Current mood: feelin like a robot full of parasitic squid-snails

One of my of my dearest childhood memories is finding 'secret areas' in video games that weren't really that, just empty parts the designers hadn't filled because they didn't realize players would be able to get there.

"WeWork is promoting a mythology for those in the brave new gig economy: You, precarious worker who will never have a pension, are not a simple cog in a machine. Your work is not merely labour, for which you deserve decent pay and security, but an extension of your personality.
