I unfortunately missed Danah Boyd’s Saturday Keynote on Saturday, but above is an excerpted video. Danah has posted the notes/essay of the keynote: “Making Sense of Privacy and Publicity” at her website.
Watch and read it, provocative and thoughtful as always.
The above is what happens when Molly asks you to be a prop in a session when you have not had any caffeine… Actually, I was more than happy to participate, as I love to help out Molly, to be amusing, and keep Austin weird. It was fun to be a browser and I loved Bruce in a sparkly shirt!
Owls Wings on Happy Teutates’ Day! : “St. Patrick is said to have driven all the snakes out of Ireland. According to Waverly FitzGerald, snakes probably represented the old oracle cults tended by snake priestesses. They were also sacred as symbols, not of evil, but of the renewal of life, and miraculous regeneration as they shed their skins. Scholars speculate that this story about the snakes was symbolic of Patrick’s orchestrating the ascendance of Christianity over the old Druidic order.”
Last night, I saw a bunch of purple irises peeking out of a man’s shopping bag, and my heart was pierced.
While I wish I was not single, in my day to day life I have become, in defense, somewhat immune – until the small moments, the little things observed. The little unconditional things that a man can do for a woman, then I come undone.
Looking at those irises, I sincerely hoped whoever received them, did so with joy. Later in the evening, I found myself crying. Trying not to, but I was.
