If we truly want gender equality, we need to challenge the assumption that more is always better, and the assumption that men don’t suffer as much as women when they’re exhausted and have no time for family or fun. And we need to challenge those assumptions wherever we find them, both in the workplace and in the family. — Rosa Brooks, in Foreign Policy, on “Why ‘leaning in’ is killing us.” I don’t hate Sheryl Sandberg, but Brooks’ perspective is refreshing, and in citing the fact that we’ve begun to value ubiquity above all, she suggests something I’ve been thinking about a lot: can we be honest that “flexibility” is really just a coping mechanism for working too much, NOT the end-state we should desire. Who’s going to be our generation’s Henry Ford in an era of Sheryl Sandberg?
…while I often preach the importance of online authenticity, I’m left questioning what the digital age can and cannot capture, and what we are even trying to capture in the first place. — digital diva @cschweitz having a change of heart? in @timemagazine Digital Love, Loss and Oversharing | TIME.com
WARNING: Watch this only if you're in the mood for something really, really good -
Even if this pilot didn’t involve my husband, dear friends, and favorite actors (Jeffrey Tambor & Gaby Hoffman), I would be raving about this show.
We’re up to 170 million blogs. Whatever, nbd. But the bigger we get, the more government requests for account data we receive. And since there may be a day when it’s your information they want, it’s important you know what they’re asking for.
Starting today, we’ll be publishing a biannual Transparency Report detailing the number of requests we get from different sources, why we receive those requests, and how we respond to them.
If the report is TL;DR, here’s the upshot: Tumblr received a total of 462 requests for user data in 2013, and responded with account data (e.g., email and IP address) 76% of the time. A small subset of those responses also included content of blog posts (e.g., text, audio, images, or video).
The remaining requests (24%) were illegal, vague, or inaccurate—so we refused to provide any data at all.
Striking the right balance between privacy and legal responsibilities is no small task, but we hope this report demonstrates our ongoing commitment to this community.
Proud of this one. Would be cool if you read it.
Home sick in snowy Brooklyn. Not motivating me to get to DC today… #nofilter #stillontheroad #sniffles #theprettiestnysnow
