10 Things I Liked Enough to Show You: 6–12 February 2016

  1. Believe it or not, Reddit can be cute. Aw.
  2. The CDC's alcohol guidelines aimed at women were pretty paternalistic and condescending, so I love that someone updated them for men
  3. If you thought certain players in Silicon Valley might be out of touch, the answer is yes.
  4. Twitter has announced a new plan to curb harassment, and I'm hopeful despite their terrible track record.
  5. A negotiation tactic called indaba managed to bring 195 countries to consensus, so let's hope it spreads.
  6. Calgary's mayor Naheed Nenshi has issued a poetry challenge to other mayors across Canada to start a council meeting in March or April with a reading from a local poet. This poet approves!
  7. Even well-intentioned people end up whitesplaining racism in ways they don't meant to. Here's how to avoid being condescending and show more compassion.
  8. Toronto Cat Rescue's "Get Your F*cking Cat Fixed" t-shirt kills me. You can buy one here.
  9. Facebook, exercising its high creep factor, is testing a feature that scans its app's users' recent photos to find ones that look like their friends, which is why I will continue not downloading their mobile app ever.
  10. I've been listening to Nas' album Illmatic on repeat all week. Can you believe it is 22 years old?
