This North Carolina bill is every bit as completely insane and horrific as advertised. As written, it mandates that government workers have to report children to their parents for "gender nonconformity."


In the vaccine roll-out, apart from the competent and efficient administrators, the winners are these slick tech wizards who have built platforms that scrape websites for information on available vaccine appointments.

We're All Infrastructure Now


Paid leave is infrastructure.
Child care is infrastructure.
Caregiving is infrastructure.


Today North Carolina opens up all age categories 16+ for vaccination!

Limiting and capping food delivery commissions:

-fewer orders
-fewer restaurants on apps
-less💰for delivery drivers
