Is that debris on the lens, or in space and time?

Posting this from the pub before I forget: Over the last day or so, you'll have seen hits from Technorati appear as posts within the blog. This was an experiment in building automatic content into the site, as arranged by Mr William Gray of the Meltdowns. Taking a look at it this morning, I decided the Technorati hits were swamping out the rest of the content. So in a little while Billy's going to deselect that feed, and they'll all go away. It was a good and useful experiment, but it was clearly affecting readability. We may add some other stuff in over the next few days. ___ Sent with SnapperMail www.snappermail.com

It has been brought to my attention that one chapter of my 1997-2002 serial TRANSMETROPOLITAN has been placed online. Since it’s one chapter out of sixty, and no-one’s trying to earn money off it, and I am
lazy benign, I choose not to release the throatfucking hounds of hell upon the criminal Internets pirate responsible.
Instead, I offer it to you to read, and tell you that the story can be found in the collection TRANSMETROPOLITAN: LUST FOR LIFE, available from Amazon and all better comics stores and bookstores.
(And, yes, in doing this I’m well aware that I may blast the poor guy’s image hosting to bits. Ah, well.)

The law would be largely symbolic since Japan has already launched spy satellites, but is meant to ease concerns about building high-end satellites and to help the space program become more internationally competitive…

…here is what I’ve been working terribly too late into the night on for the past few months:
Sex Worker Visions is an art exhibition, gathering of sex workers and their allies, a celebration of $pread magazineâ€™s first birthday and a collaboration with Sex Work Matters. Featuring visual art by and about people in the sex industry, curated by Audacia Ray, executive editor of $pread and former assistant curator of the Museum of Sex. Artists include Anne Hanavan, Charise Isis, Cristy Road, Fly, Heather Corinna, Molly Crabapple, Paul Sarkis and George Pitts. The opening will also feature book signings by Tracy Quan and Scarlot Harlot.
(Yes, Ana, Echo, and I — actually together like this for the first time!)

Sex Work Matters: Beyond Divides
At 10:45a (EST), join us at the New School, or online via live webcast, for the sure-to-be-controversial roundtable that Audacia Ray and I are co-moderating, “Managing Multiple Roles: Sex Workers, Activists, Artists, and Academics.” We’ll be joined by my boa: new whore culture editor Jessica Melusine, Elizabeth Nanas, Robyn Few, and Scarlot Harlot.
(I’m myself a little beyond over this happening, as it was spawned in this here blog a few months back.)
