Around the Interwebz

Great post from The Black Snob on Sheryl Sandberg here

While Sandberg makes some valid points about women downplaying their worth or being afraid to negotiate for raises (this goes back to how often women, especially white women, are socialized to "be happy just to be here" then "apologize for existing"), her story is lacking in how myopic her view is. She's wealthy, accomplished, has an equally successful and supportive husband, nannies and had a career shepherded by a powerful man before blossoming as an executive and becoming the leader she is today. 
Basically, she's the best case scenario.

This is why we can't have nice things


And for a geeky note, I started doing new stories for my job and the first podcast is up!
