Maths is hard, let’s go linkspamming (7th January, 2010)

2010 January 7
  • It’s that time of the fortnight again: The 11th Carnival of Feminists – Global Edition! is live. The next carnival is on January 20, and accepting submissions of new feminist posts.
  • A Softer World: 518: the latest comic plays on gender identity, what do you think? (As with many webcomics, see the alt/mouseover text as well.)
  • Kotaku has a list of The Ten Most Influential Women in Games of the Past Decade (Update: which they syndicated from Gaming Angels) (see also The Border House’s take)
  • Realms of Fantasy is doing a “Women in Fantasy” themed issue in August 2011 and is looking for fiction, non-fiction and art by women, especially but not exclusively on feminist and/or gender themes. (Via Jim C. Hines who has a discussion of it in his LJ.)
  • Farah Mendlesohn, interviewed by Graham Sleight: Mendlesohn is the editor of On Joanna Russ, a book of critical essays on Russ’s work.
  • Dreamwidth’s Diversity is its Strength – Openness, Mentoring, Diversity: Juliet Kemp talks about Dreamwidth and its development culture.
  • Women & Technology 1999 – 2009: Sarah Blow reviews the tenor of news stories about women in technology over the last decade
  • (trigger warning) So how does an awesome girl like me come to have an Eating Disorder?: references busygamer.com's "gamettes" as part of the problem.

    Thanks for changing the stylesheet so that links are visible (underlined) to colorblind folks!

      Kudos to Terri for agitating for a fix for this, and our Theme Wrangler tigtog for getting stuck into it.

    OMg. I love love love that A Softer World comic – thank you so much for that link. I might even buy a print. It’s kind of perfect.

    Kotaku actually syndicated that top 10 list from GamingAngels.com, which is where the article originally appeared. However, Kotaku forgot to, or neglected to link to the original article. The post on Border House references the original article. :)
