Written so many years ago, still so insightful.

I strongly believe that it’s not our job to fix men. Men can fix themselves. They’re not *actually* helpless they’re just used to ridiculous levels of support from every side. And that is part of what’s toxic about masculinity: unacknowledged feelings of entitlement to constant and unacknowledged support.
It’s not really that hard to be a considerate and good person first.

Fight post depression, by watching "All Creatures Welcome".

Even better, organize a screening at your local hackerspace.

Great to see many sessions/discussions at . Happy to see a lot of hackers participating, trying to figure out ways to contribute and use technology for environmental activism.

Look if you want to write proprietary software just write proprietary software, don't pretend you're doing a social good by doing so

In light of Australia's anti-encryption, this is an important message from @signalapp@twitter.com

It's not enough for services to state they decline to add a backdoor. It should be practically impossible to do so. Based on their architecture and verifiable by public source code.

I’m sorry to post a link to surveillance capitalist YouTube but you need to watch this speech by Hannah Gadsby in full. In under eight minutes, not only does she give a masterclass in intersectional feminism but also a biting critique of the hypocrisy at the heart of neoliberalism.

(Please visit the link below in a separate browser in incognito mode if possible, it leads to YouTube, an unsafe site.)
