uspol/media coverage 

One thing about all this election coverage that kinda makes me happy is if you watch NBC, Chuck Todd is so stoked about this interactive touch-screen electoral college map they gave him and makes it a point to demo it whenever he can. "Ooh and let's see how this obscure district in Maine is looking... And this is how that compares to 2016!!" It's kinda endearing

I now feel empowered to obliterate capitalism with these fantastic new emojis :ms_battery:

Looks like Trump is doing much better than the media predicted (stop me if any of this sounds familiar!) and even if Biden wins, Republicans still control the Senate so McConnell is going to block everything he possibly can (... stop me if any of this sounds familiar!)

important information for anyone at protests, #dcprotests, us-pol, boosts+++ 

:boost_ok:​ :boost_ok:​ :boost_ok:​

For anyone planning on protesting and especially in DC please please please remember:

always have an extra means and multiple routes to get home! Especially if you're relying on public transit or bikeshare.

Transit could be shut with little to no notice, bikeshare or scooters can be locked remotely.

#wmata service hours are currently also reduced

Please read this guide from the EFF and please take their advice seriously. Tracking devices like Stingerays (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stingray) will almost certainly be deployed.

If I had a time machine, I would go back 15 years and tell my past self, "Workplace chat applications of the future will support these special characters called 'emojis' which are little cartoon-y emoticon characters. When your coworker posts something in the next-gen chat application, you can 'react' to it with an emoji. BTW one of the emojis is a piece of poop with a face on it. Enjoy the future, kid."

thoughts on RIAA/GitHub 

If you're an artist who turned down a record deal to stay independent, I salute you.

Same if you're a programmer who didn't host your code (solely) on GitHub.

To say no to Evil Corp isn't as easy or straight forward as it sounds I'm sure, so for those who did it (possibly to your detriment) I salute you.

youtube-dl is a tool that is useful for a lot more than downloading Taylor Swift songs. It is also a handful of files that are copied locally to a lot of different computers. The RIAA must be really bored tryna play whack-a-mole with the internet using its DMCA hammer. What is the point other than to emphasize that GitHub is a bad place to host code?
