New to Boston Comic Con? A few survival tips - The Boston Globe

Seems as if the Globe has caught on with the fact that I’m kind of a dork, so I wrote about going to cons for them. Funny considering I haven’t gone to any this year and I’m kind of happy about that. Read more at The Boston Globe.

How Niche Sites are Building Safe Spaces and Better Communities - Model View Culture

With so much talk about harassment online, I wanted to talk about something more positive. I see so many websites that say they are “safe spaces” for marginalized groups, and all of them have policies, rules, and are active with their users. I talked to a…

Original Gamer - Motherboard

My first piece on Vice! I wrote about Patrick Rodriguez, a local game developer who makes a lot of games on the old Game Boy. But why would anybody do that? Well there’s some nostalgia in there, along with a need for a challenge. Also it just looks cool.…

A video game convention for the LGBT community widens its scope - Kill Screen

In the wake of PAX East, it seemed appropriate that my piece on GaymerX, which includes an interview with co-founder Matt Conn, would get posted on Kill Screen. We talked about why the convention would decide to broaden its scope from being an LGBT space,…

Trolling female gamers in the name of satire isn't funny—it's abusive - The Daily Dot

My first piece for The Daily Dot is now online! I wrote about the latest rage-inspiring topic in the Gamergate saga, which occurred when (sigh) a guy decided he was going to threaten people and then later claim it was all a joke. It got me thinking about…

WPI student hacks ‘Soda Drinker’ video game to help stroke patients rehab - BetaBoston

Considering I work for the Boston Globe, this was kind of a longtime coming. I’ve written about Soda Drinker Pro before, and to see it transform from a silly, cult indie game into something being used in the medical field is inspiring. See how this game…

What a children's show can teach us about sex and healthy relationships - Polygon

I’m especially proud of the way this piece turned out. My love for “Steven Universe” is only heightened by the fact that it’s so mature AND how mentioning that makes people want to watch it. As someone who has struggled with this myself, it’s great to see…

"Agents of SHIELD," motherhood, and the Black Widow problem

I’m really proud of Skye. Not so proud of Black Widow. Well, not necessarily proud of Skye as I am with the writers of “Agents of SHIELD” and how they managed to take a character with little grounds for being in the story at all and give her a reason to…

Plague Inc. and Ebola: The Unsettling Realism of Epidemic Simulators - Paste Magazine

In another episode of “Carli is uncomfortable about a thing, here’s why,” I talk about Ebola. It’s not in the news so much anymore, but at the time I pitched this piece it was at the forefront of my day-to-day life. I was working in cable news during the…
