I Love Paperback Sci-Fi

09-Jan-08

The other day I picked up Sun of Suns: Book One of Virga by Karl Schroeder. It’s good, really good. It’s sort of a Flash Gordon meets Victorian England/Steampunk in a no gravity bubble. This is really beside the point though. What I really wanted to talk about is my love of the Mass Market […]

I Have Senioritis…

28-Nov-07

I go to work every day and I work hard. I come home and I take care of my kids and help my wife with all the housework and stuff. After the kids are put to bed and the house is cleaned up I am supposed to do my work for my graduate class. I […]

Rios the Librarian

01-Oct-07

1 A couple of days ago our car was broken into. I wasn’t even sure what happened at first until I got into the car and took a look around. When I opened the door my first thought was “my wife really left the car messy” (she usually uses it). I climbed into the car […]

Ethics and Video Games…

21-Jul-07

What Are My Boundaries of Disclosure?

08-Jul-07

Over at Information Wants To Be Free Meredith has an interesting post up about The Boundaries of Disclosure. It stems from another blog post that gets a little personal. I’ve been thinking about what I will say and won’t say on this blog and I’ve decided that I’m going to treat it like a conversation. […]
