It occurs to me that I really should set up separate American and Canadian circles for my posts. I can't imagine people in the US much care that our government is adopting Republican voter suppression tactics.

ens of thousands of students hit the streets of Montreal, Quebec to protest higher education budget cuts and increasing tuition. Police have declared the march illegal and have begun arrests. Canada's corporate media is failing to report this massive uprising. Share to support the students!

One of the ways Google+ is not like FB: My stream isn't polluted with people's "achievements" in video games. A little app (that I shall not name because I don't want to give them any more publicity) seems to want to change that. If you decide to share your video game "accomplishments" here on Google+ just know you won't be sharing them with me for long.

Dammit Amazon. Brutally long shifts and constantly-increasing, eventually impossible, productivity targets that, if missed, result in firing. This is the Amazon culture.

Now I know why they have the low low prices. Gotta go close my Amazon account. 
 
Well....shit

It's working. They may not have acted yet, but they see public opinion moving on income inequality. The question seems to be, will they spend millions on PR or millions on raising wages?

An excellent primer on how Internet networks actually connect, and the dangers of monopoly.
