AI Knows You Better Than You Know Yourself

My business partner and I went to Redwood City last Tuesday and Wednesday to attend Startup Grind, which is a techbro fest from hell, where everybody who’s kinda made it in Silicon Valley is on stage (those who’ve actually made it can’t be fucked coming to this dinky...

A Cup of Concrete

A Cup of Concrete

I spent last week with a group of Australians working on some strategy to help restore the world’s ecosystems. It was a complete privilege to do that work and needless to say, a real challenge as well. But I’ll spare you the details of my day job, I wanted to tell you...

On What Might Work

On What Might Work

Tonight I went and saw a dear friend of mine perform in “Butterfly Effect”, a dance show about climate change, activism, and how a diverse community of women (yes, only women) are our only hope to get out of the mess we’re in. It was stunning, moving, and...

It wasn’t peace, it was silence.

As I wrote about here, Chile is going through a really interesting process of trying to figure out how to reinvent itself in a way that most of its citizens can live with. Quite literally - many of the conditions folks are trying to change make living extremely hard,...

Language, Action, and Human Rights, v1

I’m no Bible scholar, but I do know that a whole lot of the psyche of the industrialized West is immersed in the Judeo-Christian myth, or mythology, if you’d rather. This is terribly important in politics, sociology, economics, medicine, community building,...

Las Tesis points out the Naked Patriarchy

I tried to remember how I first came across this and I can’t tell. I looked through my Whatsapp threads but I found nothing that was a direct link to them. It must have been Monday, November 25, 2019, because I told my friend Alex about having woken up dreaming about...

2020

I love me a new year. As an Aries, the idea of a fresh start is what I’m all about. The blank page. The cleanliness of not having messed up yet. The potential of everything being possible and nothing holding me back. This is just optimism, I guess, and I can plug into...

Once more for the back: we’re all in it together

Santiago de Chile exploded into the most intense expression of social unrest it’s seen in probably ever. The city is literally up in flames, roads are blocked, protesters are rioting, and the MILITARY took on the streets to restore order. And there is a CURFEW. Over...

Botox is the new black: On Vanity and Resistance

I’m a middle-aged (44 to be exact), Latina, single, straight, cis woman. All these things have mattered when it comes to my relationship with my appearance. As a proud rebel, I spent my first 30 years on Earth not giving a shit about my looks. Actually, not wanting to...

The Tech Bubble

The Tech Bubble

As you know, the economy is a collective hallucination. It is not a natural occurrence that we have no control over, it is agreed-upon consensus reality that we create by implementing policies, laws, tariffs, and all kinds of regulations that are agreements between...

Fear vs. Intuition

Fear vs. Intuition

“How do we distinguish between fear and intuition?” My friend texted me this question the other day, with no context and no further detail. Rather than try to text her back, I thought I would sit with it and give her a thoughtful response. My first reaction is that I...

Trolling the trolls

For the last couple of years, I’ve made it a habit to call out, to varying degrees of “publicly”, all white and/or all male spaces, specifically conferences or other events where people are presented as experts and/ or can make money, because excluding women and...

On Magic and Science

For the last few weeks, I have noticed that pretty consistently, things that I think of come to pass. I did notice such a phenomenon as a child and it was confusing as fuck, awkward for the adults, and actually kind of painful in that it was a pretty lonely experience...

Short-term Memory

A month ago, in the middle of July, I was in Aylesford, Kent, in England, teaching a leadership training for social justice leaders. It was a dream gig, really, traveling is one of my most favorite things to do, meeting new people is also one of my most favorite...

The Revolution of Insanity

The Revolution of Insanity

One of my besties is certifiably insane. As in, not having “bouts of depression”, or “panic attacks”, though that is certainly a part of it (and bouts of depression and panic attacks are fucking horrible symptoms of mental health issues. Horrible).  No, his insanity...

This is what middle-aged looks like

I have felt absolutely middle aged this week. Which should not be surprising considering that I am in fact 44 years old, which is pretty much exactly middle aged. I was traveling around Ireland when our rental car got broken into and my backpack (with my computer,...

I am surfing the edge between a psychiatric diagnosis and the next step towards spiritual enlightenment. Everything is going so incredibly well, and so devastatingly wrong, at the exact same time, it is painfully confusing. The paradox of life, the paradox that is...

What’s the worst thing that could happen

For the past two weeks I’ve watched in horror as the new regime implements unconstitutional decrees and is led (and I use that term loosely) by a man who appears to be in desperate need of mental health care. Plenty has been written about what is wrong with having Mr....
