A little bird told me ….

July 18, 2011

Good news from our friend Mr. Decker:

Edwin Decker starts the rumor-mill for his forthcoming anthology.

Unfortunately, the comma is included with the hyperlink in that one, so it doesn’t go through. That’s okay, though. Anyone interested in Puna Press, or in bugging them about release dates for Bartender in Heat: The Anthology (can you work an orgy joke into the title?) can just click on the link in this sentence.

Or follow his ramblings on Twitter.

Or Facebook.

Ye gads and huckleberries. I need to catch up on this social networking thing. Hell, I thought the internet was still a series of interconnected tubes.

Never mind. Just make good with Decker, so he’ll remember you when he gets invited on Rachel Maddow‘s show to discuss cocktails.

And, yes. I know the title of this post sucks. It’s supposed to; I’m a sucker for bad jokes.

Meet the man, be the media

David Mathison will join us at SD24. And with all things publishing 3.0 overwhelming writers everywhere in their effort to understand and “establish a platform” by feeding their tweets, increasing their Facebook & Friendster followers, blogging relentlessly, podcasting incessantly, post-baiting ad nauseam, and, somewhere in between, among and around all this time-suck devoted to promoting their work actually write books, who better to address the issues. An internationally recognized media consultant, publisher, radio host, hi-tech entrepreneur, and former vice president with Reuters — the world’s largest news agency — where he pioneered online content syndication, after more than 25 years experience in content distribution, David’s new book, Be The Media, provides an encyclopedic volume of information, online strategies and tactics every author needs to know to succeed. As Friday night’s special guest speaker, you’ll want to take notes.



Why we should never joke about Twitter

December 22, 2009

Let us pause, for a moment, to consider the wisdom we might glean from Twitter. Or, as Mark Sample puts it:

The new 7th edition of the MLA Handbook *still* does not know how to cite videogames.

No, really, that’s actually someone’s real tweet. But here’s the thing: It’s not crazy. One of my favorite dialogues on freedom takes place between a nano-enhanced supercop and a black Australian bartender named Isaac at a Triad-operated nightclub in Hong Kong amid a nanotechnological plague, in the video game Deux Ex.
