FemTechNet Critical Race and Ethnic Studies Pedagogy Workbook
Acknowledging the challenges of teaching these sensitive and contentious topics in a time of economic retrenchment and increasing institutional precarity for departments of ethnic, gender, and humanisitic studies, this workbook is an ongoing project to build resources for faculty members who are often overburdened at their home institutions, but are willing to take on the difficult task of teaching about gender and racial inequity in our information culture.

The end of the 404? Why we need to repair the internet’s crumbling infrastructure | World Economic Forum
The internet is nearly 30, and it’s starting to show signs of age. Links, the foundation of the internet, are in crisis. The pages plagued by dead links are not obscure Wikipedia entries or repositories of cat memes - 49% of hyperlinks in Supreme Court cases don’t work.

Rhizome | A Queer History of Computing - Jacob Gaboury
"This is the first post in a series on the queer history of computing, as traced through the lives of five foundational figures. It is both an attempt to make visible those parts of a history that are often neglected, erased, or forgotten, and an effort to question the assumption that the technical and the sexual are so easily divided." - five men, beginning with Turing

Wendy Chun's talk, the first of a series of talks from this panel that are transcribed here. "As Natalia Cecire has argued DH is best when it takes on the humanities, as well as the digital. Maybe, just maybe, by taking on the inhumanities, we’ll transform the digital as well."

Companies that have paid me so far:

Using the data collection website Daytum I recorded time (in minutes) and cost (in £ GBP) of all my interactions as a consumer... The data's not perfect of course (eg. it's not automated based on GPS), and I rounded up/down as appropriate so that I didn't completely lose my sanity. But it provides a fascinating insight into how I live my life as a consumer, and which brands steal my attention.
