  • Commented on Dread of Heinleinism
    At least most people don't end up writing tributes to the, uh, very interesting sexuality found in RAH's later books. They all blur together into one big blob of "Papa spank!" in my memory. It was *really interesting* being a...
  • Commented on Cthulhu Counterfactual
    Considering the Mi-Go as a faction of the Culture is kind of breaking my brain right now. I think I'm going to have to roll that one around in the back of my head for a while, though, given that...
  • Commented on Why I barely read SF these days
    This is a good rant. Thank you. I feel like I want to spend a half a day writing a complex response on my own blog. But right now I am sitting with my phone waiting for breakfast. Not the...
  • Commented on Dude, you broke the future!
    We made a fundamentally flawed, terrible design decision back in 1995, that has damaged democratic political processes, crippled our ability to truly understand the world around us, and led to the angry upheavals of the present decade. That mistake was...
  • Commented on Unforeseen Consequences and that 1929 vibe
    > Last night I tweeted an intemperate opinion [...] that we need to ban Bitcoin because it's fucking our carbon emissions. I was having pretty much the exact same thoughts yesterday. Stop thinking with my brain, Charlie, I'm using it...
  • Commented on Clickbait spasm: 14 gizmos I used in 2015
    Gizmos I have enjoyed having in 2015: * A sunshade for my laptop, made out of some black illustration board, some tape, and some magnets so it can hang off the ones embedded in my Air's lid. I tried some...
  • Commented on Quiet in here, isn't it?
    In the Laundry Files I accidentally stumbled into a really smart decision early in the game by explicitly declaring that Bob is an unreliable narrator [...] Unreliable narrators are THE BEST. They let you play fun games with characters clearly...
  • Commented on Second childhood?
    wait did you just include Rita on your Totally Not A Hugo Graphic Novel Nomination list AAAAAHHHHHH THANK YOUUUUUUUU *runs around screaming in delight* K6BD is fucking amazing and insane and I love it. Nevertheless, I think these may not...
  • Commented on What's The Best Medium For A Storyteller In 2015 And Beyond?
    I am going to respectfully disagree with your thesis that Patreon is really just a way for Big Content to steal ideas. While there are some people using Patreon to create a paywall for their content, I use it to...
  • Commented on What's The Best Medium For A Storyteller In 2015 And Beyond?
    It was not intended as a cue for a product endorsement but I will gladly take one. Thanks! I probably now owe you a beer when we're at the same con....
  • Commented on What's The Best Medium For A Storyteller In 2015 And Beyond?
    Yeah, I had a couple comments in that HN thread. And the cheapness of comics is part of why I'm doing them! I used to work in animation, but gave up because I didn't want to spend several years claw...
  • Commented on What's The Best Medium For A Storyteller In 2015 And Beyond?
    Doing comics on the web is fun. I just want to note that, as a rule, you are not going to be Homestuck. That is a combination of a lot of hard work for several years and no small amount...
  • Commented on An age-old question
    I'm now 43. I should think about this more. I should also go re-read Holy Fire and see what it says to me now. I do enjoy the 'whatever' that comes with age; there's a lot of things I'm just...
