  2. Excerpt: Number One on Primo’s  • 
    Chapter 1 Natch was impatient. He strode around the room with hands clasped behind his back and head bowed forward, like a crazed robot stuck on infinite loop. Around and around, back and forth, from the couch to the door to the window, and then back again. Behind him, the window was tuned to some […]

  4. How to Help Promote Your Favorite Author  • 
    We often latch on to the authors we love. We realize this is a tough business, and we don’t want them to starve. We want them fat and happy, sitting on cushions stuffed with hundred dollar bills.

  8. Take Control of Your Information! (Part 1)  • 
    I started a post last week about the future of web content, and the problems of content distribution in web 2.0, and why we should all adopt open standards to structure everything we write on the Internet. The piece got much too long, so I split it into three parts. Here’s part 1. *** Remember […]
  9. Free Tech Tools Worth Blogging About  • 
    It’s phenomenal how much free software is out there on the web for the taking. I, for one, definitely take it for granted.
