“Does free speech mean literally anyone can say anything at any time? Or is it actually more conducive to the free exchange of ideas if we create a platform where women and people of color can say what they want without thousands of people screaming, ‘Fuck you, light yourself on fire, I know where you live’? If your entire answer to that very difficult question is ‘Free speech,’ then, I’m sorry, that tells me that you’re not really paying attention.” —Reddit gen. counsel

Me, looking at Pokemon plushies in the shop: “Hah! I’m glad I’m past the stage where I would have bought any of this stuff!”

Hi! I was thinking on doing a Master or someting similar in Data Journalism or Data Visualization, any favorite place? or is it a bad idea? I'd love to hear your thoughts 🤓

Always exciting to cross that threshold when some niche thing you’ve been participating in becomes “big enough” to be validated by coverage in a mainstream news media outlet:
