Platform cooperativism (or, how to turn gig-economy jobs into $22.25/hour jobs)

Frequent Boing Boing contributor Clive Thompson (previously) has a great short piece in this month's Wired about platform cooperativism: replacing parasitical Silicon Valley companies that sit between workers and their customers with worker-owned co-ops that take the smallest commission possible in order to maintain the apps that customers and workers use to find each other. Thompson tells the story of Up & Go, a worker-owned co-op for house cleaners where the average worker earns $22.25/ho...

Paris in Beautiful Color Images from 1890: The Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, The Panthéon, and More (1890)

The 17th and 18th centuries in England marked a period of ostentation for a growing, and increasingly wealthy, landowning class. These were also times of internal religious wars between Catholics and Protestants, a period that saw the regicide of Charles I, the restoration of Charles II to the throne, and William and Mary’s “Glorious Revolution,” deposing his successor, James II. All of this over the span of 28 years. Anti-Catholic sentiment ran high among the people, and it made a particularly...

Whicker: Warriors remind Clippers they can beat them with defense too

LOS ANGELES — Mark Jackson was at Staples Center on Sunday. He was Golden State’s coach five years ago, when Donald T. Sterling finally fell like a despot’s statue, and the Clippers fought through a seven-game Western Conference first-round win. There was a lot of talk about that anniversary before this Game 4, with Clippers coach Doc Rivers recalling a shouting match with a Sterling associate that kept him from reaching the floor until the minute before tipoff. Both Rivers and Warriors coach St...

UCLA defense steals the show in spring football game

LOS ANGELES — Toward the end of Saturday morning’s spring football game, UCLA’s alumni band leader yelled to his group: “OK, when they score we’re going to play ‘Sons of Westwood’!” Unfortunately for the band, the UCLA football team never got into the end zone on that particular drive, or the entire day for that matter. The Bruins’ spring practice season came to a close with just three points to show for it. A short J.J. Molson field goal from UCLA’s first-team offense on its third drive were th...

Danilo Gallinari expects better of himself, Clippers in Game 4 vs. Warriors

PLAYA VISTA — Doc Rivers isn’t worried about Danilo Gallinari. Neither is Danilo Gallinari. The only hint of concern came from the Golden State camp, where Warriors guard Klay Thompson told reporters at Staples Center that Gallinari is “capable of getting hot.” “You’ve just got to take away his space,” Thompson said. “He’s a great shooter and a great shooter wants to have some space, so we try to close that gap between him.” Gallinari went 2 for 13 from the field, 0 for 8 from 3-point range, and...

‘Thor 4’ May Have Already Been Pitched, According to ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Star Tessa Thompson

Did you hear there’s a new Avengers movie coming this month? No? It’s not like they’ve been advertising it or anything. Just around the corner, we’ve got Avengers: Endgame bringing an end to The Infinity Saga. But after that, we don’t have an official slate of movies that has been announced by Marvel Studios. Of course, that doesn’t mean Marvel isn’t hard at work getting their slate together. Not only do we have a good idea of the movies that will be shooting in the next couple years, but Kevin...

The ‘incredibly rare’ way these adoptive parents in Pasadena found their daughter’s bio-sister

By Joshua Rosen Contributor Five years ago, a Pasadena family adopted their daughter from China. Last year they discovered she has a sister. Now they’re desperately trying to bring her home too. When Sidney Pogatchnik and her husband adopted Ellie, now 7, from Lanzhou, China in 2014, nobody knew that she had a biological sister — not even the orphanage. “I think it’s crazy, I still do! I’m kind of getting used to it now, but even when I just stop for a minute and think about it …,” Pogatchnik tr...
