As a blogger, Dave Winer is inimitable, writing equal parts intelligence, humour, insight and spike. I've been reading his words for years and found him at times frustrating but mostly fun – and worth listening to.
But his 16 April piece, Mansplaining, halted my tea break mid-sip: it is a post which elegantly demonstrates the nexus of sexism and privilege in both the technology industry and society. It articulates – with greater subtlety that I expect Winer imagined – why there remains a critical need to educate and inform.
