The Standard authors are off playing with the elves for a few weeks. Posts will be fewer for a time. There may be a series of Holiday Reads (and watches), a mix of random material and selected reposts from the past year. Have fun and take care out there.
A few short goodies to go on with.
Te Kahu Rolleston’s performance of From Patu to Pen,
Ursula Le Guin on visioning anarchist society,
The Greens rip Love Actually (it was a thing),
And some Twitter holiday fun,
