  2. Source: Drop: Minecraft creator's latest game is a typing tutor (or seems like one) Notch, who co-created Minecraft, has new game out that tests your typing skills. My highest score so far is 400.
  3. Yeah, granted. I should have said "narrative" instead. I guess you could argue that holonovels are the descendant of text-adventure games like Zork. Irritating at first. It takes a while to get used to. I've found "Halting State" by Charles Stross to be quite good after that. Yeah, I was just thinking what the transition would be like between the age of holodecks to the alternate 31st Century Archer encountered in the two-parter "Shockwave". From holonovels that had you as the main character to having to regress technologically. Except: Did Daniels ever say whether the destruction of humanity was a gradual process or something much quicker? Either way, the first-person and third- will probably continue to reign since it's not like all of literature got lost in World War III and the Eugenics Wars.
  4. Would second-person prose be the dominant form in the 24th century with the popularity of holonovels?
  5. Pre-order the map here: Quantum Mechanix io9's article/interview with writer Jane Espenson and scientific advisor Kevin Grazier: Detailed Map Of Battlestar Galactica's Twelve Colonies by Charlie Jane Anders I didn't honestly think Ron or David would ever use this info, it'd be distracting as hell to try to explain it, but like your math professor used to say, I included it "for completeness sake". I know that Caprica was going to show us the twelve colonies growing closer together. Would we have dealt with the challenges of having four different stellar systems coming together? Jane: Probably not. This was clearly a stable system, taken for granted by the people who lived there. It doesn't immediately suggest an emotionally-charged story to me. At least we didn't have anything planned along these lines.

  7. According to the official Caprica Facebook page, the "final five" (granted the joke is old) episodes of Caprica will air on Syfy at 6 PM through to 11 PM EST/PST on Tuesday, January 4th, 2011. Here's the Facebook Event page for those interested in attending (and have a Facebook account as well): Facebook | Caprica Season 1.5 - The Final Five Episodes.

  11. Source: CACTUSQUID.com It's fun but at the times frustrating. You'll see what I mean.
