There's going to be a public hearing tomorrow, December 10 at 12pm about facial recognition cameras at #SeaTac airport. https://actionnetwork.org/events/seattle-port-meeting-on-facial-recognition-at-sea-tac/
Only learned about it today.
A header in, you won't believe it, Seattle Times: "First of six weather systems rolls into Seattle area; at least a week of rain ahead."
"at least a week of rain ahead"…
Of all publications in the country Seattle Times should know better: it's going to be months! Plural. Probably with snow in between, if last year is any indication.
Turns out, I live in *the richest* city in U.S., Sammamish, WA https://www.kuow.org/stories/in-richest-u-s-city-life-isn-t-perfect
(Not a judgmental comment, just an interesting factoid.)
Compared to four years ago, there's a real explosion of Middle Asian cuisine in #Moscow. From small joints to posh restaurants, you can get your pilaf and shawarma any way you like.
This is probably the first huge migration based cultural shift I witnessed with my own eyes.
@finn hey, do you plan on providing a ways to chip in for supporting this instance financially? If it takes off, it's gonna need some insurance of long-term maintainability, so to speak :-)
#Seattle May Have Figured Out How to End the War on #Drugs: Nick Kristof writes that while other cities are jailing drug users, Seattle has found another way. A long read, but worth your while. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/23/opinion/sunday/opioid-crisis-drug-seattle.html
If you're into tangy #cheese, I can recommend aged queso fresco. I'm buying mine from the Samish Bay stall at Redmond Saturday market, but I'm pretty sure they sell at other farmer's markets through the week as well.
Hi everyone! I'm Ivan. Setting up a local sub-account of my main one @isagalaev. I've been missing a local social network since I don't use Facebook or Twitter. Been even thinking of running an instance myself, but luckily someone had the same idea and went with it, so I don't have to :-)

An instance for people who live in or around Seattle. Also for people who don't live in or around Seattle, but want to talk about Seattle-related things. Almost all applications are accepted. We aim to review all applications within a few hours of submission, but give us 24 hours before getting in touch other ways.
