Stress in Research. Part III: The Trouble about Freedom
"The second: The job of a researcher is about creating positive externalities. Our work is to perpetuate and create a large portion of human knowledge. When we succeed, the value of our work is enjoyed by society as a whole, rather than the institution that employs us. This is why the idea of going to my department head for advice on prioritizing is so laughable. We cannot ask the institution what is most valuable, because so much of the value that we create does not return to the institution. You become an academic because you believe the specialized knowledge that fascinates you has, in some small sense, importance to society as a whole. Another responsibility, and another stressor!"

Unilever's rules for influencer marketing | WARC
- that its influencer efforts focus not just on a product, but on attempts to covey a brand’s purpose – as shown by Dove, the personal care line, focusing on “real beauty”.

“We are using influencer marketing for Dove across the whole spectrum. In some cases, we use influencers to talk about the features and benefits of the products,” Di Como said.

“But, more and more, we are using them to talk about the idea to buy into – to talk about the brand value, of why the brand exists, and the purpose of the brand.”

“There is an obsession that the only KPIs out there are ‘reach’ or ‘number of followers’,” said Di Como. “We need to talk about what the real impact is on brand equity – the real impact on the values of the brand.” - which is interesting as I heard that there were efforts to move away from brand tracking surveys and instead interpolate the equivalent data from social listening

Accessible SVG Icons with Inline Sprites - 24 Accessibility
If we were searching for reasons to use icons on a project, we don’t need to go far in order to find them. As Oliver Reichenstein wonderfully put it in his talk “On Icons” at Smashing Conference Freiburg 2016: “At a certain stage in a project someone always comes in and says: ‘We need icons!'” And why do people need icons?

Apple Sucked Tumblr Into Its Walled Garden, Where Sex Is Bad - Motherboard
Robert Yang, a game designer who created a game with a plot about leaked dick pics, told Motherboard in a Twitter message that Tumblr turning on Safe Mode was a turning point for his work—and now that the platform is banning it altogether, it’s not clear what will happen to these kinds of works.

“It's kind of sad, because when I was evaluating different platforms to use for this, Tumblr was basically the only one that seemed big enough / with an art-oriented community / with a decent API / that would stand the test of time,” Yang said. “As someone who makes computer-based art, I worry a lot about preservation, and it kinda makes me wonder how much art and culture is getting destroyed here. Erotic art and sexuality is especially over-policed by platforms, by credit card companies, by fucked up laws like FOSTA.”

The communities that will feel this change the most will be the already-marginalized. “Tumblr banning adult content is a huge loss for the LGBTQ community, especially those with overlapping marginalized identities,” Kitty Stryker, a queer porn performer and consent activist, told Motherboard in an email. “For many, that's the one place we could find porn that represents us, made by indie performers who created their own content outside of an often racist, transmisogynist, fatphobic industry. Tumblr was where our content could exist without pushing us into the restrictions of a misogynist, male dominated workplace.”
