facebook, corps, advertising 

@djsundog well what cd be cool was if there was a kind of chain-reaction of boycotts until there where no corps left to pause on giving each other piles of money

@djsundog It's like, OK, you want to be a capitalist, be a capitalist. Fucking own it. Just stop with the double-speak already.

@djsundog How awesome would it be for some C-level exec to come out with a press release reading: 1/4

@djsundog And yet...

> As Advertisers Revolt, Facebook Commits To Flagging 'Newsworthy' Political Speech That Violates Policy

How ... coincidental. And, you know, minimal. But this _is_ Facebook after all.

I am looking forward to this record coming out partly because I feel like there is no way that anything like this would ever happen in today's Palo Alto. Curious if @djsundog has thoughts on the matter

facebook, corps, advertising 

Coca-Cola is stopping all advertising on social media for at least 30 days. Unilever the same through at least the end of the year. Many other corps doing similar.

Doesn't help us get rid of the corps, but I mind not one bit if they get rid of Facebook before they go too.

I mean...

In a recent memo to advertisers obtained by CNBC, Facebook’s VP of global marketing solutions, Carolyn Everson, said “boycotting in general is not the way for us to make progress together.”

“I also really hope by now you know that we do not make policy changes tied to revenue pressure,” she said in the memo. “We set our policies based on principles rather than business interests.”

c'mon, carolyn. c'mon.

remember how I got that box of CDs that looked like an intern lifted them from inventory at a distributor?

one of them is autographed :blobeyes:

the existence of influencers implies the existence of exfluencers.

I feel unreasonably satisfied with myself any time I hear about someone doing something shitty enough to get a preemptive block and I find that I've already blocked their whole instance. Like, to the point where I mentally give myself a nodding Redford gif.

Just want to give a shout-out to Audacity, which as far as I'm concerned is the open source creative tool that actually achieves the promise of open source creative tools. It gets significantly better every release and releases every few months, and the UI gets better and better (the key thing most open source tools don't achieve). If you tried Audacity a few years ago or more and decided it was unstable or clunky to use, download the latest version. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Good morning.

Local news is showing a protestor laying on the road between a bucket loader and CHOP.

I hope they have their towel. Ford should be along any moment.
