From Los Angeles Times

At age 8, Audrey Tang wrote a computer game for her 4-year-old brother to help him learn fractions. At 14, she dropped out of school to start a search-engine company. At 19, she had left Taiwan to work as an entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. Now, at 36, she is Taiwan’s youngest government minister, charged with jump-starting the island’s stagnating, $130-billion high-tech sector. She is also Taiwan’s first transgender Cabinet minister and, perhaps most remarkable, the only one who describes herself as an anarchist.

Context: This is a response to internet scandal over a demo that was called for at the home of the Olympia pig who shot Andre Thompson and Bryson Chaplin early Thursday morning. Several Olympia activists, professional allies, etc. got up in arms over the fact that this was not organized by the management of yesterday's 11 am and 6 pm demos, and that anarchists (who were presumed to be white, many but not all of whom are) did not seek approval from self-proclaimed leaders. The piece seeks to dispel common misconceptions and clarify our positions in this struggle. We welcome further dialogue and dispute.
