I hope folks will take this to heart. The trick, though, as @That_Kreigh pointed out, is moving beyond agreement and into action. My colleagues at @humcommons are working on some means of supporting that action! https://twitter.com/kfitz/status/1101182703838416896

Totally — we need private spaces that we can trust to be private. FB is not that space. Platforms we control, with accountability for privacy, would be an improvement on this. https://twitter.com/profwernimont/status/1101481646023475205

I don’t completely disagree — I’m all for the decentralized indieweb — but there is a key role for community discussion spaces, and especially spaces that the community can control.

The five women I dedicated #GenerousThinking to were the women of the 1998 Pomona College English department. They created the atmosphere that allowed me to become who I am today.
