SXSW Panel: You Are Not Anonymous: The Myth of Online Privacy
Several friends have been telling me it’s a good idea to get hooked up with a VPN, a virtual private network, so as to keep my personal data secret and unsold online, unlike what typically happens in the wide-open web. And, you know, those friends certainly meant well. But they were wrong.

SXSW Film Review: A Critically Endangered Species
Maya Dardel (Lena Olin) is about to die. She has chosen to die, in fact. Her living corpse has rotted away long enough, and the vultures are circling.

SXSW Film Review: Signature Move
Lesbian romance films are often a joke even among lesbians. They’re so frequently over-the-top, poorly written, and about as basic as avocado toast, that relatability and true-to-life representation gets lost.
