  • Commented on Service update
    Greg@17: While I didn't get to the "Ruling Party" panel, the transcript doesn't support your claim that the Green panelist took any criticism personally. In addition, your use of the egregious and inappropriate dog-whistle "watermelon" against someone I have known...
  • Commented on "The next big thing"
    "Hopefully ubiquitous surveillance and paranoia about the global security regime will still be a hot topic two years after the Edward Snowden story broke: otherwise, I'm stuffed." I think you'll be on safer grounds than all the MilSF authors in...

  • Commented on Over-Extended Metaphor for the day
    What, no love for the Appalacian snake-handlers of OS/2 Warp? Didn't think so......
  • Commented on Monarchy versus the Panopticon
    Swarms of small autonomous drones with biometric recognition (face, height, build, gait). And for his sake, hope they're only programmed to phone home to TheTimesOfLondon.com/uk rather than deliver a small, lethal payload. Expect the royal palaces and other places to...
  • Commented on Changing my mind on nuclear disarmament

  • Commented on Things publishers can't do (yet)
    Bellinghman@ 15, Charlie @16: "Harry, every paperback you've bought new in the past 20 years is a trade paperback. The size (A-format) is the same as the old mass-market books but they're distributed on sale-or-return, i.e. as trade paperbacks." Yeah,...

  • Commented on What are the big issues of 2013 going to be?
    I very much fear we're going to see state-organised violence against LGBT people in at least one country this year, and possibly more....
  • Commented on National Talk About Something Else Day
    I'm taking a tea break after having to run up a 15-minute P*werP*int presentation, which I must give in person, half-way across the country tomorrow. Then I'll book some very expensive train tickets because there's no such thing as an...
