I wrote a small contribution about chatty therapy bots and the politics of mental health for the new INC publication "State Machines: Reflections and Actions at the Edge of Digital Citizenship, Finance, and Art": http://networkcultures.org/blog/publication/state-machines-reflections-and-actions-at-the-edge-of-digital-citizenship-finance-and-art/
On the upcoming education strike in NL (15/03):
"So what’s wrong with Dutch education? The answer can be found in the policy mix pursued by successive Dutch governments, contriving to simulate an austerity-driven market mechanism in the public sector. Universities and schools are encouraged to compete against each other for students and monies, under emaciated budgets, on the basis of dubious benchmarks and targets. The policy has raised the student/staff ratio in the Netherlands to one among the highest in the OECD – higher than the US, Greece and Italy; the ratio is approaching 20 in the main research universities."

It takes time, efforts, patience, mistakes, humility, self-questioning (and maybe some courage?) to try to become *every*day* a better ally to #feminism and women's rights.
A lot of introspection and privilege-checking to understand the deep roots of systemic oppression, colonialism, capitalism, etc.
A necessary effort for everyone to try to not be part of the problem anymore.
Thanks to all who helped and help me everyday on that path! <3
