Am happily employed etc. Few corps build better teams than that.
[12 October 2021 – Congratulations! Godspeed we all really love Bill lots]
Are these corps too big and require regulation.
During 2020 $2.7trillion increase in market caps for a few corps : alphabet, amazon, apple, gates-funded-facebook, microsoft (other sectors decimated) [April 2021 apple/alphabet recently reduced app store commissions to 15% for the first million in each app sales revenue, then back up to 30% for everything more than a million. The more money others make the higher the commission – quashing much – most (online) stores/banks reduce commissions for high transaction clients. There is no valid creepy corp reason – purchase a Mac people write programs without apple receiving a commission. App owners do not host or manage the software for their online store/CRM at apple, that cost is on top of the commissions paid to apple to simply install/update the app on a device. 30% commission on essentially a credit card transaction is a lot, perhaps reasonable for initial app purchase to cover cost of the app store etc but in our opinion subsequent in-app purchases really should be closer to other online payment transaction processing fees – as an example stores/restaurants attempting to operate via an app, huge dent in revenue, adding thirty percent to every good purchased via an app is a stunningly high credit card commission for consumers]
Not a lot of good for humans during the creepy corps (year) – am not loving creepy corps being that cheerful during lockdowns – maps/tech are useful during infectious disease outbreaks.
Nothing difficult about sitting at a computer creepy corps.
Am more concerned about the 90% of people on the planet that don’t use computers all day for income.
We have no respect for anything connected to creepy corps, especially their surveillance, lack of integrity, bad censorship, privacy invading, sell people’s data, fudged and rigged everything, take all the income from others work and predatory/bullying conduct towards many. Instead of using maps/tech to assist with outbreaks many creepy corps including “at cost” Gates, evil gates-funded-facebook have been doing this all (year)
Cryptocurrency is seriously not a great idea.
Back to happy thoughts.
[7 May 2021 – The People’s Bank of China (the nation’s central bank) plans to block access to all domestic and foreign cryptocurrency exchanges and (Initial Coin Offerings). Mongolia produced 8% of global cryptocurrency and has recently banned cryptocurrency mining due to the amounts of pollution being produced. Huge amounts of respect.
We are very surprised German govt has recently approved use, many other countries are banning due to technical reasons, criminal conduct and truly exorbitant electricity usage]

(7 June 2021 – Happily bitcoin is now banned in China and in a lovely twist that would mean the accounts of twitter-likes-trolls founder (and some other ist tech posts) would be banned from social media – am almost always anti-censorship but must say I find that an example of great censorship)
(1 July 2021 – USA, UK, China, Germany, AU (African nations), France, India, Italy, Switzerland, Canada – over 130 governments so far – have agreed to jointly implement a global tax on corporations, with tax to be paid in the country revenue is earnt – great news. The current squelchy freemason bureaucrats in Ireland (buddies with whom) are a notable exemption to agree to tax creepy corps. Oh dear. Roads, health care, infrastructure, free child care (decades overdue to improve gender equality), public arts funding (community spaces enlivened with art is a happy place – every Friday evening during summer we used to stroll from the office to an open air govt funded jazz concert with organic food stalls. A buddy created stunningly beautiful mosaic benches scattered everywhere filled with non-freemason symbols. Lots of freeways in oz have artwork included in the walls beside that go for miles (amazing), a tunnel has been painted black and filled with twinkling led lights to resemble the night sky making being stuck in traffic magical), plant a garden and a fountain for birds, sculpture or wind turbine on every roundabout, all very handy and paid for by tax)
