isn’t a huge part of the appeal of a “tiny house” its extremely customizable nature?

tiny houses are just trailers for millennials
de-stigmatizing the trailer park is good, churching it up with knock off starbucks aesthetics is bad

https://newrepublic.com/article/161488/fintech-industry-wants-give-desperate-workers-advance-next-paycheck-its-trap

The specter of future litigation hasn’t stopped investors in what has become known as FinTech from doubling down on apps that allow employees to collect money they have already earned and are scheduled to receive in their next paycheck. In addition to services such as Earnin, a number of competitors have begun offering an employer-based model, in which corporations allow earned-wage access companies to have first dibs on employee paychecks.


Earnin, PayActiv, and their swarm of competitors—most of them with names that could have only been brainstormed by the cultic ministers of Silicon Valley, like Brigit, Even, and Rain—are all marketed as products that help the consumer get their finances in order. “We’re committed to the cause of the lower-income worker,” says Safwan Shah, the CEO of PayActiv. “People need some kind of financial security. They need dignity, they need savings to be ready for tomorrow.”


Rather than channel consumers to a charge card or assess a fee, Earnin solicits “tips.” Each time someone accesses money, they receive a message informing them that another Earnin user “covered” their transaction and prompting them to “pay it forward for someone else.” After they tip, another message pops up telling them how many other users they helped and, “Kindness is contagious!” The not-so-subtle hints are remarkably effective, with some 40 percent of users tipping regularly.

One woman who has used the service since 2015 told me she usually tips $6 or $7 per transaction to ensure users in dire straits don’t lose access. Such altruism is certainly commendable, even if it’s perplexing that voluntary user donations are necessary to support a company that has raised $190 million in venture funding.

i don't really see what the big deal is about the repurposed macy's high school

the university i went to had repurposed a downtown department store into classrooms and it didn't feel that much different than any of the other bland institutional buildings

the (deservedly) much-heralded elementary school that Lebron James opened is in an abandoned office building. That's why there's no gym (yet) or theatre or really any large gathering room and all the photos are staged in the entrance way. it works
