"Out of chaos springs forth order and disorder, reliant on each other, all three connected and perpetually intertwined for all time."
If she ever tries using that Ouija board in the apartment I’mma knock her the fuck out. I have had experiences with legit Ouija boards. I do not want to have more experiences with them ever again. I do a lot of stuff actively avoiding such experiences, in fact.
Zuckerberg must have skipped that class where Jung and Goffman were discussed. Individuals are constantly managing and restricting flows of information based on the context they are in, switching between identities and persona. I present myself differently when I’m lecturing in the classroom compared to when I’m have a beer with friends. I might present a slightly different identity when I’m at a church meeting compared to when I’m at a football game. This is how we navigate the multiple and increasingly complex spheres of our lives. It is not that you pretend to be someone that you are not; rather, you turn the volume up on some aspects of your identity, and tone down others, all based on the particular context you find yourself.
[…]But, it seems Zuckerberg does not want people to be able to manage who gets to see what about them. He subscribes to the repeated corporate philosophy that if you don’t want something viewable by everyone, then just don’t share it. All or nothing. One identity is all you have, all you deserve.
[…]Mark: I can deal with the fact that we have completely different philosophies of information, privacy, and now, identity. But once you start questioning people’s integrity for simply wanting to manage their identities online, that’s crossing a line.
It’s been going on for a long time, and it’s not just that blog. A lot of people repost without getting permission and the list goes on and on about why that’s a really messed up thing to do. People who reblog reposted art are a part of the problem as well, because they’re reinforcing the idea that it’s okay to repost without permission, and they’re spreading the work. And no, adding a source doesn’t get you off the hook. I singled out alternative pokemon art because they have a wider audience and their reposts generally generate a lot of notes—at artists’ expense.
if you can reblog that post, I highly encourage you to!
Here’s another post on the issue. although it’s shorter it’s still relevant.
