Would you be surprised if I told you #ricebunny and #metoo are the same thing? If so, I highly recommend listening to this Note To Self podcast that digs into the effects and manifestation of the me too movement in China — and that inspired me to write this post…
Great news indeed. The wonderful Julia Kloiber just launched our very first SupeRRR Feminist Tech Fellowship, powered by Mozilla. It’s a special honor for me to support this exciting opportunity as a mentor.

And if you have any ideas, art or tech projects, research, written pieces, or otherwise creative things to share — or you might even want to support the overall effort and help us recruit even more fellows in the future, please let us know!
Thanks to an invitation from the Observer Research Foundation, I was able to join this year’s Raisina Dialogue from January 7-11 in (New) Delhi, India where we spent many, many hours (think of an official 9am-10.30pm programme) discussing geopolitical power dynamics and shifts in the current world order.
It wasn’t just a packed programme, it also provided me with some new perspectives and plenty of delegates challenging my own assumptions and worldviews. And while there were several discussions around cybersecurity, internet governance, and emerging technologies; the one discussion that left a lasting impression and had us up in debate for hours after hours was the one dedicated to the impact of #metoo and feminism more broadly across different regions: It’s a long way to equality. Let’s never give up!
