I generally think people's language loves/hates are unreasonable. But. I hate JavaScript, and think that's reasonable; I can talk about why. I hate Ruby, it's unreasonable, I'm at peace with it.

I hate Python, very little experience with it. I don't know why I hate it. I want to get to a place where I'm at peace with however I end up feeling about it.

Is there anyone that uses #briar that wants to try it with me?
There is not one person I know that uses briar or will ever try it with me.

Briar is a concept. It works fully offline so if anything ever happens to the internet then you will be able to message people.

NYCers have a new ridehailing alternative to Uber: The Drivers Cooperative is a driver-owned, app-based ride-hailing service that pays drivers more, charges riders less, and pays out any profits to driver-owners as periodic dividends.

Platform cooperativism is a powerful antidote to app-based gig work: a way to provide customers with the convenience that made app-based services so popular while putting workers in control of their days, schedules and conditions.
