This is a must-read thread.

Bottom line: @AOC@twitter.com is right. Voters strongly support the Green New Deal in almost every district in America. We must reshape society for the 21st century, built on justice and climate resilience—but corporations want the status quo. This is our fight. twitter.com/leahstokes/status/

If payment had been integrated into the web from the beginning - as some argued for - the last couple decades might have unfolded very differently for the whole world.

Whatever your thoughts on Green New Deal, the interconnection it presumes - between justice, the economy, the environment, tech innovation, education - represents systems thinking on the grandest scale.

And isn't it asystematic approaches that are unrealistic - and unserious?

Lyft employees could buy every for-sale home in SF w/their IPO cash.

It's just the first to IPO this year, at $24 billion.

Still likely up:
—Uber, $120B
—WeWork, $47B
—Palantir, $41B
—Airbnb, $35B
—Pinterest, $12B
—Slack, $7.1B
—Postmates, $1.9B

Popularizing remote work would be the solution to a huge number of problems:

Lower housing costs
Decrease emissions
Increase economic mobility

It’s still not quite there yet unless you put extreme effort into making it work. Making remote work easy is an enormous problem.

I'm working on a project to crowdcollect the whole dang distribution grid - every pole, transformer, and line.

I have an app that's ready to test this weekend.
No leaderboard yet, but it will track your contributions for future glory.

Ping me if you're this kind of nerd.

We need a Manhattan-Project-scale effort to fund foresight, develop disruptive strategies, transform media and cultural approaches to climate questions, create emergency planning and policy toolkits, mobilize finance and business, educate elites etc etc

We need it yesterday.

Sometimes being a climate optimist is lonely. And by optimist I don’t mean that I don’t think it’s a problem. I mean that I really do believe we’ll come together and fix this. Maybe I’m stubborn. Maybe it’s because I’m naive. Or maybe it’s because that optimism feels necessary.

I have had many conversations in which the *dominant factor* in a job-change decision is health coverage - getting it (back), losing it. Why isn't this a bigger part of the discussion? Huge economic loss.

RT @wesmckinn@twitter.com

If all Americans had guaranteed healthcare I think we would see a lot more open source development and entrepreneurship. Many people can't risk losing continuity of coverage they get via employment. Our system is very short-sighted
