Equithon and Mr. Rogers

October 30, 2018

#equity-and-inclusion

I went to Equithon 2018 a few months ago. It was great, probably the best hackathon I've been to. Join the Equithon 2019 mailing list to get a reminder when the application opens!

#culture

To be honest, I'm not sure what the appropriate tag is for this, so culture it is.

Here's (6:50) Mr. Rogers speaking to a senate subcommittee on importance of national public television and the education it can provide to children. In it is a great reminder that you are unique. "You've made this day a special day by just your being you. There's no person in the world like you, and I like you just the way your are".

The Fetishization of Mr. Rogers’s ‘Look for the Helpers’: "Once a television comfort for preschoolers, 'Look for the helpers' has become a consolation meme for tragedy".
