Nice.

If I say, "Black lives matter,"
and you think I mean, "Black lives matter more than others,"
we're having a misunderstanding.

If I say, "White privilege is real and it means White people have some unearned social advantages just because they're White,"
and you think I mean, "White privilege is real and it means White people should be ashamed of themselves just because they're White,"
we're having a misunderstanding.

If I say, "We have a problem with institutionalized racism in our legal system,"
and you think I mean, "We have a problem with everyone being racist in our legal system,"
we're having a misunderstanding.

If we are having these misunderstandings, where are they coming from and what can we do about them?

I am absolutely against Lessig's run for the democratic nomination, but that doesn't mean I don't basically agree with him on the issues, and I'm happy he's doing this.
 
please help me do this quickly, before my team discovers what I'm doing...

I'm against it for a lot of reasons.   First, I don't think he would be a good politician--he gets offended too easily, and you see that in some of the communications that his organization sends.   He winds up dwelling on useless discussions about things nobody cares about, and this tactic would be used to derail him if he managed to get out into the national eye.   I think there is zero chance of him actually getting elected.

Second, he'd take votes from Bernie in the primary, which would be disastrous, because Bernie actually is good at being a politician, and if there is any chance of him getting the nomination, it's in our best interests to make sure that he does.

Third, what he proposes to do is stupid.   The president can't pass legislation.   It's actually an example of the sort of wrong-headed side-tracking that he seems prone to.   He had a good idea with MaydayPAC, and he dropped it like a hot potato to hare off on a wild goose chase of a presidential bid.   Worse, he took a good politician (Zephyr Teachout) out of political candidacy and into running the organization he's supposed to be running.   So we have a net loss of two useful people because he couldn't stick to the plan.

If you wish to refer to what she is saying as "tawdry," then you do indeed claim to be defining the truth.   She seems to have been quite clear in her self-expression in this video, so I don't see how that criticism applies.

Perhaps you could claim, though, that your larger point is still valid, since you have missed her point.   That could be taken to mean that she has failed to express herself effectively.   So I will restate her point.   It is not that "um" is something that people ought to use in speech.   It is that its use is something people ought not to criticize without understanding why it is being used.

What she is saying is that women who wish to be heard have to use tactics like the ones she is describing, so as to avoid (in conversaton, not written speech) being interrupted and talked over.   The phenomenon she's referring to is well documented.  It is not something she is imagining, and not a marginal effect easily overwhelmed by lesser tactics.   I applaud her for advising young women to employ this tactic, because it is a tactic that is known to work, combating a very real problem.

It is not the only tactic that works.   I suspect Alison prefers the tactic of utility, where what one says is sufficiently useful that it is contrary to the listener's interest to interrupt.   This is certainly better when it works, but even in cases where in principle that balance of interests applies, it is often the case that the listener still can't get past his cognitive bias.

It would be wonderful if, as a result of a shift in cultural attitudes, it came to pass that at some point in the future her specific tactic was no longer necessary, and fell to disuse.   If that is all you are saying, we do not disagree.   However, your use of pejorative terms like "harpy" and "tawdry" suggests otherwise...

Paul just wrote a really good article on the topic of network security and defense in depth that every IT professional should read, particularly people who work for government and large companies.   If those two demographics followed Paul's advice, the result would be a significant uptick in online safety for everyone.
 
Yo, brothers, sisters, hear me. We have to stop blaming the victims.

I'm still ok with Katherine Archuleta resigning though. That was a massive failure to have on her watch and a lot of people feel OPM was cavalier. But that's political, not technical.

Down at the bottom of the driveway.   But we've had glorious wildflowers this summer, largely because I haven't had time to mow... :)

Listening to +HJ Lim's performance of the Waldstein Sonata.   She is now my favorite performer of Beethoven piano sonatas, without question.   If she's this amazing now, I hope I have the good fortune to hear her play in twenty years.

This was a really heartwarming read.
 
"I couldn’t understand why he wouldn’t communicate to me a strong positive or a strong negative on anything. And it made me realize that no matter how much you study Japanese culture, no matter how many books you read, how many anime movies you watch, nothing can prepare you for being married to and part of a traditional Japanese family.”

This is pretty cool either way, but I wonder if there will be the ability for developers to make custom firmware, as with ChromeOS and Android.   This might be a fun router for homenet hackers to hack on.

Having shared that Ted Talk from Jon Ronson about public internet shaming a while back, it's probably worth sharing this story about Adria Richards, who got pretty thoroughly screwed by Ronson's tunnel vision.   I thought to go look because Ted Tso reported something about SendGrid today and I was wondering why I'd heard about them before.   They're the ones who fired Adria after she reported sexual harassment at PyCon.   What happened to her is a real problem that I don't know how to fix.   It's a shame that SendGrid didn't have more backbone.
[Content Note: Harassment; misogynoir.] Note: When I originally wrote about Adria Richards two years ago, I said that I wished I'd had her consent to do so, but she was under siege and I didn't want to remain silent. This time, I am writing this piece with Adria's consent and input.
