Lanetix Inc Fires Workers for Attempt to Unionize

You can add Lanetix Inc, the developer of a subpar CRM, to the list of wannabe union-busters. They’re also now on the shitlist of every decent engineer in the world. We don’t forget this shit.

The union alleged in the complaint, which was filed with the NLRB Jan. 29, that the company threatened the software engineers after they began discussing unionizing in an internal instant messaging group. Lanetix later terminated “all engineers and senior engineers in retaliation for demanding recognition,” CWA said.

Conservatory Of Flowers Live Stream of Amorphophallus Titanum Bloom

The Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park is doing a live stream of their Amorphophallus titanum, aka Corpse Flower, blooming. This plant blooms once every 10 years, and during the bloom grows almost two times its normal size and emits a foul stench for two days before shriveling up and starting over. It’s pretty cool. Corpse Flower!

If you’re in the bay area you should go visit.
