@csigaloff looks good - will read. However the first question is why "social" why "innovation" and why "labs"? Curious as to your take...

or perhaps.. it comes from getting rid of the prescribed middle as well.. no?

If we allow originality to become more important than authenticity, we'll lose ourselves. Honor God; just be you.

As a writer, where you would presume education matters, I can't remember any employer asking where, or even if, I went to college.

“I am very conscious of how privileged I am, especially in here. When you are in prison white privilege works against you. You tend to react when you come out of white privilege by saying “you can’t do that” when prison authorities force you to do something arbitrary and meaningless. But the poor understand that’s the system. They know it is absurd, capricious and senseless, that it is all about being forced to pay deference to power. If you react out of white privilege it sets you apart. I have learned to respond as a collective, to speak to authority in a unified voice. And this has been good for me. I needed this.”
“We can talk about movement theory all we want,” she went on. “We can read Michel Foucault or Pierre Bourdieu, but at a certain point it becomes a game. You have to get out and live it. You have to actually build a movement. And if we don’t get to work to build a movement now there will be no one studying movement theory in a decade because there will be no movements. I can do this in prison. I can do this out of prison. It is all one struggle.”
