I fucking hate my job now.
It was okay for a long, long while. Certainly less stressful than working at the biting squad but it certainly had its share of trouble.
But now all of the low lying brush-fires that consume the company are threatening my very sanity. I dread going to work so much I try to sleep as much as possible, which is the opposite of me staying up until 0300 on teh twitter derp corn or playing videogames.
Hopefully something good will pop-up soon because THIS IS SO, SO BAD.
How bad, you ask? We have clients who are literal nazi sympathizers. I asked my Pa about it and he says that technically makes me a nazi collaborator. The kicker? The boss is Jewish.
Hopefully next job I’ll actually be given a chance to move up? Either way, I’m over this place.

A modest proposal to improve Twitter—and perhaps the world
I went ahead and made the change on tweetdeck, the interface I use on the desktop:
But this doesn’t take any effect on my mobile client of choice, Talon, and it’s a total pain in the ass to go hunting down a tweet that scrolled off the screen.
Meaning I had to rethink my approach. In the next few days I’ll be disabling retweets for pretty much everyone I notice retweeting more than they actually tweet or reply to other’s tweets. Just in the time I wrote up this blog post I disabled RTs for ten people. The threshold seems to be when someone hits the RT button for more than 4 tweets out of every 10.
It’d be nice if twitter enabled an option to disable RTs globally and then you decide if you want to turn them on for someone… but this does not favor their advertising model since you’re purposely limiting the amount of viral content making it to your timeline regardless of the client you’re using.
This is probably a good thing, all in all.
The same cities that struggle to provide affordable housing today eliminated their critical-but-maligned flexible housing stock after World War II.
This is important. I live by myself and I am paying over a third of my monthly income in rent and the housing situation in Minneapolis only keeps getting worse. It is likely I will not be able to afford purchasing a home within city limits for the next 10 years and landlords keep rising their rents, advancing the gentrification troubling my part of the city.

There is something quietly comforting about a bowl of miso in front of the computer while you watch life scroll by on twitter.
