    Hallo everyone :) Thank you so much for joining out gitter channel.
    We are running an initiative to encourage low-tech contribution to our project through text.
    We will be posting one question every week to initiate discussions around computational inclusion and digital equity and we encourage you to text us your answers in the chat box.
    Participation can also be done in Telegram and Matrix anonymously and without sharing phone numbers. We will then collect all the answers and publish them on OpenCider. :)

    I am very excited to see the outputs of this :) for a recent team videocall one of our participants couldnโ€™t get a high enough quality connection - we ended up all muting and communicating via text so we were on the same platform, but also could at least see each othersโ€™ faces while working.

    jwf (he/him) If it would be useful, I am a co-maintainer of a Telegram bridge bot. It could connect this room to Telegram if that would be helpful :)

    @selgebali
    yeah!! I love the fact we can communicate across any platform and still be involved in the same discussion! I know Justin mentioned a Telegram bridge but I don't know how to do it...

    Charles A Anaman Seemed like they'd tried to have the paper she was coauthor on: https://mobile.twitter.com/timnitgebru/status/1334341991795142667
    Charles A Anaman Still listening to a podcast on the whole saga trying to make sense of it.

    On the other side of this, it could be a starting discussion to raise even more awareness of the marginalisation that folks face if they aren't like the current majority of the leadership in technology. In the Linux Foundation mag i got last week the foundation board had 8/25 members as women (0/25 People of Colour)

    God. That statement and the strategic use of words like "departure" "Dr. Gebru left" making it sound like you resigned without using those words, when you were... fired."
