Teen Vogue continues its excellent tradition of radical reporting with Lucy Diavolo's explainer on the definitions and relative merits and demerits of "resistance," "rebellion" and "revolution."
Diavolo cites George Ciccariello-Maher (visiting scholar at the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics) and Keeanga-Yamhatta Taylor (African-American Studies professor at Princeton University).
Resistance: "Something that we do or can do every day, that we can do in a multiplicity of ways...not babbling about Russian interference on MSNBC every single day of the f*cking week." (George Ciccariello-Maher)
Rebellion: "A more explosive, momentary instance, in which resistance takes a more concrete, combative form in the streets, in popular protests — crucially, I think historically, in riots, whether it's Ferguson and Baltimore or the many riots that have put into motion political transformation historically...The moments that really crystallize something that needs to be changed, and transform consciences of millions of people in a relatively quick period of time," (George Ciccariello-Maher)
Revolution: "A wholly different plane [from resistance and rebellion]: When you're talking about revolution, you're talking about the complete and utter transformation of society and the way that it functions. And we haven't witnessed that... I do think it is possible, and we don't have a choice. We don't have forever to try to figure this out" (Keeanga-Yamhatta Taylor)

And if you’re going to be an asshole gender-obsessed parent-to-be, at least keep 6 feet apart, for everyone’s sake. I can’t stop watching this…pic.twitter.com/mW4tsGqYBT — Rex Chapman🏇🏼 (@RexChapman) […]

With more and more companies moving all their operations into the cloud, the need has never been greater for those with the skills to map exactly how an organization reconstitutes itself in that new environment. Network architects responsible for determining all the communication, storage, and infrastructure needs of an expansive organization are among the most […]
Even after months of working from home, you’d be forgiven for thinking the whole experience still doesn’t quite feel…well, normal. In addition to all the obvious environmental changes of handling your 9 to 5 from your den or dining room table, the technological aids you didn’t realize you loved back at the office probably don’t […]
Running a small business drops a lot on to the plate of just one person. And between juggling a dozen tasks that need to get handled daily, it’s no surprise that there are a dozen more equally vital tasks that can just as easily go overlooked. While posting to social channels and making web posts […]
