"Oh, well, so one thing that gets back to the 11th circuit and the First Amendment and the Florida social media law is stuff having to do with we talked a little bit about, well, why is the world different that the bar could kick out the person that they didn't want to serve but not the platform? And the argument being thrown into that is that these platforms are so integral to how society you need to be there because everybody else is there. So if you want to have your life function, you better be on Facebook, which I think is a species notion, but there are obviously big and have very heavy presences. And so that has been the argument for their ability to parse out who they let on their platforms or not. But the thing is, you could in theory get another. You could get another Facebook. You can get a WWW dot Facebook dot com. You can get a WWW dot Twitter dot com. That in theory, you can get an infinite number of other platforms to either facilitate messages or if you want roll your own so you can have your own website and you can point out your own message. And the more that we rely on protocols, instead of the companies, then when you put your message up so it's on the web in a certain way, other people will be able to interact with it. And we don't need the proprietary methods to be able to do that. But then to back up the concern that I have a little bit is, what are the obstacles to being able to roll your own? Have your own web server, have your own mail server, have your own email server. What are the regulatory obstacles? So for instance, we better keep section two 30 because that keeps the regulatory obstacles at the minimum. But then we have privacy regulations sprouting up all over the place. So if you want to start your own fan forum, for instance, it's a much harder decision to make, a more expensive decision to make than it used to be. But it's still makeable. And then what are the practical considerations? It's going to need some technical support. It's going to be some maintenance, now cybersecurity is a big thing. So how do we support it so that people can functionally provide their own independent outlets and then the protocols can make sure that we get the functionality and interconnectivity between the Internet outlets, so as a lawyer, I want to care about, do we have the regulatory space that is making it so we can get another. We can get another Facebook or we can even just get your own platform where you're put out your own message that other people can interact with and you don't even need another platform necessarily and certainly not run one run by a corporation. So from my perspective, I on the ball of what does it take to diminish the barriers so that we don't need to use these companies because we can get what we need there's something we get from them, but we could probably get all those benefits in another way that does not require giving up our privacy and to spend the other thing in order to have accounts on Facebook. There's other ways that we can speak to each other online. We were doing that before Facebook. Let's figure out if we can do that after Facebook as well. Yeah. And to introduce it. Regulation. Regulation. Yeah. But WordPress those things. WordPress is still a very large portion of the web in a blogger still exists. You can go and use that and tumblr too. There's a whole bunch of places you can go and publish your stuff online and talk about things and the many master instances and so on as well. It's more that the challenge is the group of people I want to talk to there. And then you have to do the work to cross post things to publish on one place and then say, and then share it somewhere else, defeat stuff back. And again, we've got tools to help do that and things like that. A little easier, but it still work and still take some setting up. And then the other half of that is, you necessarily want to click them all together. You don't necessarily want every Twitter reply to show up on your blog post. That could be annoying too. Because the way Twitter implies have with both thundering home problems and pylons and things necessarily want them all turning up on your own site. I want to keep that cleaner. So there's some tensions. There's always intentions between my process taken off, oh great, oh, my post has taken off. Now I've got to go and move house. Which is a real problem. Let's see. You want a happy TikTok moment? No. But okay, I'll do it. Yes, a happy TikTok moment. You deflate crypto boy? So much. Yeah, which one of the list well, there's just two moments. And a lap would who I've talked about before is a young woman who is at Cambridge. She heads at one of the colleges there. She directs a chorus. And she goes, and she's a kind of a staff organist at royal leopard hall. So she goes in and she has to go to the middle of the night to practice. And she's there and you play this one. I don't know why it's. How.

"I mean, blue sky, I like some of the people involved. I talked to them, but they seem to think they've been valuing originality over utility. They said we want to do something new and different, and we said, well, here's how you do it with existing protocols, look we've been doing for ten years and they go, oh, but that's not new enough. It's like, yes, that's the point. The point is that we know how to do interop Twitter like interop with existing protocols for example, indie web is about. We've built 6 or 7 different protocols. We've simplified some existing ones. We've got them through W3C, we found a whole bunch of work on this. You're getting people to adopt them and so on. But they're saying, well, we really don't want to use DNS. We don't want to use NS URL. So we're going to make up some new signature thing that's based on cryptography. You can sort of argue that but actually it's really annoying. You end up with things that aren't names unit with things that are long strings of hex digits, which is one of the nightmares of all the NFTs and Bitcoin or you've got two magic long strings and you're supposed to give someone one or not the other. And if you give them the other one, then they take your apes. There's a we have a way to do distributed namespaces across the Internet. It's called DNS. It's worked very well. There was a time where we had to put some political structure in place to deal with it, which is I can. We have that now and making new ones is not actually enormously helpful. Twitter got away with very new namespace, but basically their namespace is put Twitter dot com before this and then you've got the name. And they've hit the problem that they're running out of them now. So all the new names have got 6 digits after them as well. So what they do is very nicely all of those people, yes. Yeah, but you remember Jeff, we linked to each other on blogs. It isn't actually hard to link to someone's blog. Or even their post, but you can link their names into the document that works. And we've got protocols now that when I link to your blog, my blog can tell you I've linked to it, and you can take what I've done onto the end. You know how to do that. We're working with different groups to adopt more of it. But the challenge is not the protocols, the challenge is people trying not to interoperate. This is exactly what the problem I had with open social 14 years ago it was, where we did the work to get things written to operate, and then everyone said, actually, we'd rather not interoperate, we want to own everything. Facebook did it first, and then Google said, yeah, no, we want to do it too, which is why I didn't work there afterwards. And nobody owns anything. I agree with Chris second point, which is that the current web is basically run by corporations and the value. No, I don't agree with that at all. I think the web is fine. I think the structure of corporations is a problem, but the way you don't fix that by more financialization and nonsense. Right. Right. We already have systems that are democracy democratized that work perfectly well. You fix it by finding a group of people who actually want to interpret it again and working with them. And talking to them. So that system you talked about is web mention, right? Yes. So that's one of the pieces of it. Yeah, but the specific one of to build a sort of distributed toilet like app reply thing is web mention. So if Jeff writes a post and I reply to it, I can web mention him and it can appear under his post if he has web venture supporting software. And vice versa, he can reply to me and we've got the infrastructure for doing that. Can we get people to use this? Do you get them to do something that supports it? My credit blog supports it. We're working on getting other people's footage, we're having an interesting conversation with tablet this week. Where we're trying to get tumblr to support the web stuff and we're getting strong support from running away from the COO of tumblr to do some work to meds fantastic. I have to say, there's a guy who was a champion of open. Matt Matt's great. And if we can get on tumblr, great, and then we can maybe get on WordPress two and then we've got like half the web. Yeah, literally. Matt mullenweg is the creator of WordPress. Twitter. As well as you definitely set me off. Good. But keep going. You're probably Twitter is exactly the problem you said. It's like, it's the place where you're news buddies are. Which is why it's great and it's why I like it. There's a bunch of other parallel tools that go on, but the global journalist Twitter is an important part of Twitter. And the challenge is it's the same challenge that. We had with Google reader and with Facebook's news products is the problem is news is news and ad businesses don't really go very well together, especially you all made that businesses. Because running out against news is a tricky business at the best of times, but also the people don't know what they do. The classic thing of you don't want to get adverts next to plane crashes, but the machine will provide that for you if you're not very careful. So it's sort of gets naturally rejected by these ad supported businesses. So the reason Rita didn't last was they're like, well, there's Google was like, the right enough people using it. It's like the people who are using it are using it like 1600 times a day and they're the people who actually want to use it because they're the ones who are writing about your about your products, but it didn't quite get that. It's not quite a little conversation. It's fairly close to the conversation. And Twitter has the same problem. It's like the journalists love it. And they like the attraction of that part of it, but in terms of ads that isn't that isn't the way they're making the money yet. Anyway, and technorati was that too. We had that same problem as we built that tool for it was primarily for journalists and news. And we had the continuous problem of like, how do we make money from this? Because that doesn't correlate well with advertising. There was a wonderful tool. Oh, it was great. I miss technorati. I really do. But we can build a distributed technological writing with this stuff if we want to build a centralized way if we really want to again, but I'm not sure I want to take that on again. But the other half is you spend a lot of time dealing with spam. Anyway, so everywhere, isn't it? Yeah. So there's a sort of the problem of do we have interfering particles? Yes, we do. We've got individuals working protocols, and we've got layers of them that we've got choices, lots of different layers. We can do this stuff, but it takes some will to actually want to interoperate. And then the other problem is, there is a tension between ad supported and news, and it's not something that's trivially solvable. And it's a problem for new sites as well. The other coronary of that is that the news that's good and it has had time to spend on it is now behind paywalls and the propaganda isn't. And that's the other thing that eats away at it as well. Exactly. So yeah, there's some sort of thing that gets back,.

