The World Is Thinking... Comix!

Speaking of forums, I received the following email yesterday:

You have a great site and wonderful blog and it is refreshing to know that you are very passionate about the topics you discuss.

Here at we are passionate about bringing the best political, social and cultural content from the world's leading forums.

Today's feature video is titled "Cartoons You’ll Never See in The New Yorker Video" in which Cartoonist Matthew Diffee and New Yorker Cartoon Editor Robert Mankoff discuss the unique sensibility of the New Yorker cartoon and how the magazine's selection process works.

We would love for you to join in on this discussion over at and we can't wait for you to come look at our new site, if you enjoy this type of content.

Keep up the great work!

I have embedded the video below (Chapter 4 features some unused cartoons deemed "unworthy" for the New Yorker).

So, What is ‘’? According to the site's FAQ,
The word fora is simply the plural of "forum." The dictionary definition of forum is: the public square or marketplace of an ancient Roman city that was the assembly place for public business.

There's a lot of cool content (archived video & audio podcasts) and features to be found on their site so if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go do some forum hopping.
