DIFFERENCES  - 
 
This is  a great list, roundup. Number 14 & 16 really hit on this week's discussion. 
On a day that honors one of the (female) pioneers of computer science, our second annual round-up of our work on women in technology.

General Discussion  - 
 
"Lovelace may have had her own Google Doodle last year, to mark her 197th birthday, but she isn’t exactly spoken of in the same breath as Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.

Ada Lovelace Day is about shining the spotlight on her achievement and inspiring more women into careers in the technology sector."

I am sorry to miss tonight's discussion. I'm very interested in Tara McPherson's piece on the histories of race and computation. In fact, the whole anthology of Debates in Digital Humanities grabbed me.  McPherson charts the history of UNIX with a history of consciousness, and she argues that covert racism and color blindness were ported into the computational system, both functionally and philosophically. It's a heady read that I'm still chewing on.

I also read Maria Fernandez's "Cyberfeminism, Racism, and Embodiment." This piece is more of a survey of different theories and modes of thinking. She doesn't go too deep into any particular point. For example, I was interested in the racial critique of Haraway's cyborg manifesto; I wish she would have expanded on that. Also, her discussions of embodiment and unlearning racism; they were too brief. I would've liked to hash that out more. 

I was also excited to learn about Black Girls Code. I found this organization so relevant to the conversation McPherson raises in "Why Are the Digital Humanities So White?" I'm very excited by the Girls Code movement; surely, a BGC chapter is needed in SA.

No problem; I've just been frustrated as a SDL trying to find a conversation!  But I think I've found it now.

I love the huge grin on Waldron's face as he shares his code with legendary Steve James of "Hoop Dreams" and "The Interrupters."
With Popcorn, filmmakers can incorporate Google Maps, Twitter streams, news feeds, and many other assets into something as simple as a movie trailer, making it far more interactive.

Here, here.
My colleague Emily Yoffe wrote in Slate today about the alarming frequency of a certain sad news story: “a young woman, sometimes only a girl, who goes to a party and ends up being raped.” Yoffe goes on to argue that parents, schools, and sexual assault prevention experts can help...

In thinking about Difference and Third World feminism, this transmedia movement is rich and layered with accomplishments and critiques.

Help Black Girls CODE receive a $50,000 grant by voting for them. There are a lot of great organizations on this page.

Amy Adele Hasinoff’s work on sexting, social media, and sexuality is cracking relevant today.

Hasinoff’s deconstructs an AdCouncil PSA campaign that warns girls against sending a “hot pic” to a boy who requests one. In this campaign, and much of the national dialogue around sexting, the onus is on the girl to not produce an image of her sexuality. She produces the image and sends it to a trusted partner, and she is blamed. The people who forward the image, against her will or knowledge, are not held accountable for sexual harassment.

Hasinoff compares this anti-sexting campaign to one which blames sexual harassment on the way a woman dresses. Here, it’s not the medium that is the problem but it's the continuation of blaming the victim. Hasinoff posits: ‘Instead of “think before you post,” how about “think before you forward?”

Boils down to "connect and deliver," and demonstrates w/ a Johnny Depp analogy, which is the principle reason it's getting a link+click.

I climbed Mt. Taishan for the sunrise, rode my bike along the Yangtze River, and swam in Ha Long Bay. Years later, I labored 42 hours before giving birth to a daughter with 12 fingers.
