Linkblogging For 01/10/14

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
