Finding work near New London, CT is going to be about flexibility and redefining the word "near".

"Part of Brianna’s talk was about how it’s not enough to be a nice guy. (This echoed a lot of the concepts in Mike Lee’s incredible talk, as well.) In fact, that mentality is part of the problem. It keeps you from changing anything. It prevents you from taking accountability. We get it; none of you do this on purpose; you still do it. You really need to acknowledge that you are doing it and stop doing it, instead of relying on us to get used to it."

Must read for any tech person.
Perhaps the scariest part of speaking out is seeing the subtle insinuation of consequence and veiled threats by those you speak against.

Work work work. Driving home for lunch is doable but then I have to spend ten minutes of my lunch hour finding a new parking space. No thanks!

Time to head to L.A.!  Tomorrow morning is the half marathon!  I would love to find a Teppanyaki restaurant tonight but I think Chris will want italian pasta instead.

Perfect.  So glad the mainstream media outlets are picking up this topic.

This week, Anita Sarkeesian, known for her series critiquing the portrayal of women in video games, canceled a talk at Utah State University after the school received a threat of a mass shooting.

We speak to game developer Brianna Wu about the threats that drove her from her home in another explosive week for Gamergate - and reflect on its damaging impact

The more I read about these Gamergate ppl, the less impress i am with them... they just seem like a bunch of whiners who rather resort to bullying gaming news outlets for content they don't agree with.

Story
Tagline
Paper pusher library and tech fiend. Not the oxymoron you think!
Introduction
Chicago geeky girl and social media enthusiast.  I play video games, read a ton, use and adore my library, and often run amok on social media.

I'm not a huge Google+ fan, but I won't shut myself out from a social media avenue because I treasure the ability to interact with great minds.

  • Elementary School Library
    Library Assistant, 2007 - 2013
    Juggling everything to do with the library seemed to be key. I knew every student's name. I knew where all the books were supposed to be. I loved showing staff tech bits on the internet.
  • Public Library
    Reference Clerk, 2011 - 2012
    I loved giving tours of the library to adult visitors, and opening their eyes to all the services they didn't know were available.
