Malaso escarpment along the Great Rift Valley in Samburu county.

So I bought an iPhone SE after I shattered screen on my OnePlus 3 again. I've been using it for a few weeks.

Android has KDE Connect, but its being broken with *every* *single* *update*. Whereas closed and proprietary iPhone just lets me download photos over PTP.

I thought by using android I'd be closer to idea of having general-purpose computer in my pocket. In reality this isn't what is happening, and as far as *the thing that lets me take photos and make notes* iPhone is better.

I'm talking about this piece -- theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/

Pls Don't read, it's bad.

I thought it would be about internals of fox news, but instead it's about privileged conservative white people whining about being misunderstood, and I keep seeking articles like that for the past months or so, and all of it is just pathetic, and boring and doesn't provide any insight at all.

I started reading The Atlantic around 2016 because they seem to find either upside or normalcy among everyone's gloom. Now I can't opinion pieces any more as it just appears to be really boring conservative whining.

Maybe they've always been right-of-center, and maybe in 2016 their opinions helped to make sense of what is happening, but now it looks like the world just went past them.

Everyone saying that pride month was cancelled, but it actually feels like the most genuine pride month in a long time.
No corporate floats or rainbow branding. Just people angry and pushing to change the world.

In light of the cancellation of this year's Gathering Of The Juggalos due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I would like to propose the "ICP Responsible Leadership Test" as a metric for evaluating corporate and political leadership going forward. Nobody gets to be in charge of anything if they are not demonstrably better at managing safety risk than The Insane Clown Posse.
