Getting Serious With Silly Media


Dear Photograph

Dear Photograph,
Oh, the simple times of being young. To not worry about getting my hair wet or being able to bend over not knowing what agony I might face when I stand back up. These were times before my first love, my first heartbreak, my tumultuous youth; before I ever dreamed of being a mother, going to college, and just surviving life. I had no idea what my life story would be. I was just a little girl playing in a sprinkler.

For All That’s Bad, Unexpected Acts of Digital Generosity

This is my son Dexter, he picked these flowers last spring for my wife. Dex passed away 11/29/12 shortly after his 3rd birthday, complications from leukemia. Can anyone clean this iPhone pic up, or make an uber minimalist rendition from it?

My internet friends come together to honor the memory of my Mom who passed away unexpectedly on August 28, 2011. They declared Sept 4 to be a day to bake cookies and share with strangers, just like Mom did. See

Peeling the Onion on Digital Citizenship: Access


“Home Owners’ Loan Corporation Philadelphia redlining map” public domain image from Wikimedia Commons

In the United States and Canada, redlining is the systematic denial of various services to residents of specific, often racially associated, neighborhoods or communities, either directly or through the selective raising of prices.

Digital + Redlining

Digital redlining is when seemingly neutral algorithms inadvertently make decisions that lead to discrimination. Chris Gilliard teaches at Macomb Community College in Dearborn Michigan. He’s studied digital redlining and uses it as a powerful metaphor to talk about the way class divisions and racial discrimination can be fostered by algorithmic decision making.
CBC Spark Episode 412, November 2018

Digital redlining is not a renaming of the digital divide. It is a different thing, a set of education policies, investment decisions, and IT practices that actively create and maintain class boundaries through strictures that discriminate against specific groups. The digital divide is a noun; it is the consequence of many forces. In contrast, digital redlining is a verb, the “doing” of difference, a “doing” whose consequences reinforce existing class structures.
