The Gig Economy - Part The Million
From email/spam hawking <something>
"""
Did you know that w-2 employees have wasted over 316,000,000 hours playing Ping Pong this year? You'll be amazed to know how many hours have been wasted in meetings!
Freelancers, on the other hand, only bill for productive time. The good news is that 20 million Americans will leave their full-time jobs to become freelancers by 2020.
"""
Riiiiight.
'Good news' indeed.
I love it when people spin the lack of health-care, safety-nets, and income as a benefit in the Brave New World of the Gig Economy.

From the Department of Epic Awesomeness
(Yeah, he's going to sign all 200,000)
 
This is quite a powerful statement.

The right to vote is a fundamental part of citizenship. I don't even agree with denying the vote to convicts serving prison sentences. But to continue to deny the vote to citizens who have served their time is unconscionable.

I thought that when the Virginia Supreme Court ruled against McAuliffe that this fight was just over.

But no, Terry McAuliffe is signing 200,000 clemency grants.

That's just pretty damned awesome.

He's signing clemency grants for the state's ex-offenders one by one.

Its big, its sports-bar-y, and unlike the version on Lavaca downtown, its airy. And its got an excellent selection of beers (and ok cocktails). The prices haven't gotten too up there, and the food, as usual, is a separate thing (you go the window on the side, and pay there). The food is bar-food (the po-boys aren't actually that good, but the buffalo-chicken is spot on). Sooo, make of this what you will. (FWIW, Ramen Jinya next door is really quite good :-) )

The best soft-serve. EVER. Seriously - it is over the top good. Mind you, the baked goods (the cheese tart!) are flippin' awesome too. But the soft-server - oh, the soft-serve - is otherworldy good. Be prepared for lines though :-)

Sapporo airport is awesome enough as it is (a fish market! more food than you can shake a stick at! Kintoya soft-serve! Cheesecake!), but this, well, takes the cake. Yeah, its all about the kids, but pretty awesomely cute too :-)

The food is good. Not great, but not bad, and perfect for the ambience ("Austin Chill"). Its been around for a while, and is an excellent place to come hang out in the sun (not in the summer!) or under the trees (in the summer), have a few inexpensive but good beers ($3 during happy hour!), eat old-school Austin Eats, and just Chill. If you're from Austin, you know the place - if you're not, its worth going to check out

So, you're in Hong Kong, and have you pick of the ∞ places that are cool, hot, chill, rocking, mellow, whatever. There really isn't that much of a reason to come here, with the exceptions of - The view is pretty cool, and - You're staying here, and - You want a nightcap That said, the service is nice, and the cocktails are really quite good.

This is - quite probably - one of the best airports to hang out in. Restaurants galore (w/ awesome ramen. Because...Sapporo), a full-on chocolate factory, all the Doraemon you could ever want, a fish market (really!), and a whole bunch more. It is brilliant! (For bonus points, a Kintoya Bake outlet, w/ the best soft-serve you'll ever have)

Probably some of the best Ramen you can get in Austin. Which is not really a back-handed compliment - you can get some excellent ramen here...for the US. That said, this also has a lot to do with your taste-buds, and the style of Ramen that you like. The broths tend to be *thick* - think tantanmen doubled down - which is not necessarily bad, if its your cup of tea. I'm not morally opposed to it, so I love the place :-)
