Job opportunities for people with CouchDB skills

Time to relax!

  • “While women are mostly thought of as the target of online harassment, the three creators of the guide intentional about addressing intersectional issues. Bracey Sherman pointed to all of the anti-Muslim rhetoric currently flying around, noting, ‘We really wanted to talk about all of the ways in which all bodies—bodies of women, bodies of queer folks—really experience this online.’” – Anita Sarkeesian and others introduce a guide to protecting yourself online
  • The problem is that the idea that women are not as good is so deeply embedded in the mind of so many people in positions of power, that it is not even recognized. It’s a belief system that leads one to automatically and without awareness, connect ‘women’ with ‘lower standards” and ‘woman as good as a man’ with ‘the exception.’” – It’s Not Foot in Mouth Disease
  • “This guy, in true ‘thinker’ fashion, has decided he knows how people who work on codes of conduct theorize and conceptualize them without apparently ever having talked to any of us.” – My “Theory” of Codes of Conduct
  • “The shadow is everything about ourselves that we do not know or refuse to know, both dark and light. It is the sum total of the positive and negative traits, feelings, beliefs, and potentials we refuse to identify as our own. The shadow is that part of us that is incompatible with who we think we are or are supposed to be.” – Reboot Podcast, Reclaiming The Shadow – with Tracy Lawrence
  • “It is not dependent on how many of your body parts are working “as expected”. It is not dependent on all of the expected ones even being present. You can have a chronic illness, a mental health issue, a disability, or a temporary injury. You are not broken. You are valuable the way you are.” – You matter.
