Kainora: Before the Match

Reusing an old sketch pose of mine to churn out a quick kainora piece. On the horizon (hopefully) is a comic strip featuring the slightly older version of these two after Kai has joined a pro bending team! Written by trylanaire. His uniform is based off of the sky bison color scheme, because how perfect is that?

Hey there new followers and other cuties, just fyi, I usually attend to posting stuff more frequently, but I’m in transition of moving between places, so please be patient and I’ll hopefully be back to a regularly scheduled programming soon :*

I thought it might have just been an initial reaction, but the two latest korra episodes were… kind of underwhelming for me. I don’t even feel a need to watch them again. They weren’t bad episodes by any means. I loved seeing beifong flashbacks, and how could you not love that kainora, but… hopefully the next two are a bit more engaging!

I HAVE BEEN TRAVELING FOR THE PAST 50 STRAIGHT HOURS AND I’M FINALLY ABOUT TO WATCH THE NEW KORRAS yay

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO): Net Neutrality (by LastWeekTonight)

A brilliant overview and critique of Net Neutrality (“the only two words more boring in the English language are ‘featuring Sting’”). Especially if you’re American, please do me a personal favor and just watch. Then go here (and keep trying - don’t let the site crashing keep you from having your say).

The Verge has an article on how to file a comment.  http://www.theverge.com/2014/5/15/5720730/how-to-comment-on-fcc-net-neutrality-proposal 

The proceeding number for the Net ‘Neutrality’ proposal is 14-28.  

Long comments here. (http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload/display?z=aatpo)

Short comments here. (http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload/display?z=cc74d)

OR

Email the FCC at openinternet@fcc.gov, an email address they have set up with the anticipation of getting a huge buttload of feedback on this particular issue.

So far, the FCC has received more communications in response to this proposal than they have to any issue except Janet Jackson’s ‘wardrobe malfunction.’  I think we can do better than that.

The deadline was going to be today.  However, the FCC has gotten so much traffic that their servers have crashed.  They have extended the deadline for comments to midnight, July 18.

You now have till the end of the week to add your commentary, if you have not done so yet.  You can do so either using their system (once they get it back up) or the email above.

Fight For the Future, an information policy non-profit, has also set up this site to submit comments.  (Gong this route will auto-subscribe you to FFTF’s news emails, but you can unsubscribe and these guys have local connections that have promised to hand-deliver the commentary documents to the FCC if that’s what it takes.)

The bottom line of the argument, so far as I am concerned, is that historically, mass telecommunications services including radio, television and telephone are all classified as ‘common carriers’ under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934.  This designation identifies these services as a public good, and protects them in detailed ways from discriminatory practices that could damage the ability of Americans to communicate and access information freely and equally.

Notably, ALL of these services are increasingly migrating online. 

Title II classification is not necessarily ideal for the internet.  It’s 80 years old and needs updating for modern telecommunications.  However, it’s a damn sight better than anything else we’ve currently got or that has been put on the table.  It would at least continue to provide roughly equivalent protection, provide a basis upon which reasonable amendments could later be placed, and a strong precedent of tradition that would make corporate exploitation a much more difficult matter.

Just got a bunch of new followers. First off, hello, glad you’re here. And second, this is what I want to share most with you all right now.

New Book 3 Ship: Kainora

Tonight I’m feeling very down. This helped pass some time. Yes, I did use my icon pic as a reference. Not really sure who Kai is giving a stink eye to…

Immediate headcannon that the incident which occurred “years ago” that prompted Toph to go off on her own “to wander the world” was Sokka’s death.
