A friend of mine who was not politically engaged in the 2016 cycle told me recently "I finally see what you were getting so worked up about then. I didn't realize how bad it would be" and that he's going to pay attention and do more this time. I hope there are a lot like him.

The Fourth Reich 

Because white people get upset when I say white people want a fascist state, here's a white guy laying it out for you as well...

I'm going to keep saying it. If you ever wonder how something as horrible as the Nazis happened, look at what is happening in the US right now.

I've been helping run a club on my campus, but there's something that struck me today: we have had zero - yes, ZERO - PoC come in and give talks in the year I've been on. We have also had zero women speakers, zero LGBT+ speakers. Just the regular cis white dude, and I'm tired of that atm. I want some color, some perspective. So, this is a call for communication.

If you identify as a PoC, woman, LGBT+ individual or as a part of another marginalized group and are interested in giving talks on tech please contact me, because I would be interested in getting someone in for a talk.

birds hitting windows 

I’m too high up to see the ground through the tops of trees, but that bird might be one of the snacks for the scavenger birds that like to perch on the window sills. 😵

birds hitting windows 

I work on the top floor of a medium sized suburban office building with mirror windows. So of course we get fairly frequent bird strikes as the poor things just see open sky. Most of the time they get stunned and are generally okay.

I just had one happen right behind me. Light thud and I turn around in time to see a puff of feathers floating down. Looks like dude was going a little too fast. 💨

Happy Wednesday beautiful people.

Have you eaten yet? Did you get some water? Have you taken your dailies?

Before you do anything, make sure you’ve taken care of yourself. Yes, what you’re doing needs to get done, but you’re important too. Make sure you get what you need.

techbro-adjacent sexism 

"Wikipedia rejected an entry on today’s Nobel Prize winner in May because she wasn’t famous enough"

Digging into it, I think the rejection was actually against Wikipedia's own policies. Specifically, as an elected fellow and then president of the Optical Society, she passes the criteria here:

Fresh magma take, Just unfollow me 

The virulent insecurity of white men globally is the origin of the rotting of civilized society.

There is nothing more dangerous to logic, reason and sanity than a white man that FEELS like he's not getting what he deserves, regardless of whether they actually earned it.

They would rather jump off of a cliff to their brutal death than admit they are just wrong.

Maniac not really spoiling 

Just finished the episode of Maniac with the ferret and this is finally getting interesting. Okay, the Justin Theroux VR sex thing was hilarious too.
