  • “Ela Darling … prefers to eschew traditional food choices in favor of a glass of Soylent. Before she discovered Silicon Valley’s favorite meal replacement, Darling would prep for a scene with a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich and a green coffee drink from Starbucks; but “Soylent makes me feel a hell of a lot better and it doesn’t add all the carbs and calories.” Darling also notes that “[Soylent] makes me feel satiated but not full and just generally good””

  • Among The Tor Project’s priorities: Avoiding the word “rape” and giving the exclusive to the New York Times. Maybe now HN dudes and hacktivist douchebros will stop questioning the validity of our experiences, though I doubt it. Et tu, Wikileaks? Snowden? “The Tor Project, a nonprofit digital privacy group, announced on Wednesday that an internal investigation had confirmed allegations of sexual misconduct against a former employee [Jake -aka Jacob- Appelbaum] who was the public face of the organization.”

  • Welcome to my world, one of constant discrimination and censorship, when I should be experiencing the same business opportunities as everyone else. Instead, we have to “sneak” … “But if the Passion Parties made it easy to talk to women directly, selling online made it harder. Klinger, like other sex toy manufacturers, couldn’t get the word out on Facebook and Instagram.
