How Quebec Cree avoided the fate of Attawapiskat →
The Cree of northern Quebec are writing a startlingly different story than their cousins in Attawapiskat and Keshechewan on the western shore of James Bay, with decent schools and development rather than flooding and despair. Terry Milewski talks to Quebec Cree leaders about their different path. I don’t think you can take one success story and just copy it in other places and have any...
World Comics! →
colinupton: In the latest Cloudscape web cast episode of The Panel host Ed Appleby, Jonathan Dalton and I attempt to cover the history of comics since the 16th centuary and around the world! Yikes! This episode was a lot of fun to make, so it must be almost as much fun to listen to. Listen and learn, or google and fact-check!
"Everyone lives in Asia"
fuckyeahcartography: http://www.slate.com/blogs/moneybox/2013/05/07/asia_population_circle.html Never mind the future, welcome to the present. …And the past, actually, Asia’s been the centre of world population for nearly all of what could fairly be considered history.

Photos from the Victoria public library’s Free Comic Book Day event two years ago. I was there in 2011 and I’ll be there again this year- which is Saturday!
Friday May 3rd
kagcomix: If you’re in Vancouver this friday, why not come to the opening of Stratus, the Cloudscape Show at the Ayden Gallery? It’s from 7-11 pm & will be a good time. The facebook event is here. I have art in this show! FYI, Stratus will be one of only TWO remaining opportunities anywhere in the world where I will have a copy of my famous accordion-fold edition of Lords of Death and...

lostcitycomics: I just saw a conversation about whether or not white privilege exists in Japan (or anywhere outside the parts of the world where white people are the majority), and Tumblr being what it is, it’s too difficult to repost it so I will simply dive in without context. Let me cut… That’s pretty much how I figured it was. My question is, do you think African-American are...
The Sun Never Sets on White Privilege
I just saw a conversation about whether or not white privilege exists in Japan (or anywhere outside the parts of the world where white people are the majority), and Tumblr being what it is, it’s too difficult to repost it so I will simply dive in without context. Let me cut to the chase and say that yes, indeed, white privilege CERTAINLY exists outside of the West. Remember why white...

When they went to translate Cho Chang into Chinese →
aniseshaw: Look at the fucking run around they had to do because they’re like “lol, this waiguoren doesn’t know shit about Chinese names”. Lol. If I ever get around to reading these books, I’m now going to translate her name as “Zhang Qiu” in my head every time I see the random mess of letters that is “Cho Chang.” Chou means “stinky” in Mandarin. Ha ha...
Una the Blade: Why diversity? →
unatheblade: jackdawgin: unatheblade: Here I’m going to write out an unfocused ramble about why I think it’s a smart idea to diversify one’s fictional cast of characters whenever possible. Full disclosure: I am a straight white man. Everybody likes stories. Stories are just one of those things every culture uses to tell itself about… Thank you for the excellent and well thought out...
Teachers are often unaware of the gender distribution of talk in their...– (via nmsuwsprof) Interesting. I strongly suspect that this is age-sensitive. I do notice a gender imbalance in classroom dialogue at the middle school and high school level. In every class there are inevitably a handful of girls who will volunteer as much talk as the talkative boys, but talkative...
