  • you 2! let's connect in nyc k :D “@thatsJodi: Great running into @dcap at the Anarchist People of Color Convergence! #APOC2012 € #
  • I can't wait to bring @corvida to next year's #apoc convergence, maybe by then I can convince her to go! ;) I'm having a blast in #nola #
  • lmfao “@thrillchasa: I want to find a woman to be thirsty over just so I can say I experienced that in life.” #
  • .@digitalmiss Oh I emailed you a few times ... I'm in New Orleans now & filed my piece already but thanks for checking in! in reply to digitalmiss #
  • .@corvida what is O:) ? Does that mean you're thinking about eggs? in reply to corvida #
  • I'm full of NOLA sweet tea and fried chicken. Pretty boss feeling. #
  • We HAVE to visit NOLA together at some point in near future @laurenthedark & @corvida! #
  • .@corvida @CampbellX yr gonna love my hair ;) hehe in reply to corvida #
  • I'm tweeting as @POCZineProject at #APOC2012 @apocconvergence. Sharing knowledge #
  • About to have shrimp gumbo in the french quarter. Bucket list item: check :) #
  • @Favortreeapp @knightfdn awesome! <3 in reply to Favortreeapp #
  • We need more white tech startup founders & VCs 2 advocate 4 inclusivity & to factor that into their biz plan. True innovation reaches every1 #
  • I'm disappointed that many community focused tech startups somehow forget that actively involving POC & low-income ppl benefits EVERYONE. #
  • Less ppl wd think Star Trek was cool if only the rich & white characters knew how 2 use transporter tech. "Beam me (the privileged) up!" #
  • I think the 1st discussion @ a startup should include this question: how can we innovate & B inclusive? Distro strat @ forefront of planning #
  • 2/2 will only happen if FavorTree & beta participants partner w existing community efforts 2 help low-income ppl. Widen the circle+impact. #
  • The ppl who really need something like FavorTree are low-income, not hipsters who need to borrow a bike. So how will this happen? 1/2 #
  • If yr a startup creating community-focused apps & u don't make reaching low-income ppl a priority, yr just contributing 2 the digital divide #
  • 2/2 "can't afford outreach efforts w low-income ppl"=not an excuse 4 startups. learn from community organizers. sharing info IRL can B free. #
  • If u assume that bcuz yr community-focused app has a web browser version yr reaching low-income ppl, yr wrong. What is yr outreach plan? 1/2 #
  • Any startup focusing on community building shd be partnering w public libraries 2 make access 2 the tech accessible to everyone. #
  • I think if yr startup is about building community u must factor in outreach to low-income & POC-in advance. Responsible entrepreneurship. #
  • A great potential use of FavorTree cd B skill-sharing initiative in NOLA 2 help residents gain new job skills. Match ppl w low-income folks. #
  • My point is that a community-building app=only as successful as yr distro & outreach plan. Privilege plays a role in who finds out about it. #
  • I hope FavorTree founders considers barriers of entry & involves low-income ppl. A community = more than just ppl who can afford smartphones #
  • 2/2 bcuz if the intention is 2 build community, u R not doing it right if people of color & low-income ppl R not part of your outreach plan. #
  • My concern re: many social good tech projects = often its white ppl making apps mostly used by white ppl. Need better outreach strat 1/2 #
  • MaconMoney, another Knight Foundation community project, didn't reach many African Americans. How will FavorTree reach POC & low-income ppl? #
  • I wonder how FavorTree is going to ensure that low-income people have option to participate. They cd benefit the most. #
  • Landed in New Orleans. TY to @apocconvergence for proving transport from airport and a place to stay while I'm out here. Excited! #
  • New Orleans bound (@ John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) w/ 55 others) #
  • Dear Twitter geniuses: the movie "White Chicks" is not the same as the Brooklyn ADA doing blackface. The movie can't prosecute POC. :/ geez #
  • .@youtube see previous tweet. i've noticed that the auto-associated "artist" and "buy now" details on fan videos for songs don't match. #
  • .@youtube Some videos aren't displaying correct artist and track attribution on fan channels. #
  • Flying to New Orleans tomorrow for @apocconvergence. Today is all about getting work done, packing and other misc. planning. #
  • "I look over your shoulder ... and judge your tweets." - a line from an upcoming thriller #ihope #candymansvoice #
  • BK bound. Traveling with popsicle #itswaaaaaaarm #

  • "All us job creators should be so proud. And we've saved so much hiring overseas, they never get sick!" #OverheardAtRomneyFundraiser #
  • "Yeah I use the N word. What? Kanye said it was ok. Yeah, exactly, he's like the ambassador for black people." #OverheardAtRomneyFundraiser #
  • "Rappers are rich - why don't poor people get mad at them? Maybe we should make an album ... dawg." #OverheardAtRomneyFundraiser #
  • "Who says I don't like Latinos? I trust my maid's son Miguel to polish my rare knife collection & he's six." #OverheardAtRomneyFundraiser #
  • "The gardeners want raises? Release the hounds." #OverheardAtRomneyFundraiser #
  • "How could anyone call me racist? My first nanny was BLACK and I loved her until I outgrew her!" #OverheardAtRomneyFundraiser #
  • I hope the new Batman movie doesn't get those #OWS people riled up again #OverheardAtRomneyFundraiser #
  • A few hundred thousand kids will miss breakfast & lunch while we get another tax break? Sounds fair to me! #OverheardAtRomneyFundraiser #