"Whatever you feel like. This is about you. My name is Chloe corcoran. Had I not been trans, I would have coached college football. Really? I'm Cy Clark Chan. I am one of those old dried up people who's already lived their best life. Is that okay? My name is Mariana marquin. Mommy, what do you think about this booty? How you feeling? Too much? Yeah. My name is Jeffrey J and so like I had to come out as transgender. But my mom had to come out as Republicans. About three months ago, a documentary crew followed us around recording our every move. They captured us navigating everything. And that's what you're about to hear. From being studios in lemonade media, an audio reality original. This is being trans. This is being trans. Out April 28th, wherever you get your podcasts. Hey, I see why my guys. If you love our podcast, then consider subscribing to slate plus. Number one means you will get no ads on any sleep podcast. Number two, it means you'll be supporting not only our show, but every slate show. And number three, I've lost count. I think we're at three. You'll get bonus segments, an extra episodes of shows like slow burn, amicus, political gab fest, culture gap fest, mom and dad are fighting. The list goes on and on, lots of good stuff. You'll also get unlimited reading on the slate website, which means access to every article, and every juicy juicy advice column without ever hitting the paywall. Just visit slate dot com slash IMI plus to sign up. That slate dot com slash IMI plus. All right, we are back with Dion Barry, the founder of the tumblr blog, the infamous tumblr blog, this is white privilege. And once again, Rachel's gonna take it away. I'm kind of sensing some ambivalence about the place that this is white privilege. And the legacy that the bog has. And so why did you stop moderating it? What was kind of the breaking point? So I think it burnt out in the sense that I became interested in other things. I heard someone describe tumblr once as the abandoned clown factory on the other side of the Internet. That's really good. But part of it is like, I had an urge to make a transactional. I had the urge to make it into a website or to publish it into a book or something along those lines. But I think the ambivalence really comes from, I don't like dumbing down the conversation. I think that when I was 20 or 22, I felt like I knew everything. And I felt like it was so simple, and it was so black and white. And so easy to understand. And that if you disagree with me, that means you hate black people. And if you don't like the way I run the blog, it means that you're just a racist period. And I was just so full of vinegar and anger and I just don't think that reflects the way I feel now at 31 I feel a lot different about how to express some of that stuff than at 21. If I ever had to go back through and read, it's probably some of the ways I spoke to people on that blog. I would probably be embarrassed. I'd probably want to go back and apologize to them. I'm curious, actually, did you see the times op-ed from the person who ran your favor problematic? Because it really touches on a lot of the things that you're saying. No, I would love to read that because your favorite problematic holds a fascinating place in the discourse too, I think. Definitely. But what do you think of it? Tell me about that place it holds. Yeah, so your favorite problematic was great because it great and horrible in the sense that the Internet. Yes. I think that it also did a similar thing that this is white privilege did, which was it was a format that was so digestible and easy to understand that it taught people a lot and also dumbed the conversation down so much that it was difficult to come back from. The same person who called tumblr the abandoned clown factory also said that Twitter sometimes threatened to reach the tumbler event horizon. And I think that this is why privilege and your favorite problematic were part of that event horizon where the conversation got so easy that you no longer had to think to participate in any of this stuff. We weren't teaching any critical thinking. We were discouraging critical thinking. There was a time where we said that it was problematic to ask a question. And that is wild to me. It's interesting to me that the nuance you're describing and what sounds like how to large part and you decide to step away from moderating this tumblr is the mantle that has been picked up and weaponized by this community online. We're talking about now. Yeah, I do think so. I think it's been I think there are people and I'll point the finger to myself. Number one, I was attracted to the amount of attention and quote unquote power and the voice that I had on 2013 to 2016 tumblr. I was learning for the first time what my ability was to mobilize a group of people on the Internet, which is now my job and what I do professionally. But there is something that will always rot what you bring to the table when part of your motivation involves the power you get from it, the serotonin shot in your brain when you can force Tyra Banks to apologize for a character she played on a fake reality show 15 years ago. Do you kind of see a lineage between, I guess, this is white privilege, but also kind of that tumblr discourse of like 2013. And the Internet today. The circle around this point. Yeah, I'm wondering if you guys do. I feel like I've been on the thing today. But I think that, no, I think there's an influence on what we were doing on tumblr at that time frame. I don't know if it's just looking at it from my narrative scope in the sense that I learned about a lot of the stuff for the first time on tumblr, and then I was able to take it to other places. Now when I see a phrase on Reddit or Twitter or TikTok that I first heard on tumblr, like, of course, I connected with tumblr. But did tumblr actually have a legacy on the whole Internet for that? I'm not sure. I know that other social media channels did not feel to me to be breeding grounds for those conversations, to me they happened on tumblr. Yeah. I mean, I hesitate to say this, even though semi true, I kind of grew up on tumblr and that I got on tumblr when I was in high school, which I think is when your brain is the softest and therefore the most susceptible to. A lot of this stuff and it's been interesting seeing the way, as you've said before, the kind of raw anger you have at that age change into something different. And so I don't know if it's tumblr specific or the fact that we all just retread the same things every 6 years on the Internet because they don't have the memory of a goldfish, but so much of what's happening right now. Is like so deeply familiar in a way and I don't know if it's just because there's a new generation of people who don't who weren't on tumblr and therefore aren't nearly as exhausted by it or if.

