Today some co-authors and I published a "correction" removing our names as authors on a paper… This unusual move deserves explanation despite continuing moves by a coauthor's lawyers that have had a chilling effect my expression of my scientific views

^ very interesting given that only thing I heard before about platform commission was that Uber/Lyft keeping ~30% is evil..never thought about how much drivers used to take home before. Also very interesting how in employment you likely get much smaller % of the value you produce but because value produced and costs to employer are largely illegible, you do not instinctively feel unfairness.
