Animated Freedombox logo!

on July 28, 2011 in Art, Blog, Creativity, Freedom

In the midst of my series on Communication Skills Exercises, yesterday I worked with the brilliant, talented, and accomplished Nina Paley — free culture advocate, creator of Sita Sings the Blues, cartoonist of the insightful, funny, and subversive Mimi and Eunice, and friendly neighbor.

on July 1, 2011 in Blog, Freedom

I had heard of the Great Wall of China. Now I’m behind it.
