Linkspam: snails, making friends with failure, and #ManicureMonday
Posted by Lashings of Ginger Beer Time
Bit of a gloomy question for a winter opener, but deconstructs some assumptions fairly well: what should I do with my life?
Via tumblr, a comic on making friends with failure. (No transcript or alt text - apologies.)
Two Colours In My Head writes about dressing up, gendering of colours, and parenting a toddler who loves snails.
Volunteering and meritocracy: the ethics of unpaid labour and the open source software community.
GeekFeminism has curated their top picks of what happens when scientists join in on teen-magazine hashtag #ManicureMonday.
... and finally, at 8pm on the 26th (today! Tuesday!), there will be a twitter club/conversation using the hashtag #NHSgenderID, focussing on gender as non-binary, and the experiences of people with "non-traditional" genders in the healthcare system. For all it'll be a hard conversation, we hope to see some of you there!
