You Don't Need an iPod

Just remembered this from back in 2006, something that some of y'all might not be aware of.  Educational music video from a group called Uncle Seth.  Wonder if they're still around?

And the full tune at the end, "It's a Beautiful Day" from Natalie Brown's "Random Thoughts" album

End of Swinging Doors

The nice folks who were allowing me to produce a serialized audio version of "Swinging Doors," changed their minds.  They're concerned that it interferes with their copyright.  I grant you that offering a free audio version to promote the print & Kindle versions is a hard concept to get your head around for many people, though it has been known to work rather well. 

But it's their book, their copyright.  So every episode of Hiber-Nation from Episode 128 forward has been taken down.  If you want to read the book, the paper version is available from, and the Kindle version is available on Amazon.  It's still worth reading, the ending is exciting.

It'll be a while till I come up with another book to record.  Thanks for listening, while it lasted.

Gripping Hand

Here's one for you Facebook users who are also fans of "The Mote in God's Eye" and the followups.

On the one hand, Facebook did psychological experimentation on their users, possibly including you.  And people who do that sort of experimentation by scientific standards say Facebook didn't do the experiments ethically, not sufficiently providing notice or seeking permission.  So you might consider leaving Facebook in disgust...

On the other hand, your Mom is on Facebook, and is not the sort to puzzle her way through some other venue, so you kinda have to stay.

Gripping hand.

Facebook did psychological experiments on your Mom.
