#MacroSW Chat 4/25/2019: The Fine Line Between Willing and Coerced Sex Work

Our #MacroSW partner Kristin Battista-Frazee will be hosting the first in a series on sex work for our Thursday night #MacroSW chats.

So… Continue reading #SWDE2019 Day 3 Visual Twitter: People really do attend the final sessions here.

#SWDE2019 Day 1, continued: Blogging the Con.

In earlier versions of my conference blog posts, I'd try to get into the presentations I attended. Twitter and Wakelet have upended that need, and that's good, because at their best, those platforms simply allow people to crowdsource. That's what I am trying to do here: aggregating. I am hoping to get a decent crowdsourcing… Continue reading #SWDE2019 Day 1, continued: Blogging the Con.

Blogging the conference, #SWDE2019 Day 1 (Brief) Recap: We need to extend our reach.
