Cut?

Err, unless they've also managed to advance our mastery of physics to Star Trek levels, that's *Copy* and Paste.

Cool project.

Trello starts waving AI around as collab outfit hits 50 million registrations

Quite a lot of cynicism here...

Personally I love Trello, have umpteen boards and use it every day; it's my main workflow management tool.

Simple, and excellent UI. And the free tier seems quite good value for money.

UK tech freelancer numbers down for first time in 5 years since IR35 tax reforms hit public sector

The initial misunderstanding of the user doesn't sound that unreasonable tbh. A magic cure-all is sold to them probably using marketing guff and techno babble; users are not always going to understand all constraints and limitations.

The long journey through support is not a ringing endorsement of it.

This sounds more like a failure of tech and trainers, and not a moronic user.

Expecting the cloud to be fixed is more of a stretch.

Re: "This measure is expected to impact 170,000 individuals" . . .

Whatever the rights and wrongs of the government's actions, contractors (and the organisations using them) will need to adapt their practice or employment choice - or, yes, if they feel that strongly - move abroad. But that is hardly an existential crisis for IT.

No gaping hole tbh; people who don't want to be taxed like everybody else and don't want to make the effort to adapt don't have the monopoly on talent and intelligence, and won't be missed much if they bugger off elsewhere.
