You know the drill. Links after the break.

  • Here’s a transcript of TJ Thomas’ talk on race and the games industry at Indiecade East. It’s an interesting look at how people of colour have been systematically excluded in the telling of the history of the games industry.
  • Michelle Goldberg of The Nation writes about ideological divides in feminist movements. I don’t fully endorse this piece, but I think it does a good job of pointing out the toxicity that can fester in online activist movements.

That’s it for today. I’ll be back next week with more links to thinkpieces. (Linkpieces? Nah, that sounds stupid.)
