Working from anywhere: the good, the bad, the lovely.
DHHAs someone who’ve lived the remote-work life for twenty years, it’s wonderful to see that future finally getting widely distributed.
We thought our book REMOTE: Office Not Required was too late in 2013. Turns out it might have been a bit too early!
Not because there aren’t people who actually enjoy working in an open office, there are. Quite a few, actually. But they’re in the distinct minority. The vast majority of people either dislike the …
DHHIt's not that WeWork invented the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad idea of open offices, but they did, for a brief moment, make it seem like the future of work and a $47B prospect to rent a seat in one. The least they can do is take it down with them.
The scale of suspensions, following the Cambridge Analytica scandal, was far larger than the social network had previously revealed.
DHHAnother day, another Facebook privacy scandal. Tens of thousands of apps had improper access to data ala Cambridge Analytica. FB has previously claimed only hundreds did. If you still us FB or IG, ask yourself, is any scandal enough to make you quit?
A generational reminder of the joys of living off-line.
DHH“She doesn’t like her picture taken and posted to Instagram. When I’ve done it, I say it’s because I’m just proud of them and want to showthem off. They both say that they never signed a waiver to let their likenesses be used for my promotional purposes.”
DHHI’ve read a lot of heartbreaking stories about the US medical system, but every time I read another one, I’m still left boiling with the same soup of disbelief and rage. This system doesn’t need a “tweak”, it needs to be blown up.
With the bill’s passage, California’s ride-hailing drivers, food-delivery couriers, janitors and others are set to be reclassified as employees and not contractors.
DHHCalifornia blazes the trail for gig-worker protections. The contractor loop hole that exempted Uber and others from paying minimum wages or offering vacation is closed. Amazing political victory. Bravo, CA. Bravo 👏👏
iOS security is unmatched because we take end-to-end responsibility for the security of our hardware and software.
DHHSpeaking of Apple at its worst, here's them quibbling over timing and impact of the catastrophic security holes that Google helped find. When your security is shown to be this compromised, you bow your damn head, say thank you to Google, and apologize.
A New York Times analysis of six years of search results found Apple dominated the top results for many popular search terms.
DHHThis is Apple at its absolute worst. Exploiting its monopoly control over the App Store to self-deal their own wares to the very top, at the expense of third-party makers. May the antitrust busters strike at this with furious might.
Europe’s top court has made a ruling that could affect scores of websites that embed the Facebook ‘Like’ button and receive visitors from the region. The ruling by the Court of Justice of the EU states such sites are jointly responsible for the...
DHH"EU's top court rules that sites with embedded Facebook Like buttons are responsible for data collected, must obtain user consent before data is sent to Facebook" 😍
On June 4th, Firefox will be rolling out this feature, Enhanced Tracking Protection, to all new users on by default, to make it harder for over a thousand companies to track their every move.
DHHFirefox now blocking tracker cookies by default ❤️. We must come to terms with the fact that Chrome is institutionally incapable of protecting users from surveillance capitalism, and make our browser choice accordingly.
Documents show how the company tracks and terminates workers
DHHAmazon has granted the Taylorism machines that monitor shipping-center productivity the right to automatically fire workers it deem slacking, without a need for supervisor input 😮. The algorithms are literally in charge here.
