I enjoy your blog, and I really enjoy xkcd. As an educator, however, it is concerning that you post cartoons from xkcd without any attribution to the author. There’s no link to his site (https://xkcd.com/) and even the title of the comic (xkcd) is removed before you post to your site. As I would have taught my students, this is plagiarism and intellectual theft. Please do better.
Just for further information, here’s what the author says about sharing the work on his page (https://xkcd.com/license.html):

This means that you are free to copy and reuse any of my drawings (noncommercially) as long as you tell people where they’re from.
That is, you don’t need my permission to post these pictures on your website (and hotlinking with is fine); just include a link back to this page. Or you can make Livejournal icons from them, but — if possible — put xkcd.com in the comment field. You can use them freely (with some kind of link) in not-for-profit publications, and I’m also okay with people reprinting occasional comics (with clear attribution) in publications like books, blogs, newsletters, and presentations. If you’re not sure whether your use is noncommercial, feel free to email me and ask (if you’re not sure, it’s probably okay).
You’re correct, It’s something I overlooked this time (previous times I did always mention XKCD, and it’s also almost always mentioned on the drawing itself. I’ve corrected it!
