danah boyd: "Accountability without transformation is simply spectacle... [Change] requires everyone to hold each other accountable, but also to aim for reconciliation not simply retribution."

@annika ^^^ powerful words from Danah Boyd's acceptance speech at the EFF

Another key quote:

> I benefited from the generosity of men who tolerated and, in effect, enabled unethical, immoral, and criminal men. And because of that privilege, I managed to keep moving forward even as the collateral damage of patriarchy stifled the voices of so many others around me. I am angry and sad, horrified and disturbed because I know all too well that this world is not meritocratic.