"tumblr" Discussed on The Secret History of the Future

"Slash loan offers. All right, we are back with our interview with dionne Barry, who, as I mentioned, is the creator of the tumblr blog, this is white privilege. This is a conversation Rachel and I both had with Dion in April of last year. So here's Rachel kicking things off. First, thank you for joining us. Truly wondrous time. Yeah, so I guess my first question is, when did you first join tumblr? Oh, okay, so I first joined tumblr in the year of our lord 2010. I was, yeah, I was in my college dorm room with my roommate, Michael schramm. We were doing homework and he just turned to me and he was like, you know what? We should get tumblers. And I was like, why? And he's like, you know, because I think it's really good for musicians and it's really like artsy and stuff like that. So we should get tumblr. And I was like, okay, so I signed up for my tumblr in 2010. And yeah, that's kind of how it started. You also said in your email that tumblr discourse was wild. So can you tell me about your experience on tumblr, which is kind of a lot to sum up, but we love impossible questions. Yeah, so I guess it really starts with, you know, when I signed up in 2010, I was just starting to get into socialism as a concept. So that was just what I was putting on my tumblr. And then that's kind of where the followers started to come in. I will say the beginning it was fragmented, right? There was a socialist tumblr. There was a feminist tumblr. There was a black people tumblr with all these different little political sub pockets that were going on. That eventually converged into one big thing that turned into what we would all call tumblr discourse. So we should probably talk about your moderator era, yeah. I remember that there was a VMAs, it may have been the VMAs in 2013. And that was the first time I saw a real convergence of the multiple different tumblr discourse sections. I remember that night was Tyler, the Creator winning a VMA. And that caused a big argument. And that's the very first big political argument I ever remember on tumblr. Because the discussion was Tyler, the Creator is homophobic. Oh, he's also a misogynist, but he's pro black, but you can't judge black people for what they create to get out of poverty. So it was like a big thing that was going on, and that's when I first started to use that term white privilege, or when I first heard the term white privilege. And that's kind of what prompted me to start. This is why privilege, which was the tumblr blog that I moderated. So I guess in your own words, what do you kind of describe what you think this is white privilege did and what kind of gap you see it filling in the discourse? In the discourse, I'll say that the legacy that it had was that there was a big offshoot of other this is blank privileged blogs. I think the gap that it filled was it took a very complex topic, which was privileged, and it simplified it into these small bite sized chunks that were easier to understand. And the kind of basis of the blog was, oh, if you're someone who doesn't believe in privilege and you say, oh, show me an example. Well, here is a million bajillion examples of how white privilege works and how it functions. Dion for maybe some of our listeners who weren't online in the era that was tumblr. Could you describe like a quintessential, this is white privilege post or your platonic ideal level, this is white privilege post? Oh, yeah. The post would be a really simple text post. It would just say something like white privilege is textbooks being written by people who speak the same dialect that you speak. Another example would be like white privilege is every hiring manager that you meet looks like you. Little things like that. It was really almost a list of microaggressions if you will. I tried to avoid doing big, long essays or anything like that. Just stuck with just small everyday examples of how white privilege impacts the lives of people of color. What was your inbox like? My inbox was very fraught. There were a lot of people who were very angry about the blog. You know, it's tumblr in 2013. There are rape threats and death threats. And there's racial slurs. All of that stuff was being kind of hurled at me on a pretty consistent basis. And then there was just legions coming into the inbox who wanted to submit stuff when the blog first started to take off. And I haven't looked at it in years, so I can't remember how many followers it ended up in, but it was tens of thousands of followers to this blog who would submit examples of white privilege. So I mean, looking back, I probably wouldn't put myself in that position again to on one level how people hurling racial slurs at me and then on the other level have people lifting out all the ways in which society finds unequal, probably not the best mentally healthy thing that expose yourself to. But you know, when you're 23 and you're kind of drunk on the attention, it feels a lot different. You said earlier, you kind of refer to this time as the discourse era. And I'm curious as to how you see this is why privilege and its function fitting into the discourse era. So I think that there's two levels of what the discourse looked like, right? They were at the beginning when we were all just talking about feminism and racism and homophobia and misogyny and stuff like that. Then there became, once it was a simple way to explain it, and anytime you make something simpler, it has the ability to make it worse, right? It has the ability to make it not as effective. Privilege is a huge, huge, huge conversation. And I was trying to simplify it. So therefore, you had people break off into blogs like this is pretty privilege, or this is clean privilege, was one that popped up, where people were saying that there was a oppressive structure against people who didn't shower or didn't smell good. I hope I contributed something positive to a lot of people.

