Productivity fail

I have tons to do. How did i spend three and a half hours this morning, from 5 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., reading the last year and a quarter of Candorville?

I've been rocking the work the past week or so. Maybe i should have really fully taken Saturday off like i planned. Because productivity this Sunday wasn't supposed to be an option.

Sledding this morning was good though!

Also read an essay on the women's liberation movement by Jo Freeman,

"freedom of speech on steroids but still fact checked. It has to be free and open. To all people. By any means. Everywhere"

Content has a life cycle of it’s own and the value of content is pretty much built up by it’s freshness (how breaking is the content), how unique is it, and how emotional the content is. Breaking news content will always be in high demand. The life time and stickiness of the content improves with supporting relevant material such as context, facts and opinions, together with providing the audience with the capability of interacting with the content with ratings, comments and topical forums.

Equality for all?

Got some mail from Lambda Legal which put me on their begging list somehow. Their only tagline on the envelope is "making the case for equality" but somehow I knew it was an LGBT rights organization.

Which... is a little problematic.

The unfair legal treatment of homosexual couples and even more so society-wide discrimination against queer people generally is shocking at this stage in history, a shame, and a whole network of injustice that requires redress.

South African Anti-Eviction Campaign: Organizer Speaks at Encuentro 5

Introduction by Suren Moodliar:

Ashraf Cassiem's Saturday evening presentation at e5 concerning the Anti Eviction Campaign that he coordinates in South Africa's Western Cape. Several people have written back trying to locate (or asking me to situate)
the Campaign within the traditions of South Africa's national liberation struggle and/or the global justice movement.

Two reasons for VisionsUnite: How life should be able to be lived; If we all knew about the major injustices

My friend Mary, sitting in front of her computer looking for a job, wrote me via instant message:

"i want to automatically find a job, one that leaves me the weekends or enough time to LIVE and do the work I love."

You only have to reach 99 people.

You only have to reach 99 people.

Well, once there are three million of us in the United States, and sixty million in the world. Us, in this case, meaning people who care enough about making things better to regularly, personally bring news and information about making things better to ninety-nine other people.

That is the larger us, because pretty much every person has something they would work to make better when given sufficient means, motive, and opportunity.

PWGD/VisionsUnite collaborator?

No Hate Groups

Note: groups that attack a specific person or group of people (e.g. racist, sexist or other hate groups) will not be tolerated. Creating such a group will result in the immediate termination of your Facebook account.

This is good, and I'm glad that Facebook, given what they are as a private, for-profit, closed system has chosen to take this stance.

But this doesn't work for a communications infrastructure for a society.

You can't be shutting any group down because you don't like what they say.

we arrive to genuinely question authority but find ourselves in relative isolation - another implied plea @pwgd

Another rallying point for PWGD.

how individual Americans come to genuinely question authority on their own [...] remains a mystery to me. Apparently, each one arrives there by a different personal route. (Well, duh!) Just like I did.

But when we arrive, despite that there are many others like us, we find ourselves in relative isolation, even on the Internet which is supposed to be our great gathering ground.
