Nature suggests I cite people based on gender. Isn't that kind of... the opposite... of where we want to go?

Thank you @sciam for publishing my article on the problematic nature of Star Wars and the term “Jedi”.

I am particularly grateful that I was allowed to use five pseudonyms, one for each of my genders.

Wanted: Cyberpunk story where social ills don't arise from corporates' greed, but from their sheer incompetence in face of the complexity of a digital society. (the result being the same)

TIL that Facebook took effective measures against human trafficking after Apple threatened to prevent all iPhone users from using FB.

So I just listened to the WSJ's *shocking revelations* about Facebook's whitelist, and I almost feel like the actions of a private company cannot be held to the same standard as the rule of law in a modern democracy. 😱

I heard the Taliban are creating safe spaces at their universities by separating students by gender. Really appreciate that.

The common narrative is that kids learn faster than adults, but I’m not sure the difference is meaningful.

Watch any toddler. They spend nearly every waking minute on the edge of their ability and then sleep 12 hours.

If adults acted similarly they would be learning machines.
