I found reference to my hometown in the history of Standard Oil I'm reading and, well, lol bookwyrm.social/user/christa/q

It’s pretty wild how a main part of Standard Oil’s business strategy and success is going “Okay, person who transfers my oil (railroad, pipeline). What if you gave me a steep discount and then also paid me a cut of whatever other people pay you to transfer oil with you. Yeah I know it’s illegal but just be cool.” ... and the railroads and pipelines being like “ok sounds good.”

I'm starting a series of interviews with co-op folks, to learn about their stories and the stories of their cooperatives.

My first convo is with @zspencer@twitter.com, talking about his experiences with @WeCohere@twitter.com and @ZincCooperative@twitter.com.

jorbs - product manager for tech non-profit, working on criminal record clearance 

my team just opened up a role for product manager! do you know anyone who might be a good fit? job requirements, values, and salary in the post.

day-to-day you'd be working in a small team focused on expanding clearance eligibility, implementing clearance automation with gov, building tools for legal aid, centering impacted folks.

happy to chat/answer any questions!

css question 

what do you recommend to learn about writing good (by 'good' here I mean accessible, maintainable, reusable) CSS in real applications? classes, articles, whatever.

well crafted CSS has always been so hard for me to figure out! I've been working on our fledgeling design system at work and feeling a lot of feels lately.

I asked twitter, too, but I bet camp/fedi has better answers
