  • A la Cart: The Secret Lives of Grocey Shoppers – A book by Hilary Carlip about discarded shopping lists. Based on 26 lists she’s found, she creates and imagines the people who would have written them and turns herself into those characters. Take a look at the flash intro; it explains it all.
  • We Tell Stories – Six authors, six stories, six weeks. For the next six weeks, stories will come out, each with a different unique method of presentation. This week’s The 21 Steps, for instance, uses Google Maps.
  • By Ken Levine: If a major studio gave notes on JUNO – What if the screenplay of Juno had landed in the hands of a major Hollywood studio? Can you imagine what the demands of the studio would have been? How the story would have been rewritten?
  • Interview: David Hewlett – Great interview with Hewlett who plays Dr. Rodney McKay in Stargate: Atlantis. It’s cool to see how much of a geek he is himself.
