Cool day: A couple of weeks ago, Rod Amis of G-21, the World’s Magazine asked me to sit for an interview. We talked blogging and activism via email, and it was a lot of fun. Now the interview is live and available for reading. Check it out! And while you’re at it, pop by the Huffington Post. Arianna and the gang are hosting the Contagious Festival, a monthly competition featuring “original work by talented designers, activists, filmmakers and comics.” One of the February contestants is none other than G-21’s Mr. Amis. Rod’s got some thought-provoking work up at the HuffPost – have a look, and if you like it, cast a vote for him.
And how about this: My September essay “Rosa Parks: She Sat, She Inspired” is one of the (more than 200 – egad!) first-round Best Post nominees for Wampum’s 2005 Koufax Awards, which honor lefty bloggers. Voting is not yet under way, but I’ll let you know when balloting begins. I’m really proud of that article; it would be nice to see it gain some recognition in the wider world.
