'National Geographic' Reckons With Its Past: 'For Decades, Our Coverage Was Racist'

quote [ Editor in Chief Susan Goldberg asked John Edwin Mason, a professor of African history and the history of photography at the University of Virginia, to dive into the magazine's nearly 130-year archive and report back.

What Mason found was a long tradition of racism in the magazine's coverage: in its text, its choice of subjects, and in its famed photography. ]

Ward - Sequel to the web-serial Worm

quote [ The unwritten rules that govern the fights and outright wars between ?capes? have been amended: everyone gets their second chance. The world ended two years ago, and as humanity straddles the old world and the new, there aren?t records, witnesses, or facilities to answer the villains? past actions in the present.
Ward is the second work in the Parahumans series, and reading Worm first is strongly recommended. A lot of this won?t make sense otherwise and if you do find yourself a fan of the universe, the spoilers in Ward will affect the reading of the other work.

Ward is not recommended for young or sensitive readers. ]

Currently up to Arc 5.

The original web-serial was posted here and is around 1.7 million words long, roughly 10 novels in length.

Harry Potter and the Portrait of What Looked Like a Large Pile of Ash

quote [ Botnik is a community of writers, artists and developers collaborating with machines to create strange new things. The community is open to everyone. ]

How many JK Rowlings is this going to put out of work?

This might be a joke, but it's just a matter of time before Predictive Algorithm books are being crowdsource edited on mturk at half a penny per page.

Defining the Demonic

quote [ Although Jacques Collin de Plancy?s Dictionnaire infernal, a monumental compendium of all things diabolical, was first published in 1818 to much success, it is the fabulously illustrated final edition of 1863 which secured the book as a landmark in the study and representation of demons. Ed Simon explores the work and how at its heart lies an unlikely but pertinent synthesis of the Enlightenment and the occult. ]
