Would appreciate any signal boost on this. @upwave is a great company to work for, and I *know* AU has good people… but our hiring process in AU isn’t finding them.

Repeating an earlier call - I'm still looking for a Full stack engineer to come work with me on my team at @upwave - Java/Groovy + React. Remote position for any AU-compatible timezone. Anyone want to come work with a great team?

Marcus Lush: Bob, bob you gotta get with the programme mate ...
people [can't get treatment] cause the hospitals are inundated with unvaccinated who have got covid.
You're not making any sense.

Bob: Well I want an answer.

ML: Well go online and get an answer. You don't want an answer, you just want to go on the radio and be a bit of a tool.

Which is to say that every choice is a political choice, an economic choice, a moral choice.

Every proprietary tool we normalize helps build or enforce a monopoly.

Every piece of DRM we accept is a blow to the right to repair, the right to own anything.

There are often good, valid reasons for doing this. There are also lots not great, but easy to justify reasons.

I feel a screed coming on, I should probably stop that.
