general mills pivot to video. all the 90s cereal commercials available as a streaming video channel for your roku

I honestly don't know if I'm suffering from burnout, or if I'm just really depressed again. Probably a little of column A, a little of column B...

The sheer number of talks about burnout at tech conferences (including ones I've given) lead me to believe that every talk should just be one slide that says "Smash Capitalism". #allthingsopen

Maybe y'all don't. I'm a very old person by Mastodon standards.

A worker owned taxi #coop in Southend has grown from 6 to 70 drivers.

tired of feeling broken all the time. tired of feeling tired and sad. i don't like my job or many of the things about my life but don't feel like i can do anything about it. don't want to be on meds anymore. want to go back to bed. embarrassed. worthless.

Feeling a lot better this afternoon. Maybe that's light at the end of this tunnel.
