Social networks come and go, and I really like posting social media. In this section (currently called ‘Social’), I’m trying to mirror the stuff I post to social networks. There’s also just a photos page or just a notes page. You can follow what I post here using my whole site RSS feed.

If I had a euro for every time a salaried person from a for-profit company asked me to do work for them for free… well, our not-for-profit organisation would be considerably better-funded.

“If cisgender anti-racists aren’t working to ensure that black trans people can survive and thrive, any commitment that Black lives have always mattered is rendered meaningless.”

“The feminism I’m referring to does not respect the binary structure of gender. And recognising the contribution of non-binary communities is so important, not only in terms of pointing out the concrete issues that we need to address. And of course many of us already know that Black trans women constitute the target of racist violence more consistently than any other community. We’re talking about state violence, we’re talking about individual violence, stranger violence, intimate violence. So if we want to develop an intersectional perspective, the trans community is showing us the way. And we can’t only point to… and we need to point to cases such as the murder of Tony McDade, for example. But we have to go beyond that, and recognise that we support the trans community precisely because this community has taught us to challenge that which is totally accepted as normal. And I don’t think we’d be where we are today, encouraging ever-larger numbers of people to think within an abolitionist frame, had not the trans community taught us that it is possible to effectively challenge that which is considered the very foundation of our sense of normalcy. So if it is possible to challenge the gender binary, then we can certainly effectively resist prisons and jails and police.”

Hmm, might sound nice when a big corp announces that they won’t sell their human rights-eroding tech to police.
How about they don’t build it in the first place.
How about we check they’re doing what they’re saying and it’s not just PR performance.

“People with disabilities are more likely to be a captive audience to apps and websites using their data inappropriately or engaging in other unethical practices.”
YES! This whole article is 🔥. Absolute must-read by Olu Niyiawosusi!
Also appreciate the UK-focus looks pointedly at the brits who dismiss important issues as being a US-based problem. (This article is totally relevant if you’re not in the UK too.)

Stop relying on third-party libraries for core functionality. This post is brought to you by a website where I can’t click a link OR use the scrollbar 😒

Got pissed on champagne because my mother would’ve been 60 today and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
