The media is a crowd without wisdom. There is hardly any varietyof opinion, independence of mind is mocked and ostracized, and reporters increasingly are twenty- and thirty-year-olds living in either New York City or D.C. whoare addicted to Twitter, where they out-snark each other todetermine who can assumethe best pose of knowingness. "As a result," Silver concludes, "it can be largely arbitrary which storylines gain traction and which ones don't. What seems like a multiplicity of perspectives might just be one or two, duplicated many times over." Perspectives that Donald Trump is an oaf or Hitler or an oafish Hitler...

The exact tone exemplified in a review by Anna Hanks in the Dallas Morning News about the SXSW event in Austin this past weekend titled Why Can't SXSW Get Beyond Bro-Culture:

"Outside of panels about tech industry diversity, the conference appears to be largely white male and committed to a future that looks suspiciously like the show "Mad Men," tethered to the 20th century"

"At a rock show the "sound guys" are often guys, the venue's crew is often male. On the media end of things, the on-air radio DJs are often male, the concert photographers at shows are often male. (One dark blessing: at the music industry nerd shows that I go to, there's rarely a line for the ladies' room.)" Horrors!

Anna Hanks is very wrong.

SXSW is extremely intolerant of white men. I know this because I attempted to get sent there by my company to give a tech talk, but could not come up with a satisfactory explanation on the SXSW talk application as to how I brought "diversity" to the event.

So I was passed over, but a Middle Eastern guy from our company with a similar application was accepted. Sure, could have been my proposed talk content, but I don't think so.

P N Dr Lo R says

How come nobody reports that Social Worker Conferences look "like a Girl's Sleepover"?
