Gender bias, stereotypes, the shutdown, video games, crowdfunding and bad pitches – among other things. It’s hard to keep track of all the posts on this blog, or any blog, so I to write a quarterly roundup that pulls several months of posts together in one place so that people can see what they missed.
I should have written, and published, this roundup in September. Oops. So, this roundup covers much more than three months – and the next roundup will be much shorter.
So, here’s what I’ve run since July 11, 2013!
