Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence.

Thriving together,

Over the past few years, there has been much discussion about increasing both the number and diversity of voices in the gaming and technology industries. We've lamented the lack of quality writing and coverage on issues of ethnicity and gender, social justice, and the growing impact of these mediums on our lives.

Today, I read the following piece on reAction zine, and was instantly struck by how much I want this resource in my life. If you can, please support reAction zine through their indiegogo campaign. Spread the word! I'd love to see at least one amazing company come through with a corporate sponsorship for this fantastic, ambitious, utterly necessary project.

Exceedingly practical advice. Are you a bad roommate?
 
There are good roommates and there are psychotic, messy, annoying, disrespectful, and otherwise horrible roommates. Let's avoid the latter:
Dear Lifehacker, I’m looking for a new roommate, but I’ve had really bad luck in the past finding reliable, non-crazy people to live with. What should I ask or look for in a potential roommate to make sure we’ll get along?

This is super great.
 
Who could ask for a better pairing than #feminism and #lovecraft ?

I really really really want to play this game and be immersed in its world.
 
This is absolutely brilliant, and hopefully this gets eyes from Nintendo. I would buy a Wii U for this, and I was largely skipping out from buying one. 
This is a great gender flipped re-imagining of Legend of Zelda.

Fair enough. But, what I'm getting at here is it's very likely that most of Valve's income comes from sales of other non-Valve games on steam. If they dropped a bomb like Microsoft did with their latest console, it would obviously hurt their bottom line. A lot.

Another great story of the place where science & ethics meet.
 
Crucial and yet Controversial: WI-38 Cells

• Many people are aware of the history behind HeLa cells; isolated from Henrietta Lacks and used today in thousands of laboratories (http://goo.gl/eOPRW). But did you know about WI-38 cells? Isolated in June 1962 by Leonard Hayflick, these cells came from a legally aborted fetus in Sweden. 

• Isolated at a time when the law did not require consent for the use of tissues in research, there is likely no recourse for the parents of the fetus or their heirs for compensation. Sigma Aldrich, a biotechnology company currently charges $424  for a vial of these cells.

• Unlike HeLa cells which are a cervical cancer cell line, the WI-38 cells are normal. These cells undergo a fixed number of cell divisions, usually 50 and then stop; a process known as cellular senescence

• WI-38 cells were an invaluable tool to culture various human viruses for the manufacture of vaccines; rubella, rabies, adenovirus, polio, measles, chickenpox and shingles vaccines that have saved hundreds of millions of lives since.

• The controversy surrounding these cells still rages on today; because they are derived from an aborted fetus, many pro-life activists object to their use in research. Ironically, "the rubella vaccine, developed using WI-38 cells, has prevented thousands more abortions than have ever been prevented by Catholic religionists" according to Professor Stanley Plotkin, the researcher who developed the rubella vaccine. 

• These cells have a fascinating history, and the full article is well worth a read: http://www.nature.com/news/medical-research-cell-division-1.13273#comments

I'm really glad this flew across my twitter feed this morning. Very salient points re: types of consent and how our culture makes "wearing someone down" until they agree to sex not only acceptable, but "how things are supposed to be".

Crucial advice.
 
Another good reason to use private browsing (a.k.a. porn mode):
Private browsing, a.k.a. incognito mode, is useful for more than just porn. It can protect you against sites (including online banks, health sites, and insurance companies) that are storing your sensitive data on your hard drive when they shouldn't be.

"Girls, especially women of color, are summarily bypassed as far as being accepted as creative, and capable change agents in the tech industry. Black Girls Code was founded to redefine this dominant narrative, to make a radical and fundamental and lasting change in the technology industry.” - Kimberly Bryant at Personal Democracy Forum 2013

I really love this non profit and their mission. Please support them if you can!
