"Women keep being told that being overwhelmed and overworked and not having any time to ourselves can be solved with scheduling ju-ju and productivity magic and religious self-care because they’re individual problems. They’re not. This is our collective reality and that’s how we need to start addressing it. Collectively."
There are no how-to tutorials or brilliant time hacks that will hack the system in which women are expected to be outrageously successful careerists AND work a second shift of child-rearing and household responsibilities AND put in a third shift of bringing sexy back AND find 30 extra hours a week in which to do leisure properly.

I have several copies of my book "The Columbine Effect" left over from the Legion of Steel Metalfest & Conference, and I also have a Square reader. If you haven't gotten one yet and would like to buy one from me directly, let me know and I can take either cash or credit card. :) (Click through to find out more about the book).

Please consider kicking in for Double Union's fundraiser: Many, many creative spaces have been pushed out of San Francisco. After two years operating in the heart of the city’s Mission District, Double Union was almost one those casualties. Last month, we and the other non-profit tenants of the historic Fog Building on Valencia St. were evicted so the new landlord could renovate the building. We weren't planning to move anytime soon and we had to act fast to save our beloved hackerspace.

We were lucky enough to find a new location in the Portero Hill neighborhood, not far from San Francisco’s growing Dogpatch. It’s much larger, fully ADA compliant, and its industrial location will allow us to work on bigger, noisier projects. The downside is that the rent is much more expensive. At $3,500 per month, it's more than double what we were paying before the move. Although we have plans to stabilize our finances, we need short-term help!

+Kiley Goyette, no specific advice. Feel free to replicate my questions or tweak them to better suit your purposes. Or do something else entirely. :) Would love to see the results you get.

I don’t fault Kleiner Perkins for doing everything it could to cast doubt on Pao’s version of events. After all, she sought more than $100 million in damages; a lot of money, even for a wealthy venture capital company. The problem is that they were able to pull it off. They could do it because we live in a culture where it’s too easy to cast doubt on a woman’s version of events. We live in a culture where she can say she was pressured and tricked into a relationship but others will say she participated willingly. In consumer-protection law, it’s illegal for a product’s label to lie about what’s inside; it’s considered false advertising, even fraud. But when one person does this to another, and they buy into it, many call it consent.
One of the central stories of Ellen Pao’s gender bias trial against Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers was her affair with…

I'm making one last push for responses to my Ingress demographic survey, which I'll close Friday night and work over the weekend to prep a post with the results. If you haven't already, please respond and share with other Ingress communities you're part of. In the meantime, here's a sneak peek at one result.

Scandinavia is a multinational region, not a country; can you fix that?

It's great for folks who have multiple allergies to be able to come to a place like this and have lots of options. I had their chocolate cupcake, chocolate cream pie and peanut butter cookie, and all were tasty and satisfying. The Fremont location is comfortable with plenty of seating. I didn't try the savory foods or drinks, so I can't comment on those.
