Good god.
I feel it necessary to break automation for a moment to restate:
This is The Most Boring Tumblr In Known Space.  Deliberately.  I run it as a sort of automated half-power Chronofile for my own use and amusement.  I get that it must be quite horrible for someone who isn’t me to scan through.  I will not be sad if you don’t read it.
I can otherwise be found, hopefully slightly more interestingly:
On Twitter as @warrenellis
On Instagram as warrenellis.  I usually have Instagram DMs switched on.
At my weeklyish newsletter, orbitaloperations.com - subscribe at that link, and once a week or more or less I will ramble and rant at you about things.  This is possibly the best way to keep up with me, if you’re interested in my work or whatever else leaks out of my skull.
I have a small personal presence on Facebook under my name.
I also have a Snapchat account, as warrenellis, which sometimes brings me nice surprises.
I write, most mornings, at http://morning.computer .
And I podcast ambient music at spkmdl.libsyn.com .
If you wanted to be nice, you could buy copies of my two current comics series, TREES and SUPREME BLUE ROSE, or my last novella, DEAD PIG COLLECTOR, but I won’t force you.
Seriously.  How does that reader count keep going up?

Oh,…I don’t know…perhaps because your a famous and prolific science fiction writer?

But flexibility — an alluring word for white-collar workers, who may desire, say, working from home one day a week — can have a darker meaning for many low-income workers as a euphemism for unstable hours or paychecks. Legislators and activists are now promoting proposals and laws to mitigate the scheduling problems. But those who manufacture and study scheduling software, including Mr. DeWitt of Kronos, advocate a more direct solution: for employers and managers to use the software to build in schedules with more accommodating core hours. “The same technology could be used to create more stability and predictability,” said Zeynep Ton, a professor at M.I.T. who studies retail operations.

just a thought

I have been blogging information about a shift in the power/equality civil freedom erosion in the US for the last couple of years. Suddenly because of Ferguson it is on everyone’s radar (rightly so). My thought has been that at sometime the “mask will come off” but then it will be too late.

Is it too late? Was this an unveiling? How will it be spun?
