Patric Lewandowski joins the club of discussing the definition of "comic" with a new column over at Comixtalk. He has yet to mention my split between comics and visual language, but did use the magic VL words, so perhaps he's on his way there? Seems to be the start of a potentially interesting treatise at least, and I look forward to seeing where he's going with it.
At the very least, I'm glad

I have just posted my latest theoretical offering for download, "Time Frames... Or Not" where I tackle the assumptions that lead to the (false) belief that successive panels equal moments in time.Ã‚ While the linear sequence of comics' panels may seem on the surface to present a succession of individual moments, the understanding of comics sequences is hardly so simple. This paper explores various assumptions about sequential images to show why panels do not show successive moments in time.

For all of you interested in Net Neutrality (and that should be all of you), itÃ‚ seems that Congress is very close to stopping the threat against it. If you don't know what this is about, Net Neutrality means that all websites load equally fast, whereas this bill proposes to let telecom corporations decide which websites load faster than others based on how much site owners pay them.
