Catherine Schaff-Stump on being a resilient writer panel from Wiscon. Lots of good points in there.
Tobias Buckell points out Science in My Fiction Contest is now open for its second annual run.
Practical tips for writing a book. Haven't read this, yet. But it looked interesting. (can't remember who pointed this out last night, sorry)
The gas miners of Uranus. Wow. I wonder if Lando know about this? The other way to go is that how far are we away from atmosphere scoops (where the ship skims the upper atmosphere of gas giants for its fuel)? (Grokked from Jay Lake)
Well, if they can prove their case, Edwards shouldn't just lose his law license, he should go to jail. In this, the "case" is the money he used was actually campaign money.
