Pando: Hot or Not founder responds to Nancy Jo Sales' new book: "I don’t think we invented human nature"
Nearly every tweet I’ve read about Nancy Jo Sales’ new book “American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers” has been some variation of “I’m scared to read this.” Indeed by page 20, I started making plans to move to an Amish village by the time my daughter turns 12. The deeper I read, the more I was impressed by many of the young women Sales interviewed, and the more sorry I felt that we've given them this world.  [...] Sales also describes how young girls worship Kim Kardashian and derive their self worth from how many likes they get on Instagram.

I've been viciously attacked for daring to start a women's tech site | Media Network | The Guardian
So yes, my site has ‘feminine’ branding. Yes, we cover fashion and beauty as well as phones and drones. And that is entirely deliberate. It’s okay to be a woman who likes tech. It’s also OK to not like clothes and makeup. But many people seem to believe that to achieve equality, we all have to pretend we’re genderless, faceless ‘users’, and that doesn’t help anyone. Acceptance isn’t about ditching who you are to fit in with the crowd. It’s about the crowd recognising that you have differences and welcoming them.

Former Reddit CEO alleges co-founder Alexis Ohanian fired Victoria Taylor, not Pao
via redd.it/3d6asv // nyti.ms/1gz0Iks // yishan - former CEO :: Alexis wasn’t some employee reporting to Pao, he was the Executive Chairman of the Board, i.e. Pao’s boss. He had different ideas for AMAs, he didn’t like Victoria’s role, and decided to fire her. Pao wasn’t able to do anything about it. In this case it shouldn’t have traveled upstream to her, it came from above her. Then when the hate-train started up against Pao, Alexis should have been out front and center saying very clearly “Ellen Pao did not make this decision, I did.” Instead, he just sat back and let her take the heat. That’s a stunning lack of leadership and an incredibly shitty thing to do. I actually asked that he be on the board when I joined; I used to respect Alexis Ohanian. After this, not quite so much. // Alexis Ohanian "It was my decision to change how we work with AMAs and the transition was my failure[.]" &! tnw.co/1M7IZ0t &! redd.it/3d2hv3 &! bit.ly/1L5f6O5 Sarah Lacy on Reddit & Digg

Gerichtshof urteilt zu Beleidigungen in Nutzerforen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Wenn man im Webforum eines kommerziellen Anbieters beleidigt wird, kann man vom Forenbetreiber Schadensersatz fordern - selbst dann, wenn der die entsprechenden Posts auf Wunsch bereits entfernt hat. Dies entschied am Dienstag der Europäische Gerichtshof für Menschenrechte (EGMR) in Straßburg. [...] Das Gericht betont in einer Mitteilung zu dem Urteil, dass es hier um ein kommerzielles Nachrichtenangebot gehe, und nicht um "andere Foren im Internet, wo von Dritten Kommentare verbreitet werden können, zum Beispiel ein Internetdiskussionsforum, ein Bulletin Board oder eine Social-Media-Plattform". [...] nicht als Einschränkung der Meinungsfreiheit zu werten sei. [...] Betreiber von kommerziellen Nachrichtenangeboten [...] müssen sich nun darauf gefasst machen, für bösartige oder diffamierende Kommentare anonymer Nutzer unter Umständen zur Rechenschaft gezogen zu werden. [...] In DE kann die Polizei bei Verleumdungen oder Beleidigungen verlangen, dass Seitenbetreiber IP-Adresse geben.

Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame - YouTube
In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.

No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry | Polygon
the internet brings out the worst in people and society - because it is frictionless. wait 10 year and we hope we died 10 years ago. // ""You don’t really recover from this kind of abuse. You just change." She’s right. Often, I’ll see people lashing out at women they perceive as too bitchy or too confrontational. They don’t understand that we are the sum of our experiences. The toxic environment causes us to change. If people attack you online, you’re going to get defensive quickly. If people sexually harass you, you’re going to grow more inward, and more protective. It’s a very human reaction, and there is no way to face this daily reality without it changing who you are."

The Supreme Court is about to tackle online threats for the first time | The Verge
The issue before the Supreme Court is whether "a true threat" requires finding that the threatener subjectively intended to be threatening. Elonis is arguing for a subjective intent requirement, claiming that his posts were meant as rap lyrics and not as threats, while the prosecutors are arguing for an "objective" standard—a threat counts as a threat if a "reasonable person" would think the statement is a threat. The government is arguing that it’s enough to use an objective standard, with an exception for "idle or careless talk, exaggeration, something said in a joking manner or an outburst of transitory anger." However, when it comes to the Internet, where context or tone may be more difficult to perceive, this objective standard has obvious drawbacks [...] [UK has] law that forbids electronic messages that are "grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene, or menacing character," [...] "with the intent to intimidate." [...] "[...] most likely to inspire fear of bodily harm."

Intel buckles to anti-feminist campaign by pulling ads from gaming site | The Verge
Intel has pulled an [ad] campaign from [...] Gamasutra after it reportedly received a number of complaints from self-identified gamers upset that the site was championing fair gender representation in video games. The decision by the world's largest chipmaker to remove its [ad] from the site comes as a result of a coordinated campaign called Operation Disrespectful Nod, apparently orchestrated by supporters of the #GamerGate hashtag, who rail against so-called "social justice warrior" writers, journalists, & developers. [...] Her piece argued that the games industry has now ballooned so large that it had outgrown its niche origins, making the concept of the "gamer" a thing of the past. Alexander admitted that change would be difficult for those who still self-identified as a gamer, whose "identity depends on the ageing cultural signposts of a rapidly-evolving, increasingly broad and complex medium," but her message was triumphant. "We're creating culture now. ..." + bit.ly/1CJzGws