"Slash loan offers. All right, we are back with our interview with dionne Barry, who, as I mentioned, is the creator of the tumblr blog, this is white privilege. This is a conversation Rachel and I both had with Dion in April of last year. So here's Rachel kicking things off. First, thank you for joining us. Truly wondrous time. Yeah, so I guess my first question is, when did you first join tumblr? Oh, okay, so I first joined tumblr in the year of our lord 2010. I was, yeah, I was in my college dorm room with my roommate, Michael schramm. We were doing homework and he just turned to me and he was like, you know what? We should get tumblers. And I was like, why? And he's like, you know, because I think it's really good for musicians and it's really like artsy and stuff like that. So we should get tumblr. And I was like, okay, so I signed up for my tumblr in 2010. And yeah, that's kind of how it started. You also said in your email that tumblr discourse was wild. So can you tell me about your experience on tumblr, which is kind of a lot to sum up, but we love impossible questions. Yeah, so I guess it really starts with, you know, when I signed up in 2010, I was just starting to get into socialism as a concept. So that was just what I was putting on my tumblr. And then that's kind of where the followers started to come in. I will say the beginning it was fragmented, right? There was a socialist tumblr. There was a feminist tumblr. There was a black people tumblr with all these different little political sub pockets that were going on. That eventually converged into one big thing that turned into what we would all call tumblr discourse. So we should probably talk about your moderator era, yeah. I remember that there was a VMAs, it may have been the VMAs in 2013. And that was the first time I saw a real convergence of the multiple different tumblr discourse sections. I remember that night was Tyler, the Creator winning a VMA. And that caused a big argument. And that's the very first big political argument I ever remember on tumblr. Because the discussion was Tyler, the Creator is homophobic. Oh, he's also a misogynist, but he's pro black, but you can't judge black people for what they create to get out of poverty. So it was like a big thing that was going on, and that's when I first started to use that term white privilege, or when I first heard the term white privilege. And that's kind of what prompted me to start. This is why privilege, which was the tumblr blog that I moderated. So I guess in your own words, what do you kind of describe what you think this is white privilege did and what kind of gap you see it filling in the discourse? In the discourse, I'll say that the legacy that it had was that there was a big offshoot of other this is blank privileged blogs. I think the gap that it filled was it took a very complex topic, which was privileged, and it simplified it into these small bite sized chunks that were easier to understand. And the kind of basis of the blog was, oh, if you're someone who doesn't believe in privilege and you say, oh, show me an example. Well, here is a million bajillion examples of how white privilege works and how it functions. Dion for maybe some of our listeners who weren't online in the era that was tumblr. Could you describe like a quintessential, this is white privilege post or your platonic ideal level, this is white privilege post? Oh, yeah. The post would be a really simple text post. It would just say something like white privilege is textbooks being written by people who speak the same dialect that you speak. Another example would be like white privilege is every hiring manager that you meet looks like you. Little things like that. It was really almost a list of microaggressions if you will. I tried to avoid doing big, long essays or anything like that. Just stuck with just small everyday examples of how white privilege impacts the lives of people of color. What was your inbox like? My inbox was very fraught. There were a lot of people who were very angry about the blog. You know, it's tumblr in 2013. There are rape threats and death threats. And there's racial slurs. All of that stuff was being kind of hurled at me on a pretty consistent basis. And then there was just legions coming into the inbox who wanted to submit stuff when the blog first started to take off. And I haven't looked at it in years, so I can't remember how many followers it ended up in, but it was tens of thousands of followers to this blog who would submit examples of white privilege. So I mean, looking back, I probably wouldn't put myself in that position again to on one level how people hurling racial slurs at me and then on the other level have people lifting out all the ways in which society finds unequal, probably not the best mentally healthy thing that expose yourself to. But you know, when you're 23 and you're kind of drunk on the attention, it feels a lot different. You said earlier, you kind of refer to this time as the discourse era. And I'm curious as to how you see this is why privilege and its function fitting into the discourse era. So I think that there's two levels of what the discourse looked like, right? They were at the beginning when we were all just talking about feminism and racism and homophobia and misogyny and stuff like that. Then there became, once it was a simple way to explain it, and anytime you make something simpler, it has the ability to make it worse, right? It has the ability to make it not as effective. Privilege is a huge, huge, huge conversation. And I was trying to simplify it. So therefore, you had people break off into blogs like this is pretty privilege, or this is clean privilege, was one that popped up, where people were saying that there was a oppressive structure against people who didn't shower or didn't smell good. I hope I contributed something positive to a lot of people. I know, I know a lot of people learned about privilege for the first time through that blog, but I also wonder, you know, did I dumb down the conversation so much that I ended up having a negative impact maybe. We're both obviously really enjoying this conversation with dionne and don't worry he's not going anywhere, but we do need to take just a quick break. We'll be right back.

Goblin Mode (MM #4034)

"The NASA minute. With Kevin mason. One of the struggles of being a baby boomer is to try to stay engaged with the rest of the world. So the world doesn't pass you by. At least for some of us, we try to remain connected to the current slang. The other day I saw a news story where I realized it was somewhat out of touch, at least with some slang, some urban dictionary slaying, somebody was talking about Kanye West and his latest girlfriend. The reason he supposed they broke up with her because she goes goblin mode. They're like, okay, that's a new one I'd never heard of before. Goblin mode refers to a person who was generally messy, likely unshowered and acting kind of feral, like a feral cat due to laziness or aversion to going outside. You find it in the urban dictionary you find it in tumblr. It's been around for years, but not something that ever heard before. Of course I chuckled, because there are a lot of words these days in the urban dictionary. A lot of different types of slang that you just don't hear. Most of them created through memes. Somebody just creates a word and it kind of goes viral. And we'll see more and more of that as the world starts separating into its own little tribes. And a lot of people are studying these words. Goblin mode, I'll admit. It's pretty much what I am right now.

"So these are a few examples. On the left I have basically a functional team roster, the people I worked with the most frequently. In fact, I printed it out and I still have it by my desk in this card form because I still use this today. It helps me just structure my interactions, know who I'm working with. What am I running with? In the middle here, is from my note tracker. I started to use buckets as labels. Rather than memorizing every detail, I would put it into the bucket marketing or product or engineering. That way I knew where to go reference it when I got back to these conversations or when I needed to have a little bit more of a structured opinion on something. I could go back to my notes and start to craft that narrative. And this other is just a quick example of the team operating system. It's from a book called brave new work by the ready. Aaron diggin. But again, the basic idea is start to map out meetings or strategy, or is this a conversation about bug reports? So really started to structure my day a little bit more. This is an example from the tumblr team where we translate the apps and our web application into 18 languages. And I really wanted to know who is the team? What tools do they use? When do they ship? How do they deploy these translations? How do they localize? Again, another part of my system of just learning this product, learning this team. One technique I use, which is really basic is I just used writing things down. I use note cards and I started to map out by department or by function. What did I have to get involved in here? As you can see, you could sometimes be overwhelming. It's a lot of stuff. The next phase of this organization I started to put it into a whiteboard. I was just using mural here,.

