This is one of those events that I truly find creepy though I can’t exactly explain why.

I remember this. I didn’t see the WGN one but I did see the WTTW/Ch. 11 on. Weird and a little scary. But another interesting footnote in Chicago history
“The heavily distorted signal, repeated moans, and nauseous swaying of the background give the impression that the character is in pain, agonizingly trapped inside the rogue signal. If the effect was to craft something impenetrable and frightening, they mostly succeeded.”
Doesn’t take much power at all. Apparently, the hacker broke into the stations’s STL (Studio -to- Transmitter) link, which usually was a microwave radio which used 1-10 watts of power. Aim your radios antenna at the stations STL receive antenna (which was at the station’s transmitter site) tune it up to the right…
Hasn’t the statute of limitations on this crime expired?
All that effort wasted... Could have done something worthy, like:
I’m young enough to have spent most of my life with the internet but old enough to remember the days before dial up. I remember having such hope in the internet changing our lives for the better.
A “community” that spends its time in solitary, yelling at each other about their political views or whatever else they can find to bicker about.
It’s not exploitation when people are freely choosing to do these jobs.
They are terrible with apartments buildings, and I didn’t realize until this article that it’s because of Logistics. They’ve claimed not to have the door code to my building a number of times, despite it being a garden apartment with unsecured doors.

In fact I would bet that someone with fewer options and holding a crappy position would be more likely to resort to extreme measures to keep it than someone…
I agree about the incompetence.
First off, this is a fabulous article. So thank you for that.
I think I would attribute that to being a product of the precariousness of the labor force in general.
Get treated like crap, do crap work. Sounds like you don’t really understand this with the way you talk about people
This is perfectly valid advice for an individual, but there are still going to be other people who take those jobs. They’re not going to see much pressure to change from the few with the knowledge and in the position to look for other jobs, the pressure to change needs to come from the outside.
Amazon’s own delivery service, Amazon Logistic, is the worse delivery service among the different services that Amazon uses. USPS is the second worse delivery service. UPS is ok.
The current tech industry is all about breaking the rules/regulations/laws that protect employees and customers and then pretending like they offer a better service since they can do things other companies cannot. If uber/lyft/amazon had to follow the rules that other companies did, they would not be as dominant as…
