I want to see the change that most women in tech long for. At its core, the tech industry is idealistic and dreamy, imagining innovations that could change the world. Yet, when it comes to self-reflexivity, tech is just as regressive as many other male-dominated sectors.

A great article by Danah Boyd on how the tech industry can change its culture.

Twenty seventeen

We were so anxious to start fresh a new, happier year. Unfortunately the news told us differently … people dies. People suffers.
My personal wish is one of love, care and happiness to you all and your belongings. And to learn from a master, and work on ourselves to improve our approach to life, and make this world a better place than the one we were so lucky to live in …

Use wisely your time

“don’t have time for that” is the biggest excuse out there. When someone says they “don’t have time” for something, what they’re really saying is that a task isn’t as important or attractive as whatever else they have on their plate. Every person gets twenty-four hours of time every day and gets to spend those twenty-four hours however he or she chooses.

Google Has Quietly Dropped Ban on Personally Identifiable Web Tracking

for nearly a decade, Google did in fact keep DoubleClick’s massive database of web-browsing records separate by default from the names and other personally identifiable information Google has collected from Gmail and its other login accounts.

The practical result of the change is that the DoubleClick ads that follow people around on the web may now be customized to them based on the keywords they used in their Gmail. It also means that Google could now, if it wished to, build a complete portrait of a user by name, based on everything they write in email, every website they visit and the searches they conduct.

The move is a sea change for Google and a further blow to the online ad industry’s longstanding contention that web tracking is mostly anonymous.
