Remixing a social justice issue that isn’t covered as much… the digital divide – it’s more than just Internet Access, it’s understanding technology and using it. Addressing the lack of Black developers. Talking about the unbanked. Privacy. And with so many terms being coined daily, it’s easy to get confused.
Allow me to remix that.
thought.remixer is entering podcast mode starting April 2019.
It’s a bi-weekly series that covers the intersection between social justice and technology.
The podcast will be one of the many ways I will be engaging people on the site, so stay tuned. 🙂
Well, if you been following me on my Tumblr, you’ll know that I’ve been around. But I haven’t really been using this space to the best of my ability. But right now, I’m readjusting myself. If you are not fully aware of what’s going on, it can be summed up in a nice way: Tumblr is putting an adult ban on the site, causing people to leave in droves. The reason for the ban isn’t just because of the app being banned from the Apple Store, but for rebranding purposes. Sadly, a lot of people (including certain people in my network), is making it about porn being banned.
So, with that being said… I’m still posting to Tumblr. However, I’m going to go full steam with my blog here. From now on, all my original posts will be here, with Tumblr being an “echo” station. I no longer will post my work/words as a Tumblr “exclusive”.
Don’t get me wrong. I still will contribute to Tumblr and the “xtra” channel will still have conversations and curated content. But my time will be more spent here, making and improving on my craft and exporting it to the world.
So… long story short… if you’re coming from Tumblr and want to see me in other spots, here’s where you can find me.
I will be posting stuff up on YouTube in the near future and will be embedding them here. However, I don’t know on what channel I want to do it from, hence why no links yet.
On Tumblr, I’m still posting up as thoughtremixer and nukirk, and I’m working on making sure my little side projects are all it’s own domains. I’m closing up some of the Tumblr blogs as a way of “cleaning up shop”.
If you know me from #Blackout, then you know #BlackoutDay got their own channels. You can check out theblackout.org for those if you like. (I’m trying to keep this post short)
So, that’s it really. If it’s TL;DR – expect more on this blog, about the same output on Tumblr well into the future, and look for me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook while you’re at it.
While blogging isn’t a new thing for me, it has been years since I last posted on my own blog independently from other platforms. I have been posting on Tumblr formerly as WhatWhitesWillNeverKnow and presently as thoughtremixer. Then there are a few videos here and there. But to have a place where everything is together has been lower on the to-do list until now.
If you been here before and wondered where all the old posts went, they are gone. Most of the items are too irrelevant for me to keep online and some will return updated, but I rather keep this new blog clear of all those items. It helps motivate me to keep bring the flavor without being too attached to past accomplishments.
So, what are we going to talk about on this blog? Well, if you even read the Tumblr blog, it’s pretty much the same thing, but there will be more original posts here, and I will only post when I feel I can add to the conversation in a new way.
If you’re looking around & wondering why it’s bare, well, I did say I’m starting over. So, there’s not a lot to see. But as the days turn into months, you’ll see more, categories, tags and all.
If you subscribed to this blog via other ways before, you’ll notice that they are all gone… some due to inactivity, mostly because the services are not around anymore. Oh well, that’s why we’re starting over. If you want to subscribe by email to get alerted about posts, you’re free to do so on the sidebar.
Welcome to the new thought.remixer. A lot has happened since the last time I blogged in this space… so… let’s just get to it.
