My father taught me that men would treat me badly, and that I would be better served to pursue the things that interest me and ignore the men as best I could. In many ways, I have - my interests are all over the map in terms of traditional "girl" and "boy" interests. But I've still been driven out of places because the men were too awful.

So dudes, every wistful reflection on the people who made open source into what it currently is? There's a woman taking notes about whether you're safe.

My advisor just sent me an email saying he tried to avoid pronouns when introducing me to his class yesterday and that he is sorry if he misgendered me.

Hey everyone. The Wandering Shop was down for a while, but is now fixed. Thanks for your patience.

Hi folks! I forgot the mention here that last week I launched a Kickstarter to buy a risograph (nominally to make zines, really to help risoprint things for artists in the Bay Area and beyond)

Backing and/or boosts much appreciated.

Real question inspired by @monteiro@twitter.com’s Ruined by Design:

How much of the industry could we change if we “just” got everyone at #xoxofest to join a union?

Hi everyone! I have turned off registration for new accounts on the Wandering Shop.

We used to require registration approval, but even that was getting flooded with spam that myself or @Annalee had to churn through to try and find the "good" users.

So now registration is invite-only. And any of you can create an invite code under settings!

Please be mindful of who you're inviting, but invite anyone you want.