"Who are the people I need to meet? What are the different roles and functions and teams are involved here? And how do I interact with them? I started to look at the knowledge base and I made my own glossary because I had a lot of questions. On tumblr, there was a lot of advertising and quite a bit of content moderation as a social platform that I wasn't familiar with. And so I went into it with a lot of learning to do. So this listening phase was important to start tracking all that. Not getting the answers, but starting to attract the questions. On the team side, we have this wonderful case of many people living in New York City. That's where the tumblr office used to be before automatic made the acquisition. About 6 or 8 months before I joined. And so I would have this visual up on my computer when I was having Zoom calls with my teammates to say, where do you live? And many people lived in Brooklyn. And so I'd say, oh, prospect heights, or dumbo, or Williamsburg. Help put them on the map, help me orient to this team. In a similar way, I started to say who are the people I work with the most frequently. And we had a lot of engineering teams. And so I made this mural, this white board, where I had these boxes for each team. I knew the team name, but I didn't know that people. So as I met people, I started to put their face. I would take their avatar, their image and I'd put it into this diagram. This basically like an ork chart. But I was building it myself, so I would have to learn each person. In the same way, I started using spreadsheets. And in this case, it's an example of functions and leadership roles. So I can start to see, what's the person's name? What's their title or department? And how does that map to my understanding? Because sometimes the jargon was different. So I was able to put this into a structured format that I could reference every day or every time I was going to jump into a new conversation to know. What do they do again? And be informed and ready for that conversation. As I shifted to the second round of conversations, I stayed open and started to reference those maps in those notes. And I started to develop a habit of daily review. So I'd start my day with bookmarks and my browser that had the KPI dashboards or the product tracker or the latest update from the teams. Just to see an orient. And maybe start that day with a fresh intention of what did I need to pay attention to today? That was one of the habits I developed right away was how do I make sure that I get everything out of my head and into these mappings. So I didn't have to memorize it, but I knew how to reference it.

"Anthony mackie fantastic. And so this is quite literally the the kind of starting point behind the august. Six strikes In so i was really curious having kind of come to the strike late if these concerns were actually valid because at first blush reading them my immediate was. Oh yeah you aren't really supposed to be able to make money off of derivative works. And that's a huge kind of sticking point in copyright law but the thing about digital copyright law and fair use is that so much of this is being written as we speak because the internet moves so fast that most court cases haven't actually caught up so where we are and also a loved hamburg but they also tend to dramatize shit and none of them have legal degree. I was just like. I really wanna see going on here so i reached out to several lawyers. I i reached out to alexander j roberts professor trademark entertainment law at the university of new hampshire. She told me this is mostly a copyright issues so. I can't really help you much. But from a trademark perspective. It doesn't actually seem like it would cause that much trouble. Heidi howard tandy intellectual property lawyer at burger syngman. Said and i quote the only succinct. Answer to a question like this is it. Depends she says undercurrent copyright case law. It seems unlikely that a user could be sued for creating gifts irfan works that are freely shared even others how subscriptions or other fees attached to assist their fan works so basically saying post plus doesn't really seem to open up any more legal liability then your opened up by creating the fan work in general christel. Iaea garcia says the post plus feature introduced by. Tumbler has absolutely no impact whatsoever on whether fan will be dinged for copyright infringement. This is a misinterpretation of the law. That appears to have spread among craters as misinformation tends to do nothing to see here folks. Nice which like so far so good. It really seems like this over hyped right but to otherwise i spoke to set something just a little bit. Different jessica syllabi. Who's a law professor at boston. University said fan fiction and fan work is kind of always risky in terms of copyright liability. And the question basically comes down to whether it's fair use which is really what this entire argument is built on. She said this new platform arguably hurts the fan at crater in the fair use calculation but commercial uses not fatal for fair. Use the last laura. I spoke to is. can't they. Wind smith law professor at the university of montana who basically said if the unauthorized use of a piece of intellectual property was commercial that factor can weigh against fair use it does not automatically mean the unauthorized work is not fair use. But it's usually an easy argument to make. If the unauthorized use is not commercial. non for profit. She said she's pretty sure. Copyright owners are already aware of. What's happening on tumbler. In copyright owners can choose not to enforce copyright for any reason but should craters start in mass begin. Monetize and fan works. That are derived from copyrighted. Works it could attract the attention of copyright owners and potentially encourage them to more aggressively police and protect unauthorized derivatives or we productions of their copyrighted works in so she makes a good point which is even if a timber crater has a good argument for fair use. It's easier and cheaper for them not to go against the large corporation so they don't even have to sue small craters they can just requests them. The take down and the average person is going to look at the amount of resources like disney and not want to go against them in court. Yeah you're not going to be like well. I could either not go to court with disney or it could go to court with disney. I'm gonna go to court. You really have to want to go to court. You not just take it down right so in. Some really does seem like a lot of the backlash or post. Plus is somewhat over hyped if you are one of those people who thinks oh. Tom bliss anti-working class like that post. Then just don't sign up for it like it doesn't seem like the tumbler. Ecosystem supports us very well. Also post plus does seem kind of dumb but it is also like all the fury about it. the backlash is a little bit overdramatize. I mean yeah. There's this really actually interesting. Generational divide in the response to pose. Plus isn't that there are people like us are on the oversight. Wanna fucking vomit. Yeah and then there's the kind of seemingly younger folks who organized the august six strike and on the older side are people. Basically saying things like actually. Tumbler should pay for sticking around this long. Which is hilarious and objectively true s. Or this post from clips so limit. Which i think kind of perfectly sums up the divide. They say in quotes. Stop post plus from happening. Fill out the survey science petition. Do a log out protests. And then they go on listen. I've been here twenty eleven. That's now how anything on those website works. We're we're not you do these things post post. Stay make little to no money for the website because nobody uses it except self-important funny man bloggers and instagram influence our one abuse and slowly degrade lack of maintenance from an underpaid staff bring complete obsolescence. Let nature run her. Course the smartest take on this honestly know exactly. I mean again. I felt like a little old lady sitting on the porch laughing. The kids these days. Because i was just like if no one uses post it's gonna disappear and humbler is not going to maintain this weird feature that no one seems to fucking one right so organizing a strike over it which i find again. Endearing like collective power the union. But it's also just like. I've been around the block enough times. It staff is introduced weird features that everyone hated and then immediately just disappeared yet and so it's like again late. Let let nature run her core right but you know if disney does send you a take down notice because you put their copyrighted gifts that behind a paywall hit me up. I'm not gonna pay your legal fees.

