30June24 Brief

These aren't small groups of fans trading fanfiction and fanart about their favorite ships and characters – these are endlessly ravenous robots whose appetites for intellectual property have the potential to destroy the livelihoods of artists from across the spectrum of creative life.

In today's Brief:
News from the Roundup
And Now for Some Good News
Get Hired

Hey, apologies y'all – this was supposed to go out last night but a glitch with the job board prevented it. I hope you'll forgive the incorrect date; updating the newsletter links in all the jobs is tedious work.

A light issue this week, and probably the next few weeks! We're traveling back to home base, and I'm trying to be somewhat more present for the fam even if I'm not really taking any time off.

News from the Roundup

Get Hired

I play Bad Job Bingo with every job listing that appears in the Roundup and categorize them according to how well (or poorly, if I hit Bingo) they do in the game. These and past contestants can be found at Support Human Jobs.

It's been a while since I've done one, so have a Bad Job Bingo: Trust & Safety Edition.

Green Means Go

No flags, or green flags only! A true unicorn.

Eh, It’s Probably Fine

A few flags popped up, but no serious ones.

Tread Carefully

Didn’t quite hit bingo, but there were several yellow flags or more than one red flag.

BINGO

Welp.

Seriously, Maybe Don’t

Don't say I didn't warn you.


That's it for this week! If you have items for the Roundup or the Brief you'd like to submit, you can do so at roundup@supporthuman.cx, but be sure to check out the Roundup FAQs first.

23Jun24 Brief

Am I surprised that, as far as I can tell, there have been absolutely no public consequences for Matt Mullenweg's public misbehavior? No, not really. And I’m not mad. I’m just disappointed.

We're all going to pretend I sent this out at one minute to midnight on Tuesday, okay? Please. I can't update all those job links again.
