You mean the game jam where they wanted you to work for free and own your work?

She tweeted a few times about it openly and had a few twitter discussions with people about it. Plus she was speaking from a good professional point of view.

Fuck you pay me.

We don't know that Zoe Quinn doxxed her self. I'd love to see some really good hard evidence to this fact.

I'm logged into tumblr right now on three computers(not to mention the mobile app on an iPad and an iPhone); so saying that you can't be logged in multiple computers and multiple IPs is not evidence.

Nor is the fact that the data that was dumped was wrong. That doesn't prove she doxxed herself either. It just means the dox were wrong.

She has 114 thousand followers on twitter, 150k subscribers on YouTube and whenever she puts out a video it gets picked up by Kotaku, Polygon/Verge, Destructoid, etc.

Publicity stunt? Not fucking likely.

After Elliott Rodger, even if it's a freak occurrence, one would hate to be the exception to that rule given that life is on the line.

"We have to let go of this notion that for Apple to win, Microsoft has to lose."

This is more universally true than a lot of people are willing to let on.

Can IBM Power 8 actually take on x86? Or has that ship already sailed?

They don't need to take on Intel and x86. They just need to make a profit on each system sold.

I seriously don't understand why the tech common wisdom doesn't understand this very basic concept of business logic.

They're not mutually exclusive. Sexual harassment, sexual identity and all sorts of other issues related to sex and body integrity also exist.

So, yes, rape culture extends from a culture of overall but declining violence and but also restrictive and repressive cultural norms around sex.

Because the FCC has done such a FABULOUS job regulating teh airwaves, we just HAVE to get them involved in the Internet!

Actually, yes. The FCC has done a great job with the airwaves. If you can get radio or tv signals to your home, thank the FCC.

The censorship part, not so much.

1 in 5 women will get sexually assaulted in her life time.

1 in 5 homes will not get burglarized in their entire existence.

No one* is teaching boys it's ok to harass and rape. Just like no one says "you didn't lock your doors enough" when a house is burgled.

Blurred Lines hit #1 on the pop charts. The repeated stories about guys who get away with rape even after it's been reported and there's solid evidence for it. Guys like MMA star War Machine(God help me, that's his legal name) telling people that his ex-GF is his property.

There's all sorts of cultural influences telling men that they're entitled to women's bodies. In essence, we're teaching our children that rape is OK. It's called Rape Culture.

Here's Rape Culture 101

And yes, there's all sorts of antisemitic influences in our culture. Including saying someone "Jewed" you out of money. But that's another rant.

If burglary and child abduction are as common as rape, we would be having a MUCH DIFFERENT conversation.

But it's not.

Rape is really common.

And it happens to people who have taken all the precautions in the world. Telling someone to mitigate the risks while looking at all possible ways for things to go wrong and then saying, "You didn't mitigate risks enough!" is ridiculous.

Stop teaching boys it's ok to harass, rape or feel entitled to women's (and men's) bodies. No, persistence isn't going to pay off. It's just creepy.

Think of your family tonight. Try to crawl home after the computer crashes.
