That senior staff memo also suggested that union organizing is inappropriate for tech professionals. “Forming a union is a great tool—for marginalized workers,” it stated. “We’re concerned with the misappropriation of unions for use by privileged workers.”
In another memo sent to all employees and subsequently leaked, these staff members state “the effort to unionize Kickstarter hasn’t felt transparent or fair” and said they “hope well-intentioned, good faith dialogue with executives and a specific list of issues from unsatisfied coworkers can get us to a better place […] before resorting to something as extreme as a union.”
Big Tech went all in on the revolution without remembering that the revolution never ends.
The world is watching as US allies feel disappointed when they saw the country that they used to admire descend into a huge mess. Chinese observers said this is a “Waterloo to US international image,” and the US has totally lost legitimacy and qualification to interfere in other countries’ domestic affairs with the excuse of “democracy” in the future.
I’m lead to believe the above paragraph follows at the end of the article summary at the top. Not sure why the world would be shocked by riots in the U.S. It was basically the only other story besides Corona-chan all summer. Oh, because it was supposedly Trump supporters? Yeah, it wasn’t Trump supporters.
The entire “free world” is horrified? How droll. Guess what, we were the last man standing. Our “allies” are all ghosts. Trump was the one pulling back from war everywhere, all the time. Now that he’s gone, it’s going back to business as usual. Well, it was kinda nice while it lasted.
Really, why the hell should our military be protecting other “democracies” at our expense? Trump was right about NATO, I’ll give him that as well.
Interestingly, Fast Company noticed that Google has yet to update any of its iPhone and iPad apps since Apple’s requirement went into effect, with apps like Gmail, Chrome, and YouTube having last been updated on December 7, 2020 or prior. As a result, all Google apps still say “No Details Provided” under the new privacy section in the App Store, with a notice that “the developer will be required to provide privacy details when they submit their next app update.”
By comparison, the report notes that Google has updated several of its Android apps after December 8, including Google Maps on December 14, Google Duo on December 15, Gmail on December 16, and YouTube on December 21.
Google has yet to comment on the report, so the reason for the lack of recent iOS app updates is unconfirmed, but Fast Company makes the reasonable assumption that Google might be trying to delay revealing its privacy label information, especially after the negative attention that Facebook received over its very lengthy privacy label.
Google’s label should actually be very short, “All your base are belong to us.”
