mboya\rogers can you hear me law
..the impregnable, hermetic way class and power work in America. In private rooms, around tables full of expensive food, middle-aged white men agree to help each other out.

My friend and student Arwa Mboya (@RuMboya) published a strong, brave and smart piece in The Tech today demanding that Joi Ito resign: https://t.co/Hm0TSx1jJK

what we need is tech imaginative enough (arwa’s focus tech/imagination) to listen to every voice everyday.. in spaces where people have nothing to prove.. a place they can truly express/hear themselves.. that’s the only way we’ll get to global fittingness
ie: tech as it could be..
a means to undo our hierarchical listening

Want to talk to me about why (and how!) you believe in free expression? Hit me up, would love to interview you. (http://twitter.com/jilliancyork/status/1167405595810566144?s=17)
it’s not free expression just because ie: you can hear me; i get to choose between a finite set of choices; i feel freer than i was; ..
Because the complicity goes all the way up, these problems require people with great power to fix them.
Joi Ito has the humility to understand that change is imperative…t
