Chris Offutt: Trash Food
Chris Offutt: Trash Food
Economic status dictates class and diet. We arrange food in a hierarchy based on who originally ate it until we reach mullet, gar, possum, and squirrel—the diet of the poor. The food is called trash, and then the people are.

Alyssa Rosenberg: ‘Game of Thrones’ has always been a show about rape
Alyssa Rosenberg: ‘Game of Thrones’ has always been a show about rape
If reading this litany has been exhausting, it’s testament to just how well “Game of Thrones” has done at leavening this grimness with humor, tenderness and moments of real human connection. But it also ought to suggest how odd it is to accuse the showrunners of adding a sexual assault to somehow up the stakes when, dragons aside, intimate violence is already at the core of so many of the series’ storylines. There’s no requirement that anyone like any of these storylines or that anyone who feels exhausted from spending his or her days in a world marked by sexual violence retreat to a worse one for pleasure. But that’s not the same thing as proof that “Game of Thrones” is generally careless in its depiction of sexual assault or that rape doesn’t serve a purpose on the show. Sansa Stark isn’t ruined, as a character or as a person, because she was raped. She lives, and her story continues, even if you’re not tuning in to watch

Maria Bustillos: The Startling Humanism of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’
Maria Bustillos: The Startling Humanism of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’
In Max, we may read modern men in general, who were taught to fight and die and bleed for everyone else, uncomplainingly and alone, who were taught that women were weak, dependents to be “cherished” and protected—not equals who could fend for ourselves or fight side-by-side with them. But at some point in the late twentieth century, men somehow learned a different way of thinking about all that. What Miller is really doing is teaching men, not only women, how to rise above the patriarchy.

Mat Marquis: `text-rendering: optimizeLegibility` is Decadent and Depraved
Mat Marquis: `text-rendering: optimizeLegibility` is Decadent and Depraved
TL;DR: Using `text-rendering: optimizeSpeed` can do a lot for performance. All this typographic power came with a cost: text-rendering: optimizeLegibility is slow—and by “slow,” I mean that it can bog down an entire page, from initial render time to repaints. More than that, though, it’s buggy: Android in particular has serious issues trying to render a page that uses optimizeLegibility heavily, especially the older versions that are still, sadly, very common today.

Lily Benson: How To Hit On Girls In The Club (Or Not)
I know dudes are reading this thinking I'm a hater, but I really do believe that consensual club flirting is a beautiful thing, and I partake all the time. Flirting should be fun—it's not an adversarial process unless you make it one. Don't treat us like bodyguards who are trying to keep you from having sex with us. We are us. So help us help you have a good time with us.

Rushing doesn’t improve things, it might even slow you down. Focusing on a few things and doing them well is worthwhile. Sharing what you learn—even while you’re still figuring things out—is even better.

Chris Granger: Coding is not the new literacy
Modeling system is. Imagine what we could learn if we had the ability to break anything down, to reach inside it, and see what that little bit there does. The more ways we find to represent systems such that we retain that ability, the more power we will have to understand complex things.

Eric Harvey: Text Messages: Song Lyrics as Music’s New Digital Battleground (Pitchfork)
In the same way that Twitter asking me "what’s happening?" compels me to fill that box with something, a non-annotated line on Genius just feels…empty, in need of being explained, in some way. It’s Frere-Jones’ job, in part, to come up with some way of adding value to music that doesn’t lend itself toward lyrical exegesis.

Frédérik Lesage: Review of ‘Alien Phenomenology, or What It's Like to Be a Thing’ by Ian Bogost (Culture Machine)
Frédérik Lesage: Review of ‘Alien Phenomenology, or What It's Like to Be a Thing’ by Ian Bogost (Culture Machine)
In an account of designing one of these litanizers for an OOO symposium website, Bogost writes how it inadvertently shocked a visitor to the site by randomly generating a sexist image of a scantily clad woman on the symposium’s main page. Bogost’s response to the visitor’s complaint was to modify the code for his litanizer so as to exclude these kinds of images. For me, this encounter and subsequent compromise is where carpentry becomes most interesting. If carpentry is about exploring how things playfully hang together, the point where this hanging breaks down or encounters resistance would seem to me to be of particular interest. Instead of recognising this disruption and attempting to develop a means through which carpentry can address this challenge, Bogost is happy to have the litanizer simply raise thorny questions ‘in a unique way’ and vents his frustration that resolving the complaint means compromising its flat ontology of objects.

Mandy Brown: No Legal Merit (A Working Library)
Mandy Brown: No Legal Merit (A Working Library)
The notion that every woman you may hire has some measurable risk associated with her—as if we’re all ticking discrimination lawsuit timebombs—is itself discrimination. The “risk,” if there even is any, isn’t located in the women a firm may or may not hire, but in the structure of their own organization. That is, the “risk” isn’t that a woman will call you out—it’s that you’re already committing acts of discrimination, consciously or otherwise, and just don’t know it.