"I'M GONNA, try to give an explanation of what Cunanan is and then I want you to correct me. Okay. So in on at heart. Even though it seems like if you get to Cunanan supporters in the same room, they're like economists to different descriptions of what the beliefs are. But at heart, this is about a ball, a deep state conspiracy. Of Child Trafficking and pedophilia. Hidden in tunnels. Yeah, yeah for the most part. You said, there's like a bunch of nuance disagreement even within that I've talked to Q. Nonbelievers who don't even believe that which seemingly is a quartet of it but then I've talked to some who that's only the tip of the iceberg and they believe all sorts of bizarre things that go way beyond that. How often do you talk to a Cunanan supporter and find that they? have very different views from say that the Cunanan Forums Online? They're really easy to find it trump rallies, and so I, went to a couple to report out a story that was doing on like what in real life Cunanan, supporters actually believe and yeah, there was there was a contingent of people who believed to a t and they were explaining to me like these extreme theories that like even I who spend a lot of time in these spaces just like I heard before. But then there were other guys who were wearing full Cunanan shirts who had like signs, and then you go up and talk to them and. They would just be like I. Don't I don't know about these pedophile rains underground tunnels, bump I do know that. Trump. Is a good guy and that he's t stopping corruption. So back in March recorded this explainer video. And you ended by saying that q becoming a mainstay and also fading from relevance. Months. Later, do you still see it that way? No no I don't. That was a really interesting period in Q. and I. IT looked like it was in stasis twitter mentions for we're down its main platform eight had been taken down. But I think that pretty much as soon as the coronavirus lockdown started, it came back in full force. If you look at things like Google trends but Kapiti page views mentions of like given unrelated terms on twitter and facebook groups pretty much around March thirteenth to sixteenth when the lockdowns kind of hit the United States There's this massive explosion of interest in Q. Online that really hasn't subsided since the coronavirus started. To what do you attribute the the change in the popularity of Cunanan A lot of people are saying it's because of the pandemic and people are sitting at home and spending too much time on their computers. What do you make of that theory? I think that that does. Explain. Some parts of it pretty well. Internet traffic is way up people were spending a lot of time on platforms where they can be exposed and led down different Hyun on rabbit holes people more atomised, never been because they're stuck in their homes and they feel alienated. But I also think to Cunanan has a bunch of different appealing points to it to different types of people that explain the current political moment for them really well. It also makes q a non a very diverse crowd. I mean, you've got successful people a African American like Isaiah Washington who has his own show on Fox Cunanan supporter correct. Yes, that's that's one of the new scarier developments is that. This was pretty isolated. I started like an extreme online, right. Then it sort of blossomed out through facebook and then youtube to sort of baby boomers sat who are less tack wetter and more prone to these things. But yeah now you have people like Isaiah Washington. Even online. You can see that it's catching steam in all these different areas like wellness ANTIBAC- people are getting really into it hippie new age people are getting are getting really into it. It's bringing in more and more people to the fold every day, and that's really concerning there are a number of not only organizations but experts who study this very thing conspiracy theories and extremism. You refer in your reporting to some of a Mike One researcher at Concordia University. Who says that the membership in Cunanan has gone from two hundred just over two hundred, thousand members in March two. Almost one and a half million as of last month But you also spoke with people who who think this is being overblown and I I wanna read back a quote from your reporting a political science Professor University of Miami who says quote I'm reading headlines from reporters on the tech beat that well are well intentioned aren't tethered to reality. What is your response to this idea that that this is just being? Blown out of proportion. I don't I don't want to like overstayed the sort of anecdotal evidence that we can look to like I don't want to say that that overrides data but like there's just so many things that are showing that. Cunanan, clearly, having uptick in even if that uptick is not that large and it is like pretty close to the polling results, it's still showing more than it has more and more power and more and more impact. They're getting elected to Congress in small numbers. They're going out and committing acts of violence they're influencing political discourse there harassing people like. I talked to a lawmaker California who's trying to introduce a pro lgbtq legislation. He got accused of being a pedophile. He is absolutely harassed like his family members of drug into the mix I, mean, try telling him that it's just a small movement lake it. This guy's life was like Tumblr for days after this, and this is why you've said that we kind of need to separate the size of this group from the damage that it causes. Right? Yeah I I think that both are important but like the real world impact that this happening more and more and more any influence on not explicitly Cunanan non-related spaces the Cunanan followers are having the potential impact on the Republican Party and Conservatives. It's like something that people are going to have to deal with that shouldn't be underestimated at all. Cunanan's jump from Internet conspiracy theory to real world threat happened quickly last year a follower of the conspiracy shot and killed. In New, York mob boss on Staten Island. His Defense Cunanan had led him to believe his victim was part of the deep state. In May the FBI labeled Q. On and conspiracies like it domestic terrorism threats. The fight against Q. might become more complicated as Cunanan supporters win political offices in August a Cunanan fan named Marjorie Taylor Green became the Republican nominee for Georgia's fourteenth congressional district.

