At #MSBizAppsSummit trying to give this #CringeWorthy #WomenInTech panel the benefit of the doubt. They chose a white actress #GinaDavis to #keynote a #DiversityInTech chat. Hmmm. #refactrtech #womenwhocode #DiversityAndInclusion @RefactrTech @Microsoft
Gina Davis: we don't have enough #female #rolemodels [in tech] so we need to make them up [in film]. If she can see it she can believe it. Me: #BS there are many awesome #womenintech who could be speaking here. Still trying to give this keynote a chance.
Gina Davis on #metoo: Just don't take your dick out and we'll be fine. Me: that's a pretty low bar. #Refactrtech #womenintech #womenwhocode #DiversityInTech #MSBizAppsSummit

My mentions are full of tweets about Snitchtasha, so I wanted to put something positive out there: my work! This week was a big week for me because FOUR interviews with me were published. First I refreshed my website (interview links follow): cprescodweinstein.com
The first interview to release this week was a super thrilling interview with the glorious and distinguished SUNY Albany Professor Janell Hobson in Ms. Magazine. Prof. Hobson really let me think out loud about what it means to be #BlackandSTEM.

Next came a discussion with @gregmepstein for @TechCrunch about #decolonizeSTEM and #diversity in #technology. Greg asked super thoughtful questions!! techcrunch.com/2019/05/08/dec…

Since people have been asking I thought I'd recap my #dystopia talk at @theuxcrunch from Thursday. The examples used are not what if scenarios. These all happened. #triggerwarning's apply. If you can make it thru to the end I have suggestions for how we can claw back some hope.
This is a quote you’ve all probably seen a million times. #Advertising & #techie shitheads love quoting it before they do trends porn. What they never seem to understand is how politically subversive the last bit is. B/c those wankers abuse it I swore I’d never use it.
Still, paraphrasing it is useful for my point. One person’s future is another person’s dystopia and thanks to the fundamental power of the Internet as a tool for distribution we can spread dystopia far and wide. Often before we know it, realise it, or even imagine it.

A friend recently asked me why I'm so adamant that a #callforpapers must have a #diversity #inclusion section. Wouldn't a blind, merit-based selection process lead to better content? They were convinced by my answer, which I share here. Thread:
#webdev #tech #drupal #drupaleurope
Consider three sessions covering the same broad subject area. Speaker A's proposal is short and only covers the basics. Speaker B's proposal contains spelling and grammatical errors and unconventional English. Speaker C's proposal is well-written, comprehensive, and in-depth. 1/
Speaker A is a woman who has #impostorsyndrome and is harassed by anonymous men on Twitter who belittle her decade-long expertise. She writes a short and basic proposal because she is no longer confident in her skill. Speaker C is a man whose expertise is seldom questioned. 2/

1/ The latest tech (Uber) lawsuit underscores a frightening blind spot in Silicon Valley techcrunch.com/2017/10/26/thr…
2/ The people who are building driverless cars/drone delivery/cameras/health tech/fintech are responsible for much of this behavior
3/ And it is their rush for growth, dash for cash, and quest for the next big thing that should greatly concern us all
