Emine is erg slim en dit moet dus een van de sterkere argumenten voor het dragen van een hoofddoek zijn. Ik vind het niet bijzonder overtuigend maar dat terzijde.

Het gedoe waar ze probeerden mee te profiteren van de Toeslagenaffaire en ook nog eens dit lekker anti-woke doen om het doen. Het lijkt erop dat de Correspondent wat altijd al lastig was en beetje de weg kwijt is.
Een mooi en erg herkenbaar kerstverhaal van Rasit Elibol.
It’s nice that these startups guys take a public schooling so well. It would be nice if we could see more of that on Clubhouse instead of the endless rows of bad panels.
When I still did photography, I read everything I could find about how cameras work and this is the mental model I built up back then.
The lovely thing about this webpage is that it makes each of the mechanics interactive so you can play with them and see what happens.

Er valt heel veel te zeggen over de Toeslagen-affaire.
Hier bijvoorbeeld hoe de ratten in de cie Financien de waarheidsvinding opzettelijk geblokkeerd hebben.
> Perhaps this was one of those things which would have been better off left to legal professionals, rather than being put to trial-by-Clubhouse.
> both peddling books which really should have been tweets
> While both women make passing references to social movements, neither are particularly interested in the terrain of collective struggle.
> reparations isn’t an individual white person giving money to an individual Black or brown person (apart from when I personally am broke and want a cocktail, in which case it’s very much that)
> Rather it has intensified their consumption of political content – particularly material which equates white guilt with anti-racist solidarity.> The influencers have invented intersectional Thatcherism.
Zinger after zinger in this important piece by Ash Sarkar where she rightfully asks what white people can do in the anti-racist struggle other than watch White Fragility and feel bad about themselves.
“This is all to say that Paul Graham is an effective marketer and practitioner, but a profoundly unserious public intellectual. His attempts to grapple with the major issues of the present, especially as they intersect with his personal legacy, are so mired in intuition and incuriosity that they’re at best a distraction, and worst a real obstacle to understanding our paths forward.”
An utter and total indictment of Paul Graham who of course is impervious to such things.
I’m just thinking of moving away from Chrome but for somebody who’s as heavy a tab user as I am, this looks useful and also scarily confronting.