She's really in relationship with common. Well, now she's sitting the record straight and some people are surprise on Steve O's Wild Rod podcast. She says that this is hands down the best relationships has ever been in. This I feel more confident in me not in. It's not him. That's doing it but it's Stable yeah. Way Happier in. It's like knowing that I got somebody that. Cares about me really has my back. Like. It seems like he does anyways I love I love you know. What are you guys think? Were they smart not to re eleven a relationship to now do you think it's a smart? I think something happened last night. She got it real good. It was a great night and she was in her feelings. I. Think it smart for Tiffany. Haddish to let this I think for her you know she finally found somebody who understands her who gets her and I think a lot of time. Don't realize you know this woman grew up in foster care. A lot of people that I know that grew up in foster care have abandonment issues. They don't let people in very easily. So that's why we haven't seen Tiffany haddish in these celebrity relationships after celebrity relationships. So now she founded you'd like common who goes deep with her who she feels comfortable with who empowers her, and she's like how I'm ready to let you guys know this dude is here and I'm writing with him and I think it's great. I think it's great to I think it's important especially for relationships that are like in Hollywood and are in the public eye I think keep it a secret a little bit I think that's why she kept it a little closer to the vest can just by saying that how much I love Tiffany Haddish. His bald head I didn't think I'd love it this much. But not her in common together it's like two EMINEM's being. What I love that she's like in love she's talking about she's out forward about it. After being asked one hundred times is you're gonNA have a baby if you're going to do this, do that with now that she's in something real and I think it's legit and I think and I wish nothing but. What am is me she said she lost twenty pounds and I think he'd lose about one hundred calories every time you sleep with someone side is. supposed. TO BE GAINING WEIGHT Is the time where people are eating lounging around. On the. Relationship Vic, she is working hard with Komen now cash wondering they did not make on Tumblr they met on a movie set and in the beginning, they seem to be joking around about relationship. Do you guys think this was part of this strategy die when they wanted to keep it private they may challenge the spot was there they moved in but like we just we just can't come out and be public about this. I think when you get to a certain age, you're not throwing every relationship up on instagram but we live in a world where people meet big on dates they get a coffee and they meet dogs three days later and all of a sudden we know their interrelationship these people are over forty. They're not playing this a love game like everyone else. Victim. Also say that we can. We stop letting social media validate relationships like just don't put your relationship online or social media on twitter doesn't mean you're not with the person anymore I. Remember every time I like post Rubio, post like her toe and the photo people like thank God you guys are still together. I got worried I'm like. Are you serious because you see her? Also. Keeps all the single people out there. That are actively searching right now because a lot of people have come out in a very lonely at the moment out of Oscillation Quarantine and I need to know who's available if you don't put in Karachi's talk, how do they night? Know but by the way when you're when you're not available is when they come. So that's why I always tell people don't Poche your man on. INSTAGRAM. Don't be nobody to your happiness because they only want you when you went somebody and that's the true nobody was victor until he got CARUCCI.

yesterday reporting on this in the Washington post Jack Russell with me on the cone is I hate Jake Hey are you doing very well thank you this A. league of course try to control two thousand one and failed after one season they try to reach such a tape that league this year and under the same guidance of Vince McMahon and the looks like due to some circumstances out of their control this may be a second failed attempt yeah that's the way it appeared unfortunately and the sad part is they try to do it right this time around they were thinking about about the football itself and not trying to track the NFL like they did the first time around and not try to be so different they were trying to be anybody else but themselves and they had a lot of good things going for them unfortunately it seems you know you know when you're starting an upstart football league I could predict the pandemic so about half his season and then you're gonna have to be a jump and then eventually call for bankruptcy sadly that's where they are now obviously other leagues are waiting and seeing with regard to when they might resume of the XFL filing for bankruptcy it was it just because they were so it's such tedious the Scituate was such a tedious situation financially go they just can withstand this yet in the bankruptcy filing it said that the the week canceling the final five regular season games lost them twenty seven million dollars and game day related purchase for fans I think it's a it's a big number the whole the whole time we were led to believe that the leak was going to be financed for three years no matter what I guess the no matter what part did include a pandemic but right now it doesn't seem like it's gonna be a scary thing the only vital hope that they have is someone actually it actually I believe it's under for for sale now and I think the hope is for fans of the access out there that someone will buy the week by the name by the teams and just hold onto it until there's actually a viable time to start this spring spring football again and we have a vaccine for the coronavirus that we can guarantee the safety of the fans and the participants for every game going forward Jack Russell with the Washington post with now the XFL as you write owns all of the team so there won't be a push for the Seattle Reagan's for instance to join Canadian Football League another league hope means you much of the sale the entirely that's that's what they're hoping for what about the players are they stuck in these contracts or can they sign with other teams I know the league made them available to the NFL and CFL on March twenty third and so far XFL news hub dot com has actually done a really good job of chronicling who's made a jump to the NFL and the coupon I believe eighteen players have made the league the NFL so far in the Steelers have been heavily invested in that the fields of scientific players so far I'm not sure whether eating a lower high number but to me it seems like it's kind of low based on the the quality of play that the weekend this year I think it's there's a lot of talent that could fit on the bottom end of NFL rosters throughout the league hopefully as the months go go for that we'll see some more big name players necklace all make believe thanks again good reporting Jack Russell washingtonpost dot com XFL files

