“* Don’t fight a losing battle (not worth emotional stress)

“Salary transparency: Reasons companies are against

“* ‘Protect employees’ privacy’
“* ‘Salaries aren’t equitable, and we don’t have the money to fix it.’
“* ‘Salaries aren’t equitable, and we just don’t want to fix it.’

“Addressing the issue of employee privacy re: salary transparency

“* It’s the norm in most industries
“* ‘Stigma of talking about money is kind of a rich-person thing; people without money talk about it ALL the time.’
“* Discomfort is sign of inequity

“Tips for encouraging salary transparency: Make your leadership feel like heroes 🙌🏻
“‘You have a chance to change the norms of the entire tech industry!’
“(Conversely, making them feel like villains for not doing it will get you nowhere.)

“Q: Why isn’t publishing salary ranges enough?
“A: Because it masks the exponential and long-term effects that even a $5,000 difference can make over length of career.

“Whoa!
“‘The entire country of Norway has salary transparency … and Norway hasn’t shut down.’”

“‘Technically, you cannot be fired for sharing your salary (with coworkers) … that does not mean that you _won’t_ be fired for it.’
“- @nancy_hawa, referencing @EricaJoy’s efforts to change the culture of pay inequity at Google #WSC2019Conf

“How to make salaries transparent:

“* Actually publish them, with advance notice
“* Outline a clear process for providing feedback and sharing feelings
“* Announce a firm date for when salaries will be adjusted, and backdate raises if process takes longer

“When @nancy_hawa’s company did this, _every woman_ got a raise, and the highest pay bump went to a queer woman of color. #WSC2019Conf”

“@randileeharper on Home Assistant / Hass:

“I’m about to do a thread about tech stuff and im drinking coffee while trying to figure out how to say the things i wanna say without dunking too hard on a piece of software way too many of y’all love (and by extension, dunking on y’all).

“The thread isn’t even about 90s Linux culture. But it’s the best comparison I have. And it was b a d

“Ok. Here goes.

“IoT is fun and all, but for the home consumer, it’s really, really, really really really really really bad if you try to do anything beyond hue + alexa. and i don’t see a way out of this hellhole in the near future.

“I used to love fucking around with things. I wanted to customize shit. I wanted to know the nuts and bolts of how things worked. this is why unix was great. this is why linux was fun back in the 90s. but it wasn’t consumer ready.

“Now I’m old as fuck and I just want shit to work because I don’t want to spend my time working on dumb shit that’s already solved but iot is intriguing enough to me that my reservations about going beyond using a pretty frontend UI/good user experience were put aside.

“But it was still a journey where I tried to take the path of least resistance - and that decision was made after first attempting to run home assistant on an rpi 3b. Because fuck Home Assistant. Seriously. Fuck that piece of software, fuck the people that made it, fuck it all.

“First off, people refer to Home Assistant as Hass. But http://hass.io isn’t actually home assistant. It’s like this distribution of Home Assistant. And the instructions aren’t interchangable. But different sites that rank high in Google interchangably link between the two.

“And this wasn’t really clear to me when I first tried home assistant. Plus I wanted to install it on my rpi without actually hooking up a monitor because I’m fucking lazy and I’d rather hand edit config files to make shit work, but guess what? Linux is still a piece of shit.

“And even modifying the files like instructions said to do didn’t allow me to be lazy. Because systemd is a thing. Because networkmanager is a thing. What the fuck is network manager? I don’t even know. I don’t care. Don’t tell me what it is. I really don’t care. It’s garbage.

“So someone told me about Hubitat, and I really liked Hubitat! It’s so much better than SmartThings. The development community for it seemed kind of rad, but the documentation for writing apps was lacking, to say the least.

“As far as user experiences go, Hubitat was the best I’d seen. But it still isn’t end-user friendly. And the more Zwave devices I added, the more apps I added, the more it slowed down until eventually I’d have to reboot it every few days.

“I think one of the apps or custom device drivers was slowing it down, but there’s no access to the backend, so I simply couldn’t tell. So, okay. Let’s give Home Assistant a try again. I got an rpi 4. At this point my rpi3 was being used as NAT/DNS.

“And I hooked it up to a monitor and wasn’t lazy and somehow managed to get it installed just by using pip, so that was nice. There’s a lot of documentation, but I don’t really like the way it’s put together. It’s VERY not-user-friendly.

“The best way to learn how to do things on Home Assistant is to look at other people’s configurations. and the more i dove into the Home Assistant forums and documentation, the more I was reminded of 90’s Linux.

“Which is to say - this is a community built for neckbeard white dudes with too much fukkin time on their hands by neckbeard white dudes with too much fukkin time on their hands. At least I didn’t see anyone using WAF, so that’s +1 for Home Assistant over Hubitat.

“People do a lot with Home Assistant. Not really what I think it was intended to do in the first place? And just because you can doesn’t necessarily mean you should… But they did some really cool things. I see the appeal.

“But unlike 90s Linux, no one is targeting ‘Home Assistant in every home!’ so they are focusing way too much on the cool things and not enough on the ease of use and that is what I mean by neckbeard white dudes with too much fukkin time on their hands.

“If you want a market to grow, you make it accessible. with accessibility comes users. with users comes more vendors making more cool shit. This is what advances the market. This is what gives you more cool toys to play with.

“I’ve been running Home Assistant for a few weeks. It took quite a while to get my Zwave shit all moved over. I haven’t even started on my Zigbee stuff yet. but then I started playing with Hass in an AWS instance.

“And it’s nice! It does add some accessibility. It makes a lot of things easier. It adds a lot of cool shit that is dumb as fuck but also really nice?

“Like a visual studio code-like editor in the browser. Did I mention you have to SSH in and hand-edit config files to do like… anything? And then you have to restart the entire godamn thing. yeah, some parts you can restart in the browser, but what the fuck is ‘core’?

“It gives you easy access to add a lot of apps that people have written.

“But Home Assistant eats CPU like what the fuck dude why what are you even doing calm down

“Anyone that says they run Home Assistant on some weakass device is lying or not doing much with it.

“I’m not even running any of the cool extensions but i’ve got enough Zwave traffic that my rpi 4 is usually at 2 load when it’s just doing normal shit. Nodered eats a little cpu, but Home Assistant is greedy.

“I’ve got it working, which was hours. HOURS. HOURRRRRS. DAYS. of my life.

“I do not give up my time to any one piece of technology easily. And my config still only has a few automations.

“So now I’m having this tech existential crisis. Because i have things working, more or less. but Hass looks cool and I kind of want the visual studio code editor in the browser and I could do it without Hass (it’s a user extension) but it wouldn’t be as easy and Hass looks rad

“But why? What’s the point? What’s the point of any of it? I have it working. I don’t need this. It’s probably just going to bog down my rpi 4 more, and what’s next, do I go and get a fucking 1u server for my apartment? I AM NOT LIVING THAT LIFE ANYMORE.

“I’m probably still going to end up getting another SD card so I can try to pop Hass onto this rpi 4 and have the option of reverting to my former config if it fucks up, and honestly I hate myself for being like this.
