For some reason, this didn't propagate properly when it was first published.

While my research centers on writing a transmedia story, the processes of it and how and why it works, there is also a social component to it. I deliberately chose to have my story be about the journey of a refugee girl escaping from war at home and trying to find a safe place to live. There are two main reasons for this: the first has to do with my experience as a Mexican-American growing up on the border of Texas and Mexico, and the second has to do with the appalling use of “boat people” as a political football by the government and the opposition here in Australia.

Doing a bit of reading before heading off to lunch.

Maybe if I try to post something here once a day, it'll eventually be something useful.

This thing is basically only useful (although it is very useful!) as a subculture facilitator, IMO. It's great for games and talking about work/creative projects and basically useless for most of the normal social networking stuff...

Boosting the signal on this...
 
As seen on twitter: There is an open list of women creators in indie games being created on Google+. If you are one, add yourself to it and pass it along!

Now we can see how few internet connections actually link to Australia.
When former US senator Ted Stevens described the internet in 2006 as a “series of tubes” he was mocked mercilessly, but as this map of the vast network of undersea cables that the internet runs through is anything to go by, he wasn’t too far off.

Okay, Google. WTF? Aside from being such an obvious way to lose people, how is this at all in line with your supposed values?
