Yes, I Put Maple Syrup In My Coffee, And Other Stereotypes I Gleefully Embody.
|Amy Widdowson||Oct 15, 2019|
Hi darlings! A quick one today, because I spent all weekend sleeping and eating and playing with the adorable children of loved ones and reading Alias Grace and visiting Canada’s (self-proclaimed despite what their wikipedia page says) Largest Living History Museum and sleeping some more, so I didn’t actually “read” all that much “on the internet”. I should be a bit closer to normal tomorrow.
Welp, add another one to my list of “Earthquakes I’ve Slept Through”: 4.5-magnitude earthquake hits near San Francisco Bay area. I am a very deep sleeper, but even I’m shocked I didn’t wake up for a 4.5.
Today, in real life nightmare realities: Arrested Japanese stalker used pupil image reflections.
Ugh: “Rubin’s quiet, money-padded exit from Playground and his public reemergence at Essential is yet another example of a male technology executive with sexual misconduct allegations coming back into an industry leadership role and reaping the associated rewards.”
And finally, I love this piece by David Ingram at NBC on how young participants at the Grace Hopper Celebration are “turning the tables” in sponsor company job interviews by directly confronting potential employers about bias and culture. The piece then does a brief history of the GHC conference and its parent org, and the ways it has pressured companies to release information on equal pay and equal hiring.
Until tomorrow, you lovely humans, you. Be kind to each other.
