The Secretary of the Interior has ordered the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Nation's reservation to be disestablished and their land be taken out of trust.
"...on the very day that the United States has reached a record 100,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and our Tribe is desperately struggling with responding to this devastating pandemic -- the Bureau of Indian Affairs informed me that the Secretary of the Interior has ordered that our reservation be disestablished."

#OpenSource is for everyone! Some projects _can_ be socioeconomically sustainable with a fully open-source model.
However, most #OpenSource projects are kept alive by funding/employees of megacorps.
Also hat tip to @lanesweets for asking for the documentation that folks actually need to contribute! I am... very bad at thinking this kind of thing through unless people ask for specific things and are very patient with my fuckups.
I'm happy to see the work on refining #Compensated to something more broadly useful coming along.
We're up to three active contributors now; and most patches have been documentation and tests: https://github.com/zinc-collective/compensated/pulls?q=is%3Apr+is%3Aclosed+-label%3Adependencies
I even went ahead and broke down the roadmap and put it into a WIP board so that it's easier for folks to contribute: https://github.com/orgs/zinc-collective/projects/1#card-35295448
I'm shifting more to a "product" role and I'm trying to be OK with that. It's hard tho.
covid19 mask makers psa
Don't forget to put your own mask on first.
I mean this literally - if you are asymptomatic, this will _strongly_ reduce the risk that you spread the virus to the people who handle your masks on their way into initial decontamination wash. If you are making masks destined for community use, it's even more important, since they may not see a thorough decontamination wash before being handled/worn.

A $2T stimulus package passes, and we see a ~4% rebound.
It seems like an indicator even Wall Street does not think the bailout will help long-term.
I'm expecting we'll see the 200s again before we see stability.
I hope I'm wrong and 40 years of evidence that Trickle Down Economics is a mechanism for transferring wealth from the poor to the rich.
But I'm not really holding my breath.
Anyway, here's my orders for the next week.
#AnimalCrossing is a white-billionaire-simulator.
Hear me out!
1. You go to an island with a bunch of non-humans whose entire purpose is to entertain and amuse you.
2. You get praised and rewarded for literally everything you do; regardless of utility.
3. There is massive work being done behind the scenes that you never have to even think about. (15 bugs does not build a god-damn massive museum!)
4. You only ever interact with the humans you already know.
5. And it's all framed as "rugged"
