YouTube is trying to make their algorithm better by asking for feedback from users, which is a good thing I guess. But asking "is this a good recommendation for you" and preventing me from watching the video until I tell you is kind of a dick move? Especially since your little preview doesn't let me see how long it is and it's just a logo, so I'm kind of guessing anyway.

Oh shit. That team we're "merging" with to be one team? They're so much better than us they've already put them in the team leader DL.

Well, fuck.

This team's not gonna last. I just moved to a different city, and my job's gonna disappear, and there's no security work down here. So I'm gonna have to move back.

This requires us to talk about a different kind of privacy, one that we haven’t needed to give a name to before. For the purposes of this essay, I’ll call it ‘ambient privacy’—the understanding that there is value in having our everyday interactions with one another remain outside the reach of monitoring, and that the small details of our daily lives should pass by unremembered. What we do at home, work, church, school, or in our leisure time does not belong in a permanent record. Not every conversation needs to be a deposition.

Brookline, Mass., wants to make menstrual products as routine as those other bathroom staples, and in May voted to become what it says is the first municipality in the United States to offer free tampons and pads in all of its town-owned restrooms, in places like the town hall, libraries and the recreation center. The schools are expected to follow suit.
