Sci-Ence! Justice Leak!

Linkblogging For 01/10/14

Posted in Uncategorized by Andrew Hickey on October 1, 2014

I’m hoping to get some stuff written tonight for the next couple of days’ posts, but my RSI is playing up badly — my right index finger, and the tendons in both wrists, are aching — so I don’t know how much I’ll be able to write. So have some links in case I don’t finish anything tonight:

A large collection of books on how to become a professional writer, for however much you want to pay. Not all of the writers involved are good writers (though some are), but all make a living out of it, so presumably know at least some of what they’re talking about.

There’s a Kickstarter to turn The Minister Of Chance into a feature film

A project to start a free-as-in-freedom smartphone, app ecosystem, and (coming first) distributed social network. Ambitious, but could be interesting if it works out.

Scott Alexander on ingroups and tolerance

Mark Evanier on why there are no longer Saturday morning cartoons on US network TV

And Tom Ewing on Baby One More Time by Britney Spears

Linkblogging for 27/09/14

Posted in Uncategorized by Andrew Hickey on September 27, 2014

I plan to spend today and tomorrow rewriting the backlog of stuff I lost in the burglary, and get back to a regular posting schedule again tomorrow. My plan is today to rewrite the CalDreaming piece on Good Vibrations and the synopsis for my next novel, tomorrow to rewrite the Cerebus Church And State volumes 1 & 2 posts, and to bash out a short story if I get too constrained by rewriting stuff I’ve already written. That should give me a few days’ backlog again, and then I can get regular posts going. Today, have links:

Markets are the creation of the state

Leonard Pierce on police shootings of black people in the US

Gavin Burrows on Quatermass

A really good, up-to-date, list of fiction markets. Ignore the Comic Sans, this is good…

100 vinyl copies of the White Album playing at once

A review of volume two of William Paterson’s biography of Heinlein, which sounds very much like it has the same strong and weak points as volume one.

Adam as the first mansplainer — a new reading of Paradise Lost

Proper post tomorrow, if I can clear this migraine.

Linkblogging For 18/09/14

Posted in Uncategorized by Andrew Hickey on September 19, 2014

Sorry for the lack of proper content today and yesterday — yesterday I was functioning on only three hours’ sleep, and today I accidentally had a sip of lemonade (which had enough aspartame to give me a mild migraine and a major case of paranoid brain). Proper posts tomorrow and the weekend.

It’s possible that ADHD is both overdiagnosed *and* underdiagnosed

Jack Graham is worried by the opening of For Your Eyes Only

Who Killed Lard?

Nick Barlow on how many political parties actually matter in the UK

Permutation City, possibly the best SF novel ever, is back in print in the US

And microtargeted Facebook ads can be used to violate privacy or to play a trick on your roommate.
