I'm on the Lawfare Podcast today talking about the bot panic on mainstream social media and also the benefits (and drawbacks) of decentralized social media:
This was a really funny/fun conversation with the hosts, it should be a pretty entertaining listen.
hey if you're not black and can't get out to protest but wanna help, here's a black covid relief fund that goes directly to black folks who've been affected by covid since they're the ones being disproportionately affected; they can now accept donations via paypay, anything helps!
illinois is having a critically low blood shortage and needs donors--esp african-american donors who're essential to sickle-cell patients; if ur in illinois and feel safe going out/aren't vulnerable strongly consider going to give blood this summer!

nonbinary identities in French? please boost
How do you and your Francophone loved ones manage grammatical gender in French? I have a nonbinary friend who's a native English speaker and is learning French. They're trying to figure it out for themself. They're aware of «iel», and I'm planning to tell them about e.g. «amusant·e·s».
I'm much more interested in direct experiences from nonbinary Francophones and their loved ones than theory. Thank you <3
A call for personal stories of COVID unemployment
Have you been financially affected by COVID-19? Are you still fighting to collect unemployment? Have you struggled to pay for your basic needs or care for your family?
Please consider sharing your story. The Town Hall Project is collecting personal stories of everyday folks to send to Senators and Congresspeople. They are pressuring these representatives to continue approving public funding during this crisis, as well as calling out those who vote against aid that helps the working class.
You can add to this project by filling out the google form here:
The James Talib-Dean Encampment in Philadelphia (formerly lakoy nou, formerly camp maroon), a protest lead and organized by unhoused people demanding permanent housing,
is raising money for *toilets and sanitation* to prevent a Hep A outbreak. They've been using port-a-potties but it's becoming insufficient and the city refuses to assist.
Send donations to $Wrevolutionary please!! I have personal ties to an encampment organizer who has passed this along and this is Legit
