Neda: A young woman's murder becomes the symbol of Iranian resistance

By now you might have seen the wrenching YouTube video: A young woman shot dead on the streets of Tehran as she and her father (some reports say he was one of her professors) watched a crowd of protestors on Saturday. You see her standing; you see her fall; you see the desparate effort to save her as blood spurts from her nose and mouth and streams down her beautiful, youthful face. ...more

10 Things I'm Too Overwhelmed to Write About, but That's O.K.

You've heard of writer's block? I think I may have writer's flood. While reviewing potential writing topics for BlogHer this week, something I generally start considering within 24 hours of publishing my weekly BlogHer post, I had lots of ideas, but soon realized that I did not want to do the kind of research I feel a BlogHer post deserves, didn't feel like figuring out the back story so I could write the front story. ...more

Your post gave me the courage to post about the overwhelm-ed-ness I've been living with for ... more

Smithsonian 2.0

Last week the "digilluminati" gathered in Washington, D.C. for an invitation-only gathering of minds dubbed "Smithsonian 2.0." If you think the word "museum" denotes an institution that concerns itself only with the past, you're in for a pleasant surprise because many museums the world over have been plunging into the social media waters to extend their learning (and, OK, marketing) opportunities. When an institution as large as the Smithsonian jumps into the 2.0 pool, you can expect there will be more waves than ripples. ...more

Excellent event coverage. If you want to see women under-represented go to a Smithsonian ... more

Sex and Disability panel from the SexTech conference

This week I went to the Sex::Tech conference in San Francisco hosted by ISIS. The Access Sex panel was on sex education, sexual health, and people with disabilities. I thought the BlogHeristas might like to see my detailed notes on the panel - it was largely about women's sexual health and sex education, and it also might intersect with our parenting community, since BlogHer has a strong group of mom bloggers who are parents of kids with special needs. ...more
