I was excited to be able to write for Randy Murray’s site, and took the chance to write about writing reviews. Meta, perhaps, but it was a lot of fun. First Today, Then Tomorrow is a great site. If you’re a writer, this should be in your RSS collection.
In July, I launched System Extension, a magazine-like counterpart to 512 Pixels. It’s been a moderate success, but as this is the week for such news, I’m announcing today that I’m putting the project on ice.
