You've been training for this. This is your moment. The amendment isn't going to pump itself. Time to make some calls. I just did and was able to speak to a human within 2 minutes for both of my US Senators. Took < 5 min. We clearly aren't hitting them hard enough. Get er done.
🚨 #Cryptocurency Red Alert 🚨 There is a #Crypto provision hidden in a must-pass bill that will allow mass-surveillance of the crypto-economy. Luckily, an amendment has been introduced that addresses these issues. Tell your Senator to support it ASAP at fftf.link/savecrypto2

The infrastructure bill passed by the Senate and now pending in the House contains an overlooked “digital assets” provision that would be a disaster if it becomes law.

Amazing. Huge thanks to everyone who participated. Wish I’d known sooner. Hope to see more collections as badges for supporting the public good and our common objectives. This is the future of philanthropy.

As someone who has led remote-first companies for 20 years, I can say that it works and 2020 was different. I’m sure it was hard for unprepared companies and people to abruptly make the switch to remote, especially with kids stuck at home. Ignore noob data, study the veterans.
Study of 61,000 Microsoft employees in 2020 finds remote work caused “collaboration to be more static and siloed…a decrease in synchronous communication … and [made it harder for] employees to acquire and share new information across the network.” nature.com/articles/s41562-0…

Oftentimes, we are left to wonder how our policymakers amass fortunes whilst "serving in the interest of the American people". Occasionally, a bit of light is shed unto how these so-called "technocrats" become rich while "ordinary" people suffer. This requires a thread. 🧵

The final act of the U.S. war in Afghanistan was a drone strike in Kabul that killed 10 people. Our latest investigation shows how a man the military saw as an "imminent threat" and "ISIS facilitator" was actually an aid worker returning to his family: nytimes.com/video/world/asia…

You listen to this and if she hadn’t mentioned Texas, that would be the obvious conclusion. Where is the disconnect here?
