Went out for Chinese. Got this in the fortune cookie.

I love all the extremely work-friendly coffee shops in Taipei. Some of them feel like full-on coworking spaces. Minus the membership fees and boring office interior, of course.
Also, it's completely normal to find multiple redundant wifi networks in coffee shops, sometimes with 100 Mb/s downstream and 50 Mb/s up.
Technically, Mid-Autumn Festival is tomorrow. But, because it falls on a Monday this year (it's a lunar-calendar holiday), it makes a welcome long weekend. The #Taiwanese typically celebrate with family gatherings & barbecuing. (Incidentally, the BBQing is a recent tradition, started by a BBQ-sauce company a few decades ago). Standing on the balcony, I can hear the laughter & fireworks from the festivities. It's easily my favorite Chinese holiday. I compare it to Thanksgiving in North America.

This book seems to confirm what that NYT op ed said, the real heroes of the Trump presidency are the people working there trying to stop him from burning down America - Cohn, Tillerson, Porter, Priebus etc.
Imagine if he didn't have these 'handlers' slow walking his bad decisions or making bad executive orders disappear from his desk so they can't be signed.

(Without the faintest hint of irony) "Google bosses have forced employees to delete a confidential memo circulating inside the company that revealed explosive details about a plan to launch a censored search engine in China."
"The memo identifies at least 215 employees who appear to have been tasked with working full-time on Dragonfly, a number it says is “larger than many Google projects.” It says that source code associated with the project dates back to May 2017"
It's amazing how quickly and shamelessly those who enact censorship turn that censorship against any discussion of censorship itself. Shame upon #Google for abandoning democracy human rights and open markets, the very principles to which their little startup owes every dollar of it's success.

// Now might be the time I really need to sell my stock in Google. Helping China is not helping Taiwan or the rest of the internet. Making money on the back of oppression of the Chinese people is not Ok.

Not sure even a million years in prison for this is harsh enough. Sometimes cases like this make me rethink the death penalty
