goodbye to extraction culture
presented an interesting challenge to replace industrial language with empowerment language when discussing the (potential) power of the internet. i hadn't thought about the industrial "extraction" culture filtering in to the online universe, but it's true that it has. it may be partly semantic, but also reflects the way we think - so thanks for pointing it out.

Meaning over Metrics
Really liked the tone of her talk. It will be all too easy for us to get lost in dataset and visualization forgetting the meaning of metrics. A great speaker, and I look forward to reading more of her thoughts online and in any books she's written.
