In the 1960s it was @IBM and the BUNCH (Burroughs, UNIVAC, NCR, Control Data Corporation and Honeywell); adding RCA and GE made it IBM and the Seven Dwarves. FAAAM is dominant now, but they too are a transient collection. https://twitter.com/christse/status/1264606103964393474

Bankruptcy triggers a series of cascading events. Hertz’s court petition listed about US$25.8 billion in assets and US$24.4 billion of debts; its biggest creditors include IBM and Lyft.
“Being the church” is far more than simply “going to church”. It seems to me that many find it far easier to be outraged at being temporarily denied the latter than they are actively living out the former.

It was getting hard to find existing things to make worse.
We have ~360k households in the city, so if the 110k number is correct (& are people who live in the city) that means 1 in 3 households filed an unemployment claim (!!!) ON TOP OF THIS, Twitter, Square, Facebook & countless others are now WFH forever * BRACE FOR IMPACT *
BRUTAL STATS: SF has 110k+ unemployment claims since the start of the year (entire bay area 825k) SF population: ~900,000 On a % basis I'm not sure where this puts us, but we were at 2.7% unemployment in Feb---so it's got to be around 10-15%? [ via: @SocketSite ]
 
Unemployment on Maui is about 40%
