I am very thankful for the welcome I have had in this instance / community. However after some searching and trying things, in a rationalizing exercise, I am migrating / merging this account with the one I have in witches.live. Thank you for the welcome and the good vibe!

My first picture book is out! It's called Poesy the Monster Slayer and it's an epic tale of bedtime-refusal, toy-hacking and monster-hunting, illustrated by Matt Rockefeller. It's the monster book I dreamt of reading to my own daughter.

My latest novel is Attack Surface, a sequel to my bestselling Little Brother books. @washingtonpost called it "a political cyberthriller, vigorous, bold and savvy about the limits of revolution and resistance."

Of all the dysfunctions of the famously cursed US healthcare system, few are so obviously a total scam as "surprise billing." Here's how that works: you go to a hospital (often its ER) that is covered by your insurer, and then, despite this, you get a giant bill. Surprise!

How can a hospital covered by your insurer hit you - and not your insurer - with a bill?

The PE "investor" actually calls the shots, and any doctor "owner" who bucks the system gets fired from their own medical practice.

This worked well for PE companies during the pandemic, as they raked in millions in federal PPP loans while slashing doctors' pay and denying medical staff access to PPE.

All attempts to end surprise billing, were sabotaged by the PE giants who created it - Blackrock, KKR and co.

So in one mastodon server I use, the admin has blocked everything that contains python-requests/ to Mastodon, in order to avoid a lot of bots, and they can't unblock it, as it would unblock a lot of bots that are not good. That they would unblock it if you could make the bot so that it would sync less often and so that it would not put "python-requests/" in the User-Agent.... For that you would have to change the code of moa.party

@moaparty , one mastodon admin says, the moa party tool seems to connect mastodon and twitter from another server, a server in the middle and moa.party's IP can be blocked. Some mastodont admins block it as it pulls a lot of statuses of a user, and a lot of requests are produced; seems moa.party makes a lot of requests; too many for small servers.

The world's 125 poorest countries (2.5b people) have received zero covid vaccine doses to date. The 85 poorest countries project vaccination in 2023/24. This is #VaccineApartheid.

It's not that poor countries can't make their own vaccines. The Global South has a *lot* of vaccine production capacity. The problem is Big Pharma, which refuses to transfer the patents and know-how to repurpose those facilities for mRNA production.

Tengo los ojos quemados de tanto leer manga por internet, odio leer en pantallas, pero no venden mis mangas en formato físico en mi país :(
Ya saben, porque son mangas de lesbianismo, y en Chile no dejan llegar ese tipo de cosas, mucho menos ahora que estamos en dictadura.

imagine bragging for years (decades?) about how good you are at management and running a company and then decimating your team over the course of a week, lmfao

They say AI is going to revolutionize the world, and yet Google still needs my help identifying fire hydrants on a daily basis.
