Reminder that taking that cushy looking job at Google or Facebook makes you complicit in world's greatest mass erosion of privacy at scale. You can say goodbye to any of your side projects, too.

@sir not true about side projects, at least for Google. You do have to declare them.

@skybrian that doesn't fit what I've heard from other googlers, former and current

@sir maybe we mean different things by side project? I joined in 2006, declared my Firefox plugin in exhibit A (intellectual property), and they never bothered me about it. It was free, open source though.

@sir another example would be Bob Nystrom who maintains the Wren language interpreter, has a roguelike, and is writing a book.

@sir or Amazon. I know some amazonians who would echo the sentiment
