We OIA folk all did one, and since they build off each other I thought I'd stitch them together and stick them up here. We're talking about the use of video as a personal and communications tool (and I suspect I've stolen some of the thinking in mine from somewhere, probably John Grant, I apologise if that's the case.)
Here's a Resonance FM podcast featuring an interview with Kev F Sutherland about the state of comics in the UK and around the world. I'm not a big expert but this seems to be a useful primer on what's going on in comics around the world.
And then here, there's also discussion of legendary British comics character; Dan Dare - Pilot Of The Future.
Once you start blogging a lot you quickly get confronted with issues of copyright and digital rights ownership. And it's impossible to be involved with this stuff and not realise that we're in a period where individuals and large organisations are tussling about who should own what. And how things should work for the next few years. If you were going to look for sensible but radical guidance on those issues you could do worse than pay attention to the UK's Open Rights Group. And if you were looking for a cause to support with some of your New Year's Resolutionary spirit you could do worse than becoming a supporter.
