My Week In Links (November, Week 3)

In a bid to manage my time/find and remember things I need better, I’m going to start doing a weekly roundup of links I’ve found interesting, divided into general links and links related to the biggest project I’m currently working on (currently The Novel). I know it’s a bit of a 1999 thing to do but it works better for me than favouriting/bookmarking things in a thousand different places…

  1. That last article (still reading it) is terrific – really, really struck by the truth of this:

    “Call outs are to blogging what Big Brother voting rounds are to reality TV: you have been found wanting and you are now expelled from the house. Because, of course, this is what is rarely mentioned, someone might be attempting to audition for your seat. Someone who thinks they are more righteous, better, more politically engaged than you.”

    The goal becomes “being the most correct in the eyes of the arbiters of internet social justice” instead of “being more socially just”.

    • Yes, exactly. And having friends from minority backgrounds for social justice brownie points or for the purposes of your education, instead of having friends because you like them.

      • And tweeting all morning about Lily Allen’s video. Which is far more problematic than the fact that you’re a white person doing PR for an organisation that promotes black youth visibility, of course…
