Surprisingly enough, the Singularity didn’t start with the internet. It started with an amputee. This is the tale of two Dacks, one a human, the other an accidentally formed artificial intelligence – though it doesn’t think that its intelligence is all that artificial. To prove it, the computer version of Dack will…
My job went away a few months back and am working towards finding another one. Still it’s the season of giving, so I wanted to share something; all I have is this little kinda-corny ebook I published on amazon, so I thought “Hell, I can give it away - someone might enjoy it...” Here ya go - free for the next few…
Just a little FYI/ heads up. I’m hoping to get enough sales that my wife will be ok with me actually writing a sequel...
Just finished the cover... now all I have to do is hit the button to actually publish.

I think that any person should be…
In Fear no Evil, Robert Heinlein gave us six genders -a revolutionary concept, even in the 70's. Well, Facebook just went and left him in the dust: they've introduced a potential 50 (yes'm... er sir... er... cis...er whatever: FIFTY) genders. Granted this is only for US accounts, but it is still an important step in…
Just sent this in as a tip... but it needs to be out there. I know this was glossed over in Morning Spoilers, but this is a huge deal. There are conflicting reports about best friend/love interest ( http://m.hollywoodreporter.com/entry/view/id/…) but it's a huge - positive - deal to change the ethnicity of a fairly…
My son wants a giant Snorlax (a Pokemon thing) for Christmas. I looked around and could only find small versions, unless I wanted to dish out a couple hundred bucks. I told him that there were only small Snorlaxes (Snorlaxi?) around, and he said: "Papa, don't worry, Santa can make one."
Omygodohmygodohmygod... one of the best comics in the past few years has been picked up by the CW: iZombie

My Tumblr alerted my to a most interesting phenomena today: The World's First Commercially Available Cyborg. Apparently, it's a cockroach.
Dads made it, but not this? We are Men made it, but not this? SUPER FUCKING FUN NIGHT made it, but not this.
