@lemmy_for_mastodon I wish I could but I'm logged into a different instance (kbin.social) and when I try to subscribe I get a "Not Logged In" message.

There are more than cultural differences. WeChat is a surveillance app for the masses by the State. This is not an exaggeration.

Top AI companies including OpenAI, Alphabet and Meta Platforms have made voluntary commitments to the White House to implement measures such as watermarking AI-generated content to help make the technology safer, the Biden administration said on Friday.

I don't think he called bullshit as much as he thought it has potential but not ready yet. Lol! I love the fediverse. Let everyone else find the next best thing that will, once again, get ruined.

I'm on discord but not for the sociability so much. However, there are some hyper specific subjects that get served up there. Personally, I find it very chaotic.

iLikeGoats OP ,
@iLikeGoats@kbin.social avatar

Now I'm laughing.

How many of you are still working full-time remote and how is it going? If not, why not? Was the decision made by you to go back to the office or did your employer decide for you? (kbin.social)

I am still working full-time remote. There are definitely some social aspects of going to the office I miss, but I really don't miss the commute or the shitty office politics. Overall I feel I am still more productive from home and happier overall.

iLikeGoats OP ,
@iLikeGoats@kbin.social avatar

I'm in a very similar situation. My partner and I are very lucky to have a nice house and office space for each of us. I understand not everyone has that. :(

@iLikeGoats@kbin.social avatar

My thoughts exactly!

@iLikeGoats@kbin.social avatar

Sounds like all the old dudes were feeling lonely and just wanted some company. I will say that you are lucky to have a 20 min commute. When I was going in daily I, had a 90 min commute on public transportation. Yuck.

What?!?! 8 years and NOW they call you back. I'm sorry!

I like to write between tasks. Both fiction and little programs that continue to make my work easier via "automation."

iLikeGoats OP ,
@iLikeGoats@kbin.social avatar

Totally agree. And actually, if I were in my early career, I would probably like to go in for face-to-face time too.

iLikeGoats OP ,
@iLikeGoats@kbin.social avatar

Would you mind sharing what type of work you do?

iLikeGoats OP ,
@iLikeGoats@kbin.social avatar

I'm in a similar situation. Sort of "soft" shopping for a new job but nothing has really fired me up enough to make the change. And if I do, I am fully committed to being remote as well.

iLikeGoats OP ,
@iLikeGoats@kbin.social avatar

I get easily distracted as well. I battle this by using the Pomodoro productivity method. This fits my short attention span AND allows me distraction time.

I feel you about traffic. If I had to drive into work I don't think I would ever make it to the office before closing time.

This resonates with me for the times I have gone in the office.

iLikeGoats OP ,
@iLikeGoats@kbin.social avatar

Personally, I love it. No one is watching over my shoulder planning my day but me. My office only cares that I complete my work on time. I get to figure out how best to do that.

iLikeGoats OP ,
@iLikeGoats@kbin.social avatar

LOL! My org is doing this as well. The couple of times I've been in I just plopped myself down in a conference room without booking it. No one was around to complain.

That's cool. If I tried to ride my bike to work I would probably get run over in the first couple of miles. I'm jealous of cities that have nice bike paths.

Nice! One of my first jobs in HS was working for a small, family-run machine shop. I got all the messy clean up jobs but liked the work overall.

I'm with @kestel7, that sounds really shitty. I hope things get better for you. Even if you get another remote job maybe you can make enough to go to a shared workspace.
