This is excellent:
Led by brothers Khaled and Mohammad Aljawad from Syria, now based in Sheffield, 'Have Your Passport Ready' is an interactive film that explores the experience of asylum seekers. In an unknown city, without an interpreter, audiences become players collecting evidence to prove their right to remain in the UK. digital-lyceum.com/gallery

Highly recommend you give this a go.

I need you to know: I hated that I needed more than this from him. There is nothing more humiliating to me than my own desires. Nothing that makes me hate myself more than being burdensome and less than self-sufficient. I did not want to feel like the kind of nagging woman who might exist in a sit-com.

These were small things, and I told myself it was stupid to feel disappointed by them. I had arrived in my thirties believing that to need things from others made you weak. I think this is true for lots of people but I think it is especially true for women. When men desire things they are “passionate.” When they feel they have not received something they need they are “deprived,” or even “emasculated,” and given permission for all sorts of behavior. But when a woman needs she is needy. She is meant to contain within her own self everything necessary to be happy.

That I wanted someone to articulate that they loved me, that they saw me, was a personal failing and I tried to overcome it.

I wonder if I know anybody who can tell me what this says; this is one of my favorite shirts, I’ve had it for like five years, I took it home from a psych ward in Michigan, but I’ve never known what it says

The economy is in shambles right now. People are trying to ration their money so they have enough food to eat this month and Google is upset they may make 35 billion dollars instead of 40 billion.

I have to present at a conference tomorrow and I'm worried everyone's going to realise I'm a stupid baby who doesn't know anything

The fact that Mozilla published a statement in support of Google in the US v Google antitrust case should confirm for any remaining skeptics that my complete lack of faith in Mozilla is on-point.

Hopefully this is it, but I'm guessing they're going to pop up again like a monster in a horror movie.

"conservatives don't understand how important the arts are" No they get it, they just don't want poor people influencing culture.

Next I want to learn how to implement it as a macro

Following on from my proposal for an extended `switch` syntax, I've implemented it as an library. The syntax isn't quite as straightforward as in the proposal but it keeps to the same principles.

that thread about DARVO 

I said earlier that I'd talk about this, so.

It's important to know what DARVO is and how it's used as a tool to bully people into silence/complicity in bad behavior.

DARVO is an acronym. It stands for:

Deny
Attack
Reverse Victim and Offender.

It is a technique that is used by abusive people to cover up their abuse.

It is incredibly common. Knowing how to spot it is key.
