Philo, on the other hand, streamlines that experience by acting as a sort of single, centralized Slingbox on college campuses. The startup takes care of all the wonky back-end details; the students don’t need to worry about having a cable box or set-top box or a Slingbox to hook them up to. Their college will purchase or offer a subscription TV package, and then it can offer Philo as an amenity–a way for students to access TV without, well, a TV.

That’s a welcome relief for college administrations, not least because they are increasingly concerned with online piracy. Several Harvard students told me Game of Thrones, which is said to be the most pirated TV series on the Internet, is now one of the most popular shows to watch (legally) on Philo. … [Read more...] about Tivli Rebrands As Philo.

You were in the honor track or the college prep track. Or the not college-prep track. I was pushed, perhaps by my over-eagerness and family toward that honors track. And Tonya, a light-skinned African American girl, was solidly pushed into college prep. We didn’t have classes together anymore. Our schedules in high school didn’t align. And all of sudden, our worlds just started to go on different paths. … [Read more...] about There’s no easy hack to allyship. Here’s what it really takes to support BIPOC
Meeting in-person is powerful.very public exchange with designer David Stairs on Design Observer after he wrote a piece criticizing the Designers Accord, among other initiatives. I invited David to the Summit and he not only attended, he was a vital contributor to the weekend’s dialogue. We’re all plagued with the ubiquitous email introduction from friends and colleagues, and yes, weak connections often have longer ties.
