well that escalated quickly

Imagine you forget to watch a new episode of Game of Thrones the night it airs. Even if coworkers stay mum about important plot points, Twitter is abuzz with spoilers. Fortunately, there’s Twivo, a new program that allows Twitter users to censor their feeds from mentioning a certain TV show (and its characters) for a set time period. Jennie Lamere, a 17-year-old girl, invented the software last month—and won the grand prize at a national coding competition where Lamere was the only female who presented a project, and the only developer to work alone. Internet: Meet the reason we need more women in tech.

I’m so excited by all of the teenagers in science and tech that we’re hearing about these days. MORE GIRLS PLEASE!
At SXSW, we talked about how we can’t wait to see the apps fangirls create to make the internet further work the way THEY want. What we may have not said so clearly is that it’s really the way that EVERYONE wants the internet to work. Go girl.
^^^ so into this.
oh no hearing opera suddenly makes me want to play Parasite Eve again

Man I need to get better at remembering the food+caffine+xanax=getting some semblance of my brain back thing.

FACTS ABOUT THINGS:
- TUMBLR WAS GETTING TOO EXPENSIVE. THEIR OPTIONS WERE TO EITHER SELL IT OR SHUT IT DOWN.
- YAHOO SAYS THEY’RE GOING TO LET IT RUN AS AN INDEPENDENT BUSINESS. IN THEORY, NOTHING WILL CHANGE EXCEPT FOR WHO’S LEGALLY OWNING IT.
- NOW EVERYONE CALM DOWN.
Why does this fandom not understand that endorsing/belittling/laughing at Milah’s death is basically endorsing/belittling/laughing at violence against women? How do you not get that?
Regardless of what Milah did (which was, in fact: leave her husband and child and lie about it. The manner of which was cowardly, and she admitted this and apologized for this - hardly “deserving” of brutal murder. We have since found out that she very much regretted leaving Bae and wanted to come back for him) she was completely stripped of any agency, any power to fight back, and made to watch helplessly as the life was drained out of her.
Look at the pain and terror and helplessness in her face:
Why? Not because of a heinous crime she committed.
Because a man was in a jealous rage and decided to play judge, jury, and executioner.
This same man is beloved and eagerly excused by a large portion of fandom. Oh. His feelings were hurt. She deserved it. Are you hearing yourself, fandom?
This is not okay.
