I’ll Be on NPR’s Talk of the Nation Tomorrow

The headline says it all! I’ll be on at 3:30 Eastern (please adjust for your own time zones) to talk about Redshirts, and, I assume, other stuff as well. Here’s a link to the show’s Web site, in case you don’t have it already. This should be fun.

The New New Phone

Here it is. It’s a RAZR MAXX, which means that I have a phone which is misspelled twice. Nevertheless, since I had the Galaxy Nexus crap out on me, I decided to give this one a shot, primarily because it has a magnificently large battery which means that I might not actually run out of power during the day, which has been a problem with the Nexus (I did like the Nexus overall, but was not impressed with the battery life). The Nexus was under warranty, which means they are shipping a replacement Nexus to my home, but as it happens I really need a phone while I am in San Diego. So I shelled out the cash for this one. Such is the life of a nerd.


Dear Lord, I Do Blather On, Don’t I

Here’s a long interview about Redshirts, humor, screenwriting and other stuff, over at Wired.com.

My Technological Karma Continues its Downward Slide

My phone died last night. The phone which I’ve had, you know, for not very long at all. Now I must away to a Verizon store and get a new one.

This is my way of saying that for the next few hours at least, contact will be intermittent. Best to send me e-mail. My computer is still working.
