I just saw this article in The Guardian on Emotional Labor and it contains a link to the epic metafilter discussion!
To people who have done this; why did you create Front Page Post(s) on MetaFilter? The motivations are interesting in themselves, and may also provide positive reasons for people to cross the rubicon from lurker to poster. [more inside]
"Wal-mart is software" - MeFi post or comment? [more inside]
I'm trying to find a specific post from who knows when where we talked about the labor practices described in this Palm Beach Post series. Specifically, I remember someone talking about the orange juice companies, and how they either called or emailed them to find out if they did not support/use these practices from those they bought from. Did I imagine this? I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone recall this, or find it?
