I'm very excited to finally be re-entering society post (mid?) Big Tech employment apocalypse.
This is my first public speaking event since & I'm thrilled to get to speak with Thrive-wise about how to navigate the world of Big Tech as a woman. 💃💻
I hope to see you there!

My latest from Big Tech Politics:
"A Blatant and Aggressive Disregard for the Law": Apple's tumultuous relationship with the U.S. SEC & U.S. Department of Justice
I'm very excited to announce my first post-Apple job!
I'll still be working on Apple-related things: but now as a human rights researcher with GreatFire, reporting on Apple's global human rights violations & encouraging Apple to reform it's problematic behavior.
I'm joining the AppleCenorship project to work on two investigations into Apple's involvement in and facilitation of app censorship, suppression of human rights (religion & sexuality apps, etc.) and blocking access to information (news apps, etc.) in Russia and Hong Kong.
If you have data about censorship & restricted access to information in Russia & Hong Kong, I'd love to hear your thoughts and/or experiences!
You can reach me at: email@example.com
@aral Thank you!!! I'm more than ready for the age of Small Tech. Thank you for all that you do, Aral!

📰 My latest Big Tech Politics article's now out & is sadly dedicated solely to government corruption related to my Apple cases
"Field Notes on Regulatory Capture:
Welcome to my personal hellscape of conflicts of interest, obstruction, & denials of due process"
As someone who had the misfortune of spending years in toxic work environments, I always hated the idea of "lean in." The message instructs victims of patriarchy and white supremacy that their outcome will be more favorable if they acquiesce and expose themselves to even more risk of mistreatment, rather than empowering them to stand up for their rights and demand equal treatment. I'd rather be shown the the water is now safe, instead of being told to jump in with the sharks.
