Interesting interview, albeit not too recent, with my friend Leila Gharavi touching on many contemporary issues within #society and #technology .
Still relevant now as then: "Today, I would tell you that details only make sense within a big picture. One of the reasons why we can’t close the centuries-old gender gaps (among others), despite all the efforts, is that generation after generation we make ourselves busy attending to the details, which is absolutely necessary but sadly, not sufficient."

The case against teaching kids to be polite to Alexa

When parents tell kids to respect AI assistants, what kind of future are we preparing them for?

Resist & Remember: Weimar - An #Anti-Fascist #RPG

Resist & Remember is an anti-fascist RPG celebrating & commemorating those who stood up to tyranny and often paid the ultimate price.

Never Forget (To Punch #Nazis In The Face)

Resist & Remember: Weimar--is a #roleplaying game built into five narrative Acts. The first four of these Acts cast the PCs as artists, barflies, Communist and Anarchist partisans, filmmakers, performer, socialites, writers, and other assorted trouble makers weathering the sea change in culture and society in #Berlin from the last days of #Weimar Republic through the rise of Nazi Germany. There, you will rub elbows with German artists, thinkers, creators, and other personalities, whose life trajectories parallel those of your characters: some will make it out alive, others will not be so lucky.

Weimar Berlin at the end of the #1920s and beginning of the #1930s was a progressive, liberal cultural hotbed of radical new ideas in art, music, architecture, and writing, as well as a divided political battleground with Anarchist, Monarchist, and National Socialist partisans fighting in the streets (the early 20th Century equivalent of Black Lives Matter clashing with Trump supporters, although nearly every day). The New Woman shook up the societal landscape, with German girls that were more sexually liberated and independent than ever before. At the same time, cabaret performances and theater were racier and more politically controversial than ever, and people of color were the trendiest musical acts at bars and night clubs.

Right.
This is the whole point. Scientists are not out there, working every day to screw us over.

#medical #science works on #vaccination for our #health, while #quacks, possibly inspired by foreign regimes, want you to believe in #fake-news. #unfounded #fear is used to spread #illness in the #population and weaken our #society.

Who do you think will benefit from our gullibility?

I knew it!

Anthropologists have found evidence that during preindustrial Europe, bi-modal sleeping was considered the norm. Sleep onset was determined not by a set bedtime, but by whether there were things to do.
That's totally me.

Not really news (original article was from 2016) but it was new to me as I stumbled over it on Mastodon.
