Tabs Must Go!

Via Caitlin Cisek, a pretty thoughtful article on appropriation. The line between "appropriation" and, you know, just wearing a Canadian Mounty costume is kinda fuzzy.
Staying on the right side of the inspiration/appropriation divide requires individual awareness and attention to three S’s: significance (or sacredness), source and similarity.
The author is Susan Scafidi. She wrote a book called "Who Owns Culture? Appropriation and Authenticity in American Law" which seems kinda interesting.
HFSExplorer is a free program for reading HFS discs on a PC.

And for those of you playing along at home, Caitlin Cisek's Tumblr.
