Yeah I was gonna say "well, I don't know that we want our employees to tell us to fuck off" but yeah, a few of 'em get real strident about stuff just because "strident" is where they live and you're right, we roll our eyes and smooth back their fur and pat them on their heads and let them come around to the thing that we knew wasn't anathema to them, it was just new and it's going to be okay. And yeah, every major decision we've had to make that impacts the way our hires work or live has been workshopped extensively 'cuz frankly? The less we have to do to keep the place running the more time we have to do other shit. Managing unhappy people sucks. We've never had to do it where the cause of the unhappiness was us, and I'ma bust my ass to keep it that way.

You're a talented guy with a diverse set of interests and if you apply for a bunch of random shit by saying "my opportunities for career growth are stunted under new management" who knows what you'll find. I mean, shoot the moon. Go apply to be an astronaut or something. Map the Marianas Trench. Establish a bicycle collective in Vanuatu.

I reckon there's going to be... a lot of civil planning in Ukraine in another 18-24 months. Future-shaping amounts.
