This week’s column…results from BECOME Education survey of 7000 school students shows that young people are prematurely focused on only 10 occupations which differ consistent with gender stereotypes. https://www.smh.com.au/business/workplace/people-must-not-be-married-at-first-sight-to-career-options-20230605-p5ddzz.html #career #education #psychology #oecd #work #gender
It is possible for a #work to have its own will and purpose, perhaps a far more ambitious one than the #author's - and it is good this should be so.

"How about this, set up an #IRC server, give accounts to [the marketing people] and our customers, and tell them it's an instant communication technology, available only to them, and that no one else has it! (Because that's technically true)"
Still waiting for a response.
We had a new coworker join the office today.

#AI #Surveillance #Privacy #DataProtection #Work #WageSlavery: "AI is making its way into workplace tools and apps, and software makers claim technology can help improve skills, well-being and social connections at work. Employers are facing new challenges with more distributed workforces, a growing amount of business data, and a plethora of tools and programs to manage it all.
About 47 percent of workers who use digital technology for their jobs say they often struggle to find the information and data they need, according to a recent survey by market research firm Gartner. But some experts warn there could be backlash from workers who may feel Big Brother is tracking their activities.
Darrell West, a senior fellow at the Center for Technology Innovation at the Brookings Institution, said technology is changing the dynamics of the workplace, and that may create discomfort for some workers."
The Next Crisis Will Start With Empty #Office Buildings
Commercial real estate is losing value fast.
"Post-#pandemic, kids are back in school, retirees are back on cruise ships, and physical stores are doing better than expected. But offices are struggling perhaps more than most casual observers realize, and the consequences for landlords, banks, municipal governments, and even individual portfolios will be far-reaching. In some cases, they will be catastrophic. But this crisis, like all crises, also represents an opportunity to reconsider many of our assumptions about #work and cities."

There has been a very significant increase in the number of people cycling to work in Ireland. In fact, the numbers have recovered to the levels from 1986.

They got onto it very quickly, bless them. And have been working hard.
Aaaaand..... I've just figured I only actually need about a third of what I've asked them for.
I feel so guilty now.

When you contract for work projects it’s usually boom or bust. I’m in a boom phase, which is great. It’s also a treadmill that I’ll run my ass off on until I’m thrown into the wall.
I need a job!
My PhD is drawing to a close.
I'm looking for post-doc research opportunities or web/software development roles, ideally a combination, as in digital humanities research.
My previous research experience is in heritage and higher education for the arts.
My PhD was about knowledge frameworks and the affordances of digital tools and representations in research, in relation to research reuse, transparency and inclusivity.
I would love to be able to contribute more to innovative work on research and knowledge representations.
I am open to new possibilities! In particular I am interested in the possibility of becoming involved in sustainability and biodiversity-related research.
I am a full-stack web developer, and have a good deal of front-end design experience. I am open to all opportunities, particularly remote working!
I am not great at this self-promotion thing...
I will be putting a portfolio site online soon, but am happy to share a CV with anyone who is interested in the meantime.
Thanks for any boosts!

Sleep well fediverse friends! Tomorrow is another chance to give yourself a good today.

I've noticed that individuals who lack intellectual humility tend to be the ones I've had the most conflicts with in a work environment.

A lot of wealthy people have money tied up in office buildings. So don't be surprised when you hear that "covid is over" or "remote work isn't as good". Empty offices are a threat to their future riches.
"In their paper, the authors argue that remote work has led to significant drops in lease revenue, occupancy, lease renewal rates, and market rents in the office sector within commercial real estate."

Scheduling calls with international teams is a challenge. Making the solution unjust only adds to the problem. But how can scheduling be unjust?

We have been told for generations that lowering taxes on the rich helps the economy, and that "increased entitlements" are a burden the taxpayer cannot afford.
These are lies. The truth, borne out by history is this:
Programs that help the poor, the working poor and those unable to work, actually benefit the overall economy and are not a net tax burden on the taxpayers. 1/2
