I have difficulty inferring people's boundaries from context or social cues. I expect to always have problems with this, even if I get better at mitigation.
If this means we can't be friends, no hard feelings.
But if you are forward about your boundaries, I'll appreciate that.
I am still learning when and how to ask about boundaries in a way that isn't presumptuous. I often get it wrong when I'm distracted by interesting conversation.
🚨Urgent Indigenous Autistic Need 🚨
Zach is a medically complex autistic Ojibwe and Ponca youth, he depends heavily on his phone for communication and engagement with the world around him. His phone is broken, and his mother (also autistic, disabled and Deaf) has no way to obtain one. $300 will get him what he needs, refurbished and unlocked. Any boosts or assistance are beyond appreciated!
Something I think a lot about: in aviation, if you're landing through fog (or whatever), the standard practice is to pick ahead of time a hard limit for the altitude at which you'll do a go-around. If you don't see the runway by the time that altitude is reached, you abort the landing attempt -- no questions.
Because otherwise folks tend to keep going "I'll just give it another few seconds..." until they're way too low for safety.
This type of protocol is very, very generalizable to everyday life, and can make decision-making a lot easier.

# Software From Another World
> We undermine not only unions, but every aspect of the worker's life: AirBnB spikes rents, Uber disenfranchises drivers, a thousand streaming services reinvent cable, Amazon fucks everybody, and so on. Despite any niche expertise, these are companies made possible by software, by the lending of software labor to capitalist ends. We can choose to deny them, if we stand together.
