@ireneista and I are hosting @michelleimiller for a labor organizing chat for Alphabet employees at 6pm EDT Friday.

Google's HR and legal organization work for the company's interest, so they are not good people to ask about organizing about workplace conditions, what protections the NLRA provides, and what actions employees can take to improve working conditions in the company. (in fact, they're on the other side of the table. I should be clear I have a constructive working relationship with them, but they inherently have the company's interest in mind)

This is where coworker.org comes in -- they're a modern take on what collective bargaining and action can look like, leveraging the tools of the 21st century. And they are both past union organizers and labor activists, so they understand the regulatory landscape and how to get things done in as safe a manner as possible. [note: they are not themselves lawyers]

We're having a get-together tomorrow to chat with Michelle about how coworker.org can help us, and to answer labor organizing-related questions that we and our fellow employees may have. Note that people managers enjoy fewer protections under the NLRA, so you're not invited for your safety.

Shower thought: if a pollster went around rural America asking people if they thought “mixed-gender marriage” was okay, how many would say “no” by accident?

Color can profoundly affect the way we perceive and interact with things. Good color design can make something easy and pleasant to use; bad color design (and yes, I know several of you can think of examples) makes you want to actively avoid it.

As I'm not a visual designer, but I often need to think about the work of visual and UX designers, it's very useful to have a bunch of key ideas clearly put in one place. This article that I just found is a great summary of the key things you need to know about color design.
