Reappropriate: The Podcast – Ep. 6 | Is Digital Activism “Real” Activism?

Episode 6 of Reappropriate: The Podcast is now live! This episode features a great conversation between myself and Cayden Mak (@Cayden) of 18MillionRising. We talk identity formation in an increasingly digital age, as well as digital tools as one of several tools in an activist toolbox. We briefly touch on the Stephen Salaita controversy in relation to the perils of when digital activism crosses over into the real-world.

Better Social Media Integration (and a New G+ Account)

This blog had been previously using the Sociable WP plugin to power its social media integration. However, I wasn’t too happy with this plugin’s general lack of customization, and what seemed like a crazy long load time. So, I spent some time over lunch today writing a manual integration of Twitter, Facebook and GPlus for this blog.

In summary, you should now have an easier time sharing Reappropriate posts through your favourite social media sites. If you have any issues, please let me know.

Also, because I needed to test Google+ integration, I got a Google+ account for this blog: gplus.to/reappropriate. Please add me if you happen to also be on the site.
