I wrote up my thoughts on "Lean Out: The Struggle for Gender Equality in Tech and Start-Up Culture": https://anaulin.org/blog/book-notes-lean-out-shevinsky/
Thanks for this review! I find that most "solutions" for the problems that plague tech start from a shallow/non-existent analysis of 21st century capitalism and are mired in liberalism that holds that the only suggestions we can entertain are the ones that ensure that nothing changes for the ruling classes. As a radical feminist techie, I think the best thing we can do is disrupt the status quo and spark imaginations...something like a techno-Situationism maybe 🤔
Yes! Maybe we should put together our own anthology, with more imaginative alternatives.
@kavbojka Lean In? Peace Out.
@kavbojka Ugh does anyone even say that anymore. I'm old.
No idea. I am also old.
I like Peace Out. The image of a bunch of people at a table looking at a freshly emptied chair.... but my concern is: Where is the confrontation? A reason I don't leave is because I want to stay in the fight...although to think of it consumers should have just as much right to protest 🤔 Maybe it should be called "Look Out!" and then the cover image of a molotov cocktail flying into a conference room.
@anaulin I like that too!
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
