{February 01, 2009}   Pink Shirt Day: BULLYING STOPS HERE!

Nova Scotia, Sept 2007. Two grads saw a young boy being bullied for wearing pink, so they went to a nearby discount store and bought 50 pink shirts, including tank tops, to wear to school the next day. Since then, a campaing against bullying is trying to be carried out. Pink Shirt Anti-Bullying Day is the last Wednesday of every February. For 2009 this is February 25th. There are also groups about this campaing in Facebook and Twitter.

On February 25th wear something pink to symbolize that we as a society will not tolerate bullying anywhere.


Pink Shirt Day. Bullying Stops here. February 25th 2009

{May 26, 2008}   Eclectic Tech Carnival

The /ETC is a unique tech skill-share that has been held annually since 2002. The emphasis has always been women sharing their experiences, knowledge and skills around free software, open hardware and universal interoperability of systems in a fun way.

In addition to the skill-share program, this year the Eclectic Tech Carnival will be focusing on a number of specific political issues: the “life cycle” of hardware – from mining, to labour practices in the manufacturing industry, to waste management. In addition they will explore why there seems to be so little public interest in Privacy, or lack of, on the Net. And what can we learn from the Creative Commons movement?
