I'm not entirely certain how to feel about this phenomenon, but I've noticed that CEOs and politicians get away with sex scandals more often than they do race related scandals. Charges of racism can end campaigns and careers while sex scandals get you a talk show host gig on CNN? Maybe we're not as prudish a society as some may say. Though we're damn sure intolerant of the seemingly intolerant.

I guess what concerns me is how quickly accusations of racism can spread. The 24 hour news cycle is always hungry for controversy and racism is a favorite food of choice. Sometimes, it's racism. Sometimes, it's just fucked up. And sometimes, it's not even close to racism. I feel like racism has become a trigger word that can sometimes do more harm than good. I'd like to see it become a word that sparks off intelligent discussion rather than accusatory reaction.

Magma Studio is a fun little web app. If you've got a browser, you've got a drawing app! Mostly. If you're using MacOS Safari, you get no tablet support. If you're using iOS Safari, you do get tablet support but no paste function. Both make me chuckle a bit. But overall, it's fun to play with. Sure, it could use some more functions in there, but I think it's a solid base app to build on. And you have draw with 30 friends at the same time! Big time art jam! Reminds me of the old oekaki days in the 90s.

So check it out. This is not sponsored, but I had fun with it and I think you will, too!
