Review: eastern standard tribe by Cory Doctorow

By Q-Bert - Posted on 15 April 2008

Yes, the title is lower-case.

This is my first novel-length story from Cory, a good 'ol canuck. The story follows Art Berry, an EST-born dude living in the GMT timezone. The major premise of the story is that Art feels loyalty to his EST timezone and works as an agent-provocateur by working for an England firm and introducing complexity into projects given to him in order to sabotage them. This way, he gets the GMT-based company in hot water, and makes EST-based companies look better in comparison. Read more

HerdOfCats, the new Slashdot ?

By Q-Bert - Posted on 09 April 2008

Blackwalt, how I hate thee...

By Q-Bert - Posted on 30 December 2007

And not my regular constant seething hate, but a more poignant, musical hate. And this occurred to me at 6am this morning.

Gabba: "I don't know how to plug in the microphone, go and wake up daddy..."

Bouzie: "'K!" bom bom bom bom
Bouzie: "Daddy! Wake up!"
Me: "Mhhhrrmh ?"
Bouzie: "Wake up!"
Me: "Why ?"
Bouzie: "Wake up!"

Yes, love was in the air this morning...
