Three Interesting Things

1. This article took a look at the changing math that current college students are facing
2. I try to make it a practice to go through and regularly report online harassers, because I tend to face far less harassment than others so it's not as triggering for me to read all that.  But I have to set limits.  This explanation from a programmer who had created a Wordpress plugin that caught a lot of the crap for why he had to quit made sense.  Giving social media and web based companies all the ad revenue and letting them off the hook on the bad things that happen on their platforms mean a lot of their users take the hit, often for free. 
3. The Arena Stage Director talks a little more about her consensus organizing process, which was used, for example in "Smart People".
