We have seen many people who are regarded as leaders in their teams, their groups, their offices not because of their position but simply because they become a hub around which communication happens. They help others by describing, interpreting and explaining things that are happening in the company. They act as the communication glue that binds teams, groups and projects together. They are not afraid to speak up and others will look to them to make a case, or explain a question. Put simply, they act through communicating and in so doing help others - and themselves - to learn.
And if you make it to C/O Berlin, don’t miss out on Will McBride’s incredible documentation of Berlin in the late 50ies. So so good. This is a shot of Bernauer Strasse near where SoundCloud HQ is now located. (at C/O Berlin)
Amazing. @lukeleighfield really upped the ante when it comes to Kickstarter rewards: pink vinyl, CD, poster, tote, stickers, shirt, newspaper, all the things!! Congrats buddy and thanks for such a nice package. (at SoundCloud HQ)
A friend of mine mentioned to me that this video was the first time she realized that it is not normal for this to happen to women. Meaning, she has accepted it as fact that when she walks out in public she will be harassed and this video made her aware that it’s not ok.
I’ve never heard about the organization before but I’m glad to hear that they exist. Their tagline is strong:
You have the power to end street harassment
As a white adult male I don’t think I’ve ever been approached or spoken to on the streets by a stranger (except by mentally disturbed people on the streets of San Francisco - but thats for another post)and I would like to live in a world where everyone feels the same safety in public, no matter their race or gender.
I’m not really sure how I can help in this moment besides sharing this video and donating to their organization but if you have any ideas please do share them with me.
The vast majority of advice you’ll be given in your life will be one of two types: Either ‘Do what I did’ or ‘Do what’s best for me right now.’ Make sure you take the time to identify if either is the case before taking the advice at face value.
