Hey hey it's Affordable Care Act sign up day.

It could definitely be better and too many people still fall through the gaps but tell your US friends who need insurance to check their options between now and December 15.

i want to define a term called "medical will". for me this means the structural, collective, and individual drive toward developing and providing medical measures. so many things are possible or already extant, but without the medical will they're never dispensed to people who need it. political will external to this isn't sufficient, although it's necessary. i think we should talk about how much medical will is lacking, & it should be a focus of accountability for medical and insurance actors.

From the "I honestly cannot even" and "cry me a fscking river" departments:
apparently #Facebook is banning/blocking #NSOGroup employees on Fb and Instagram.

This is such a perfect storm. On one hand, NSO Group is unequivocally a force for evil in this world, and I do not mind personal cost being put on working for them.

On the other hand, Facebook feels like the exact wrong party to do that.

My take? This gon b gud! 🍿 🍿 🍿

While the backend of Pleroma has a pretty good amount of devs, the frontend is somewhat understaffed. So if you are interested in helping out with the Pleroma frontend, check out the issues at https://git.pleroma.social/pleroma/pleroma-fe/issues and / or come over to #pleroma-dev on freenode irc.

(What staff was left at Deadspin quit en masse yesterday, and one of the Gawker^WG/O Media sponsors, Farmers Insurance, pulled a $1M advertising deal)

I see out-of-touch rich guy Jim Spanfeller finally killed .

Interesting story, if only because it's been so well-reported; out-of-touch rich people ruin things like this every day.

so, the other night i had a pretty bad accident. i'm okay, just in a lot of pain, but my wallet was run over by a car and pretty much everything inside was destroyed. i spent my last $10 ordering a new state ID so i have some way to prove my identity. if anyone feels like throwing me a buck or two to make recovering from this easier, i would appreciate it tremendously. it's scary to be in this vulnerable a position, where the only way i have to access my money is an unreliable google pay app that's barely accepted anywhere, and only cents left to my name anyway.
