Don’t let the screen door hit your ass  on the way out.

Computer Scientist Richard Stallman Resigns From MIT Over Epstein Comments

MIT: Not to be silenced – Danah Boyd

Polar opposite of this – MIT: On Neri Oxman’s Silence About Pedo, Jeffrey Epstein


“But before I begin, I would like to ask you to join me in a moment of silence out of respect to all of those who have been raped, trafficked, harassed, and abused. For those of you who have been there, take this moment to breathe. For those who haven’t, take a moment to reflect on how the work that you do has enabled the harm of others, even when you never meant to.”

” . . .  I am grateful to EFF for this honor, but there are so many underrepresented and under-acknowledged voices out there trying to be heard who have been silenced. And they need to be here tonight and they need to be at tech’s tables. Around the world, they are asking for those in Silicon Valley to take their moral responsibilities seriously. They are asking everyone in the tech sector to take stock of their own complicity in what is unfolding and actively invite others in.”
