  1. Metafoundry 15: Scribbled Leatherjackets

    I’ve always been a little uneasy about the enthusiastic “makers are good, non-makers are bad” distinction that’s implicit in a lot of things in “our” world these days. Deb Chachra does a good job of explaining why. (via many people)

  2. Dan Golding — The End of Gamers

    This change in gaming seems long and slow and so I’m just picking out this one article to save as an almost arbitrary, but appropriately titled, marker for when gaming, and gamers, changed, (via @GreatDismal)

  3. What’s the difference between r/creepshots and a national newspaper?

  7. Growing Up Female | The New York Review of Books

    For the sometimes jaw-dropping examples of sexism from not so long ago.