"Tumblr about long blogs so many years ago thanks for being here all I eat I stepped in a little bit of do this weekend not not a full not a full pilot do do justice the what happens will happen I you I don't know why I do this to myself I was having a perfectly good Saturday and I decided to wait in into the re client gate story so I think you're not totally usable easy as I was doing that over the weekend snow I don't know why I did this in again lex even when you weren't here I would reference you any time I would engage in social media I would I I would hear you I would hear you in my head you're floating head around me going but I do anyway so Friday actually kind of glad that you do because then we get to talk about it like that we could be of three hours every day right dog three hours right so if you guys don't know when everybody knows now it's the big debatable saying it's the story of the woman on the American Airlines flight reclined her seat she was in the penultimate role she reclined her seat the dude behind there it was in the last row so he was unable to recline she started her charges yeah because she started recording him because he was systematic like like he was just punching punching the seat like a like a a sewing machine and then the flight attendant gave her like a citation okay you guys know the story yep so on Friday the news came out this the CEO of delta I got into this debate and he said that we asked passengers should ask a lot of common courtesy that we should actually ask permission tool to recline oh no now I have to say I wasn't gonna join into this because again my life was going pretty good pretty okay on on this date okay so I sat so I said I I took that story from TMZ and I said what I said how about you either taking away the button if you don't want people doing it or delta or all the airlines give folks more legroom so this isn't a problem to recline in the first place so are you willing to pay more for your ticket for that if they take a row out hello don't even say that be their rationale though guys yeah you read don't even they don't even have I mean just give us a little bit more or take the but in a way because my my big point is this and then I got a C. then I got in this fight with this millennial because yeah she's a millennial and I'm not taking a millennials but I went to her profile and she kept throwing out the word entitle maintained well this is this is coming from you a very entitled person like this entitlement is not the point when you're paying for the ticket because my overall point is if you are paying for a backseat in with him back ticket within the thing you are paying for there is a button to use I don't know why this is debate you should be able to use it I have paid for that seat and everything that comes with it right the crappy magazine in the little fan above ya I have paid for that but and if you don't want us to use it don't put it in there it's not about entitlement when you're paying for it and number two this whole thing about forcing the customer to ask permission that in this day and age now if this was an argument in the eighties or nineties would be different but in this day and age where everybody has a short fuse everybody you are putting the gas in a position where they are risking a confrontation well first into that you ask if you're sitting there and you don't want that to happen to you say no of course you're gonna say go reclines sure if you don't want them to there is a risk though with people nowadays the people are not Butters yeah that's true too you do not want customer that's not my job I'm not paying to facilitate no what because you're your own issue I always thought that that's just part of it the person in front of you may recall I mean that's their right I think the big story is that he was just being a and an a hole the guy in the back so yeah but blacks armed I was shocked people feel very strongly on the other side that is what it because this but people are calling me out that I was being hypocritical because I always talk about people being socially aware yeah I stand by that but there's a big difference someone using example of how I always complain about our models at Disney world can I get a non men don McLean walk more families walking a horizontal line and block the entire walkway at the busiest place on earth yes I always preach peace and be socially aware but there's a big I am aware because the truth of the matter is I actually don't read quite a lot because I do like to be courteous to the person behind me my point is we should not be required to engage with with the person behind you get an invitation it's an invitation for confrontation in this day and age don what do you think well I think that I am super annoyed when someone reclines their seat in front of me twenty two like I just deal with it there's nothing but at the same time I would never say just like a Lexus that I would never say I would prefer not but I would be I'm going to get that in my back pocket in my wheel house just to have ready to go out of my mouth I would prefer not really yeah I never really find my seat I never do because I feel way too guilty for the person behind me I love that perspective yeah I recline if I feel like it yeah that's fine that's part of flying well it's just such a small amount to you when you were crying like that the amount of relief that you get from reclining is so minimal but the bone hate that but the what you have to pay for the person behind me what they have to pay the price of for my two inches of reclining is pretty steep so I'm like that to them but you know I'm not trying to be holier than though I just don't feel right about it I don't feel right about reclining my seat so don you represent a lot of people that that connected me that contact me on Twitter you you are representative Kenny what do you think hopefully I can come from this at a little different angle this help in the what we used to call the smokers section right yeah right yep yeah back to the okay here's my perspective are you people showed up back then my yeah boy commoners fighting no concern to me I just need them to shut up and he well I enjoy champagne in this movie little people need to appear in first class steerage Katie referred to call them yeah okay let's pretend you're in steerage and you want to recline doing I usually don't recline no no okay because out of courtesy or you just and I think asking and I'm I'm not down with asking because what's going to happen is people are gonna shut you down yeah yeah but you know like Jason says there's a social contract here don't be a douche well yeah I mean this guy would she videoed and he just hit somebody and punching it sounds like they were both plus so if he's on the last of the toilet yeah and he's in the last row she's in the second to last row so he can't recline no so he's got head in his lap so to speak yeah yeah that's true like it again all right I don't often I do not I do not recline I'm I'm kind of in the middle of lex and dawn I don't often recline just the whole you should ask permission that rubs me the wrong way because again this is where I'm more lax I paid for that C. girl I paid for that seat and you paid for years and there is a button to my right if you don't want me to do it the airline should take it away that's that's my point yeah but yeah then I got off Twitter and started drinking heavily we're gonna take a break we'll keep looking titles don good tells Elton John I had a good weekend but Elton John did not hear about that when we return I talk on a seven one everything he's gotta keep Livin man L.

Camila Cabello apologizes for racist Tumblr posts from 2012

"Two days ago a twitter user at motivate fendi posted a string of tweets calling Camila Cabello out for allegedly posting racist content on a tumbler. Ambler Account Oh no. They didn't summed up the tweet. Thread saying quote motivate fantasy. Found Camilo. Cabezas tumbler page one. Camilla confirmed was hers receipts in the thread and started a thread last night. That includes a million anti-black re blogs xenophobic re blogs referring to the Asian language as Ching Tong Language and going for the hat trick a re blog. Making light of Rana's assault at the hands of Chris Brown and quote. I personally looked through the entire thread and let me just say. I don't know if I've ever seen so many racist memes in one place. It was like reading a toxic four Chan threat or something. The meme that Camille allegedly reposted making fun of Chris. Brown beating Riana is especially vile at motivate. fendi updated the tweet thread adding at the end quote up date. It appears that community deleted Vu attests bell. Luckily I archive all the links in this thread on the way back machine last night. Eight and quote wvu attests bell. I don't know if I'm saying that right. But I guess that was the name of cumulous Account Camilla logged onto twitter last night and while she didn't confirmed the tumbler posts were hers. She did apologize for her past comments in a lengthy apology in the form of a screen shotted image of text now. Technically CABELA's apology wasn't on the IPHONE. Notes APP she clearly road it in like an instagram story but the spirit of the notes up is alive. Live in this apology. So I'm still going to award it with the coveted notes APP apology of the week. Notes APP apology of what we how in a screen shotted image that included a black background with white currier text Camilla road quote when I was younger I used language that I'm deeply ashamed of of and will regret forever. I was uneducated and ignorant and once I became aware of the history and the weight and the true meaning behind this horrible and hurtful language I was deeply the embarrassed I ever used it. I apologize then and I apologize now I would never intentionally hurt anyone and I regret it from the bottom of my heart as much as I wish I could. I can't can't go back in time and change things I said in the past but once you know better you do better and that's all I can do. I'm twenty two now. I'm an adult and I've grown and learned I am conscious and aware of the history and the paint. It carries in a way that I wasn't before those mistakes don't represent the person I am or a prison I've ever been. I only stand Dan and have ever stood for love and inclusivity and my heart has never even then had any chance of hate divisiveness. The truth is I was embarrassingly. Ignorant Unaware I use my platform to speak out about injustice and inequality. And I'll continue doing that. I can't say enough how deeply sorry and ashamed. I feel and I apologize. Today's again from the bottom of my heart and quote even after posting this apology. It still seems like people are pretty upset by Camilla's former posts. A lot of people are saying that regardless of how much she regrets it by age sixteen. You should know that riposting racist content and using the N.. Word Ad Nauseam is unacceptable acceptable.
