SXSW is made of panels. You knew that, but did you know this?: You, random individual, you get to pick the panels. Panels like the one proposed in the video above. It’s a very good video, and if you pick it, it’ll be an even better panel.

Here’s the panels we’ll be on, if you decide to pick them:

Like the sound of these? Pick them, and we’ll see you in Austin next March. 

Hey, our panel is on this list! Can you guess which one? ;) Please take a moment to vote for our panel on fandom, and while you’re at it, don’t forget to vote for our other panel on YouTube culture!

'GIF specialist' is now a real job

Heads up, Tumblr fans, Imgur hounds, and other GIF-lovers: Giphy, the popular image bank that allows you search for reaction GIFs and other GIFs by theme or type, has posted a hiring notice for its latest staff opening. The position? “GIF Content Specialist.”

So how can you leverage this new career asset you didn’t know you had? We have a few suggestions.

Tips for Putting Gifs On Your Resume:

1) Create a GIF portfolio of your best work.

We recommend Tumblr as a great location for showcasing GIFs in their natural habitat. Link to it on your résumé.

2) Show off your technical knowledge.

Don’t be afraid to list your GIF specs. Knowing a Tumblr-worthy GIF is 35 frames, with a file size of 200MB and a resolution of 256, will help your potential employer size up your expertise when it comes to GIF-making, as well as Photoshop.

But don’t just stop at saying you know how to use Photoshop. It takes a lot of software to create a GIF. You can list Photoshop, CamStudio, VirtualDub, or whatever capture and editing software you’re most familiar with on your résumé.

#TFIOS proves that fandom is blockbuster business

(On Tumblr.)

The Kickstarter project that killed Tumblr's favorite meme

Is Tumblr’s beloved  Miss Officer and Mr Truffles fanart meme all just a scam? Fanartist Ami Guillen, lemonteaflower on Tumblr, saw her adorable fanart of a real Canadian policewoman and her bear companion go viral earlier this year.

But after launching an ambitious $80,000 Kickstarter to turn the meme into an animated series, Guillen has come under fire from Tumblr users.

Before she had the username lemonteaflower, Guillen went by the name livethefaggotry. Her Society 6 shop and her Redbubble shop, at which she sells products from the Miss Officer and Mr Truffles project, both still use the old handle in the url.

And artist potentialforart posted to her Tumblr Tuesday to speak out on behalf of artists whom she claimed had been abused, overworked, and underpaid as part of the project.

Donut Day and D-Day: Explained

What does it stand for?

Sort of… nothing? “The terms D-day and H-hour are used for the day and hour on which a combat attack or operation is to be initiated,” says the U.S. Army Center of Military History. “The letters are derived from the words for which they stand.”

So “D-Day” means… Day Day. It’s the day that it all happens.

Why is D-Day on the same day as Donut Day?

It isn’t always! This is just a coincidence. It’ll happen again in a few years. June 6, you see, is not always the first Friday is June. This is a problem that people have been trying to solve for a long time. It has something to do with the Earth tilting on its axis, I think. I’m not really sure. Check Wikipedia if you really care.

What is Friday?
