 Cartoonists are divided by twitter. I enjoy the connection it gives me to other cartoonists, friends and eco-geeks, but draw the line at having it on my phone.

Update: just read a great article in Time that explains the advantages of twitter better than I can.

  1. I quite liked this article about Twitter: How the Other Half Writes: In defense of Twitter

    I get a lot out of Twitter, it’s different from other web platforms, fills a different need.

  3. Imagine an ocean without fish. Imagine your meals without seafood. Imagine
    the global consequences.

    Hi,

    Julia here from Rooftop Films, a NYC nonprofit organization and summer
    film festival.(www.rooftopfilms.com) I thought you might be interested in
    one of our upcoming environmental-advocacy screenings!

    On Saturday, August 22nd, Rooftop Films and the Fledgling Fund will be
    screening The End of the Line on Governor’s Island. The End of the Line is
    the first major feature documentary film revealing the impact of
    overfishing on our oceans.

    This screening is part of a global campaign for citizens to demand better
    marine policies, and for leading environmental organizations to let our
    audience know how they can make a difference before it’s too late.

    The newly opened beach on Governors Island rests on the coast of the New
    York Harbor, and provides stunning views of Lower Manhattan; here we will
    host a fun and informative community engagement event. Local sustainable
    seafood will be served, marine-conservation organizations will set up
    entertaining, educational activities, and the audience will not only hear
    about the issues raised in the film, they’ll get activated.

    In the film we see firsthand the effects of our global love affair with
    fish as food. It examines the imminent extinction of bluefin tuna, brought
    on by an increasing western demand for sushi; the impact on marine life
    resulting in huge overpopulation of jellyfish; and the profound
    implications of a future world with no fish that would bring certain mass
    starvation.

    It would be great if you could post a notice about the screening online or
    in a mailing list this week!

    Here is some more information about the screening:
