This is why the marginalized and vulnerable need to be involved from day one. (I do diversity consults via Postmodern Woman, if anyone’s interested)

I’ve long wanted to recreate the #cuilverse in VR, as a way to spread compassion for differences and to finally step into my own personalized holodeck. But usually the powerful get to create these things. I would have thought to prevent this first.
We keep talking about how we need more minorities and diversity in tech. This is why. And I have plenty of ideas as to how. Maybe some folks will be willing to innovate with me where everyone else just keeps ignoring that these things matter.
