I was introduced to an interesting web site today https://ballot.votesaveamerica.com. It is *FAR* from perfect but it has a lot of good information and helped me figure out my ballot measures and candidates. By far from perfect I mean I found some opinions in ballot measures though all the candidates in my area were presented mostly neurally. The one major issue is that sometimes it will _not_ have information on a certain candidate but will on their opponent. I noticed missing information on Ds and Rs so I guess it's balanced in its lack of thoroughness.

@agrberg for me it looks like it has a bit too much automation on the backend. e.g. under Civil Rights it has a quote about respecting people "in the last years of their lives" which is clearly healthcare, and actually links to healthcare. But overall very helpful

It totally should be used as a supplement for your own research but it's a good starting point if you want to be an informed voter. I think those are 1% of the already only 15% of the country that votes though :stuck_out_tongue:

It's a sad state of the nation. I'd say we'll get what we deserve but some of us don't deserve it :cry:

Beautiful location but it\'s just way too expensive. You need to work full time at a tech company here to really afford it. It\'s also quite small. The divide between rich and poor is obscene, including a lot of homeless and many people asking for money all over. The tech workers who dominate the transplant crowd that you\'ll be around are mostly workaholic spoiled privileged people full of themselves, not the type I enjoy hanging out with. All the artsy, alternative, and activist types the city used to be known for either live in Oakland or left. The gender ratio is way too heavy on single males, so good luck getting a date, let alone a long term relationship, if you\'re a straight guy. Obviously, Internet speeds are great, plenty of spots to work from. Nightlife is pretty lackluster as you can imagine.

One of the most well known cities, few will be surprised by what they see and experience. Very high cost of living can make it tough for many nomads. A lot of things to see and do but most of that costs money. Can feel overwhelming and oppressively business oriented (ie, full of very serious yuppies and places catering to them), especially in Manhattan south of Harlem. Ton of single people, which is good on paper but means everyone you date will get distracted by another person, or multiple, unless you are extremely exceptional, before you have a chance to meet again, never ends. Weather sucks hard from July to August and January to March/April. It\'s an okay city if you\'re a biker and varies a lot. Some areas are quite protected, others have no bike lanes. In general, it can be dangerous if you want to commute by bike, it\'s not Amsterdam. Friendliness of the people varies a lot. I think income/wealth, where they grew up, where they live within NYC, their job, etc. can often give you an idea of what to expect. Service at stores is usually pretty unhelpful and unfriendly but, again, it varies, even within the same store. Internet is fast for the most part. Great selection of food, just a bit pricey besides some of the cheaper pizza slices. Transportation system is good, no need for a car. However, the subway lines are notorious for having issues during rush hour and are usually jam packed. Also, the stations look decrepit and are way out of date. It\'s pretty safe. Street scams are more prevalent in tourist areas, pick-pocketing and random phone snatching isn\'t really anything most people worry about. Can be very noisy depending on where you live. You may wake up to extremely loud construction every morning.

London is a pretty bad place for nomads. It\'s very hard to find places to work in London. Cafes don\'t like people with laptops, there won\'t be any power outlets and you\'ll get funny stares from staff. That\'s because London is expensive, and it\'s a loss for cafes to have you. Flexible coworking is hard to come by and day passes are very expensive. That makes it practically impossible to work properly in London as a nomad. It\'s a city where lots of people are scraping by cooped up into tiny shared housing with skyhigh rents, lots of superficial tourists and a few rich people.
