One week from now, I'll be in Los Angeles. I'll have most of a day to kill before my conference, too.

So if you happen to live in Los Angeles, and you want to hang out or come to the conference and, you know, listen to me talk about Year Zero (in ways that literary/cyberculture people might find interesting), please do.

pmogging stuff

Take my freaking awesome new PMOG mission, Reznor Off The Label. (Why not take my three-part Year Zero mission series while you're at it?) What? Not a pmogger? Sounds like you should request an invite from me.

This is the most amazing laptop I've ever seen. The sound holes are truly delightful. I love the video where he turns it on and off. I never actually knew there was such a thing as steampunk before I started pmogging, but it's pretty pervasive there.
