    Nerds Assemble 281 - Nerds Safe For Work (we’re really not)

    Nerds Assemble 281 - Nerds Safe For Work (we’re really not)

    This week, join Emily, Paul and Paul as they take a trip through the complexities and (in some cases) ridiculousness of online platforms and said platforms’ difficult relationship with NSFW content, plus the pressure from interest groups and Apple to clean up even in adult spaces. Starting off with a look at the recent changes (and backtracks) Discord are making to its service on iOS devices, our intrepid nerds attempt as best they can to make sense of the repeated moves by platform holders to “cleanse” the internet but also make it safe for those who need it to be safe. From fanworks to legitimate activities by sex workers, there’s a lot to digest here.
