The demonization of either rapists or victims is what makes the subject unapproachable, and doesn’t let anyone intercede to get abusive people the help they need, much less the victims.
bits from fb convo – api
Dave: If you have a purpose that you care about, why would you not want to join a purpose-driven social network? [..] I don’t need people to join a social network at all. I just need a standard api that I can use to access people through a purpose lens. It’s a sales channel and a support channel that I’m trying to open.
Robert Scoble: LeRoy yeah there is that, too. Most people have no idea what an API is. And I know what it is but it has nothing to do with being human. Is a way for software to talk to other software.
