As ever, the only way to have a good music library is to manage it yourself, instead of outsourcing it to a multinational tech company.

I found this in the credits of a television show, of all places. The music folks at HBO are really on top of things.

I studied political science and wound up working in computers. I think it was more fun to learn political science than computer science, but would have been a lot less fun to work in the former field. Technology is definitely the place to be right now.

I don't know a lot about Mayor Pete (other than his identity politics) and this article completely turned me off from him: https://www.currentaffairs.org/2019/03/all-about-pete

He really doesn't belong in the same breath as Andrew Yang or Bernie Sanders.

Not going to happen. Even setting aside the thoroughly racist origins of modern American policing , law enforcement is effectively a right-wing gang. The FBI is too busy persecuting nonviolent environmental activists, Black Lives Matter, and other left-wing groups to recognize the growing threat of right-wing extremism in their ranks and in the country at large.

    He said too many homes have been built in Turkey.

Hardly. The economy in Turkey is simply suffering under an authoritarian government.

I'm also reading Bad Blood right now. It's an excellent book. I think Theranos exemplified everything wrong with the technology sector right now.

King of Tokyo is like a better version of Yahtzee with cartoon monsters.

Republicans have attempt to frame this as a trial, with a corresponding burden of proof, and politicize any attempts to (correctly) frame this as an interview for a job.

The apps here are a good start: https://fossdroid.com/ You'll find alternatives or replacements for most things.

You can follow YouTube channels via RSS using your own feed reader, and watch the videos via a 3rd party app. That cuts down on essentially all of the YouTube junk, like comments and recommended videos, and significantly limits their tracking.
