The clouds actually parted the other day, and I took a photo and put it on Instagram, and other UK Instagram users thought I’d used a filter to make the sky look blue.
Today I am mostly writing five things at once, including the last draft of my Cognitive Cities talk. Thank god it’s the closing keynote, because, I tell you, right around the time I link the whole “digital cities” thing to UFOs and Gary Numan, that room’s going to empty out quick.
I’m also supposed to be writing a foreword for a collection of Carla Speed McNeil‘s FINDER, coming out from Dark Horse. Which I will probably get to tomorrow. Tonight, I need to get down 500 words of introduction to this charity TRANSMETROPOLITAN art book that’s been organised by others to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and the Hero Initiative. Molly Crabapple told me last night that she’s doing studies of Spider Jerusalem‘s evil two-headed cat for it, and twitpicced some warm-ups:
Molly also told me about something else TRANSMET-related that I don’t believe I can pass on yet, but it amused me to no end.
And, yes, FAQ: I have no connection with the charity TRANSMET art book beyond having had my permission asked for it to happen, and my offering to write a foreword for it. I’m sure it’ll be a lovely book. It’s my understanding that CBLDF is handling the PR for it at this point, and… ooh, I just clicked over there, and what did I find:
