What we know (and don’t know) about Kamala Harris and tech policy
  • The tech bros very much need to be reigned in, but I understand a nuanced approach is necessary because it's an area where the US is still somewhat competitive, and millions of jobs are on the line.

    As for Lina Khan, I hope Kamala Harris, if elected, will give her full support on Khan's investigation into PBMs. Pharmacy Benefits Managers are one of the primary reasons prescription drugs are outrageously expensive. And up until recently, most Americans didn't even know they exist.

    Both Big Tech and Big Pharma need much stronger regulations and oversight by the feds.

  • What did you think about Biden's speech was it good or bad or inbetween?
  • Call me Captain Obvious but I thought it was very presidential.

  • Trump: Biden is a ‘fake liberal,’ but Harris is the real deal
  • LOL, what a dickweed. He sounds like an angry 5th grader. Sadly, this resonates with the cult.

  • Gen X is in charge now, and boomers are being shown the door
  • Yup. This is a wise time in your life to start your estate planning, medical directives, etc. Find yourself a good lawyer for this. I'm sure the cost varies by location and practice, but mine was only about $1,500 US.

  • Lemmings of Lemmy who came over from Reddit what do you miss about Reddit and what do you not miss?
  • Have you ever watched the channel "Let's Ask Shogo" on YouTube? It's informative, and he has several videos on life in Japan. I have no interest in moving there myself, but I still enjoyed watching him for a while.

  • Gen X is in charge now, and boomers are being shown the door
  • Glad the boomers are on the way out. As a Gen X'er, not sure we care enough to take charge.

  • Lemmings of Lemmy who came over from Reddit what do you miss about Reddit and what do you not miss?
  • Miss: Niche subs with active users.

    Don't miss: Spez. power mods, endless pun threads, mean-spirited circlejerk subs.

  • I don't like sleeping in dark rooms
  • I wish I had your superpower. I need the room pretty dark to sleep well.

    Doesn't have to be total darkness. I like there to be a small amount of light. My bed has underlighting, so you can see the floor. But it's not blasting you in the eyes. Works pretty well.

    I really dislike sunlight creeping in through the windows in the morning. My shades block 98% of it. But the windows face south, so sunlight leaks in around the edges. They make edge seals for this, but I haven't tried them.

    Once I'm awake, I do like to throw the shades up. Sunlight is better than artificial light when I'm up and about.

  • Elon Musk Reportedly Offered SpaceX Employees Sperm to Seed Mars Colony
  • He has a dozen kids already. This dude needs to get his fetish under control.

  • US public rapidly sours on Project 2025 as awareness grows
  • If you have conservative "old fashioned" friends and family members who are OK with the toxic sludge of regressive cultural stuff in Project 2025: scare them with the truth that they want to also cut social security and medicare. Two very popular programs with old people. Old people vote in large numbers. Old people remember paying into the social security and medicare systems for their entire career. They won't like it when the leopards eat their faces.

  • US public rapidly sours on Project 2025 as awareness grows
  • He's trying to distance himself from it but yeah, almost everything he says is a lie.

  • humble, introverted self asks for your advice about human behavior at the workplace. Please read below:
  • You did a good thing and got out of your comfort zone and engaged in a friendly manner. However, it takes practice, and you may have given off a "used car salesman" vibe or some other vibe without meaning to. Also, some of your new coworkers could be very introverted or even snobs. You can't control other people, only yourself. Give it some more practice, but maybe dial it down a few notches. Trust has to be earned in both directions and this can take a long time in some work environments.

  • JD Vance is the least liked VP nominee in decades, according to polls
  • OMG, you're probably right. Too fuckin' funny.

  • JD Vance is the least liked VP nominee in decades, according to polls
  • I know it's mostly about his toxic ideas, but it probably doesn't help that he looks like a dude that Canteen Boy wouldn't want to be left alone with on a scouting trip.

  • How did gravity worked on the Death Star?
  • Just like earth! With magnets! GOSH.

  • Republican leaders urge colleagues to steer clear of racist and sexist attacks on Harris
  • "Guys, guys, guys, everybody be cool man, people are paying attention right now."

  • How to have fun when old
  • Some rando eating by himself

    Denis Nedry: See, nobody cares.

  • Google Is the Only Search Engine That Works on Reddit Now Thanks to AI Deal
  • I am hoping (probably naively so) that lemmy's stock of technical answers will continue to grow and eventually become a half decent archive for people to search for potential solutions.
