To this end, we now make our first clear demand of Google. We demand that Google give three billion dollars to an anarchist organization of our choosing. This money will then be used to create autonomous, anti-capitalist, and anti-racist communities throughout the Bay Area and Northern California. In these communities, whether in San Francisco or in the woods, no one will ever have to pay rent and housing will be free. With this three billion from Google, we will solve the housing crisis in the Bay Area and prove to the world that an anarchist world is not only possible but in fact irrepressible.
A demand by a group called “The Counterforce,” which struck up some weirdly over-the-top anger by protesting at Digg creator and Google Ventures employee Kevin Rose’s house, referencing an (admittedly in poor taste) misogynistic joke Rose made in a podcast six years ago, and calling him a “parasite.” Wow.

San Francisco Bay Area protesters, who have been targeting Google’s shuttle buses in the city over issues of gentrification and criticism of the company’s practices, have apparently resorted to bothering individual Google employees, because there’s nothing about that that doesn’t scream “alienating people who might otherwise be on your side.”

Stuff you may have missed: January 13, 2014

Google just bought a thermostat company. Nest, which is led by the man who essentially invented the iPod, sold to the tech giant for $3.2 billion bucks. Google plans to keep it going as a separate company.

The above deal totally overshadows the day’s other aquisition—Facebook’s buyout of Branch, a company started with the investment of two Twitter co-founders. Awkward.

Colorado’s latest pot-fueled endeavor: The state just received federal funding to create “Don’t Drive Stoned" ads.

Jerry Seinfeld and Jason Alexander went to lunch today at a diner, but not just any diner. THAT diner. You know the one.

Some heartless scammers got caught tricking old people with robocalls.
