Allison’s Recent Updates

Allison Hiltz shared a quote
The Dark Net by Jamie Bartlett
“Smári has scrutinized current National Security Agency (NSA) programs revealed by Edward Snowden and the overall security budget of the U.S. government, and calculated it currently costs 13 cents a day to spy on every internet user in the world. He hopes that default encryption services like his will push that closer to $10,000. It’s not to stop people being spied on—he agrees that’s sometimes necessary—but rather to drastically limit it. At this inflated cost he estimates the U.S. government would only be able to afford to keep tabs on around 30,000 people. “If we can’t trust the government to do only those things that are necessary and proportionate—and we can’t—then economics can force them to.”

Women & Power by Mary Beard
“it doesn’t much matter what line you take as a woman, if you venture into traditional male territory, the abuse comes anyway. It is not what you say that prompts it, it’s simply the fact that you’re saying it.”

Stéphane Mallarmé
“Everything in the world exists in order to end up as a book.”
Stéphane Mallarmé

“I always end up feeling like I've been down in a dark basement and there's all that reality there, and now I'm out in the sunshine trying to explain to the people in the sunshine what's going on in the basement. It isn't that the people in the sunshine are bad people, but they haven't been in the basement. ”
Salamishah Tillet, Gloria Steinem: The Kindle Singles Interview
