This is inspired. (And I guess it's combination of friendly and adversarial compatibility, depending on which particular combination of services you connect.)

Need the perfect accessory to wear to your next impeachment party? How about a Richard Nixon Bolo tie! Made from recycled silver plated flatware, it is slightly tarnished and a little crooked - just like the man himself!

This notion that a senator was in genuine doubt about the need to call witnesses but now Bolton's book reveals something new that leads that senator to change their mind... it's ludicrous. They knew before & they know now; the book should change nothing.

The reason good books exist is some things can’t be summed up in a sentence. Or even a paragraph. Or even an entire blog post. blog.ninapaley.com/2020/01/24/

"I am a former advertising executive, so let me tell you that advertising imagery, which we all tend to think of as dumb and stupid, is very powerful and persuasive, especially in the kind of volume that I’ve mentioned. We don’t think about it much, but advertising is a process of projecting very powerful imagery over and over directly into your brain. Most people scoff at the notion that such images have power. We like to think our intelligence protects us. But advertising has nothing to do with intelligence, it is simpler than that. It is image implantation. Look, if I say Energizer Bunny, or Taco Bell Chihuahua, or. how about Geico Gecko? Did a picture of those little animals appear in your head? Did you know you were carrying them around? Can you unsee those images? My late partner in the advertising business, Howard Gossage, once said “there’s a dirty little secret about advertising that nobody understands, that once the images are in your head, they never go away.” They are yours forever. The image lives in your head and in your brain, and really becomes you, especially if you don’t make efforts to actively study what’s being said and figure out what you think about it. If it’s coming at you at the rate of 200 billion dollars per year, with the average person watching 4 ½ hours of television per day, getting hit with 30,000 commercials per year. Well. It explains a lot." --Jerry Mander

“People are replicating a system and bias they aren’t even aware of. Even well-intentioned male directors don’t realize how easy it is for cultural norms to pass on.”

Women fight uphill battles for character representation in films. But what if classic camera angles, blocking and lighting are also problematic? My new @Variety article on how the way we make movies frames how we perceive women in the real world.

Anyone want to live in Shenzhen to teach at an experimental international high school in Shenzhen, China? I've been talking with these folks for about a year now -- they have a definite focus on projects and learning (rather than tests). 2 teachers needed:
Innovation and Science Fiction:

I imagine we have more than a few freelancers on this site; California's recent law restricting employment is coming your way (NY has a proposed bill now) that may change everything. Here's some recent thoughts I had.

When I was elected to school board I was invited to b meetings of Kiwanis, lions, and two rotaries. They were fun. But I thought, "not yet. Not yet."
