This interview with @shengokai on Mastodon and whiteness is essential reading on digital placemaking and equity

@rachelcoldicutt @shengokai I was struck with this line from the thoughtful and meaningful article, "We don’t get online to deal with the same kinds of things that we do offline."

Offline, I deal with elitism in academia every day...

I wasn't on Twitter, I joined Mastadon out of curiosity about open-source technology and about migration between digital communities.

I have not found Mastadon to be a friendly place. Too much status maintenance and exclusion.

@rachelcoldicutt @shengokai That is excellent. Thanks for sharing! And thanks for the food for thought…

Sign in to participate in the conversation is a Mastodon instance for people interested in thinking creatively and critically about technology, in the broadest sense. The only requirement is that you keep to the code of conduct! Note: we've paused new signups for a few days while we deal with the #twittermigration influx - please do request an invite, but be aware that for now functions more like a 'waiting list' than a knock on the door, until our numbers stabilise again :-)
