More TKE and random stuff

I was very honored and pleased by new Dashner Dude Favorite Jenn Northington's writeup on our event at The King's English. Check it out: CLICK HERE.

By the way, I forgot to mention that Trent Nelson from the SL Tribune (Chief Photographer) was there with his family, too. He's my new pal and his boys are awesome.

You can read my account in the post before this one.

I'll be sure to report on the Storymaker's Conference this weekend.

I'm still trying to recover from my beloved Georgia Bulldogs blowing their lead against Xavier today. Here's a heads up for all you budding basketball players: don't try to dribble through a frickin' double team!!!!!!!

For you American Idol watchers: when did Elliott Yamine turn into the Wolfman? Nah, that was a sweet story. The 13th Reality Charity Drive money will be going to the same charity group behind American Idol Gives Back, which is just amazingly awesome in case you're wondering. Whether you love the show or hate it.

I just finished reading "The 13th Reality." It was amazing. When is "Hunt for the Dark Infinity" coming out. I can't wait.

Sounds like a load of fun. I LOVE TKE, it's just so... bookish.

Hey James, I wanted to ask you-- I know you've been busy, and that's totally fine, but I just wanted to confirm that you got my e-mail; or did the rambunctuous internet goblins steal another one? It's been known to happen.

Brian, thanks dude! "Amazing" sounds very good - I'm glad you liked it.

The Hunt for Dark Infinity comes out in March 2009. At least it's less than a year, right? None of this 3 year wait stuff. :-)

Enna, yes, I did get your interview questions. Sorry I didn't at least let you know that. I promise I will get to them in the next 3 or 4 days - I didn't want to rush it. Thanks for your patience and for the interview!

Enna Isilee said...

No worries! Thanks for doing it! Take your time.

James, I put a shameless plug for your books on my blog.

Hate the show, James. HATE THE SHOW.

I think I'm agreeing with Clint here, actually ...uuh, what show again?

What up, Clint? You Rock!

Aside from the complex physical connections that make up its infrastructure, the Internet is facilitated by bi- or multi-lateral commercial contracts (e.g., peering agreements), and by technical specifications or protocols that describe how to exchange data over the network. Indeed, the Internet is essentially defined by its interconnections and routing policies.

As of December 30, 2007, 1.319 billion people use the Internet according to Internet World Stats. Writing in the Harvard International Review, philosopher N.J. Slabbert, a writer on policy issues for the Washington, D.C.–based Urban Land Institute, has asserted that the Internet is fast becoming a basic feature of global civilization, so that what has traditionally been called "civil society" is now becoming identical with information technology society as defined by Internet use. - web design company, web designer, web design india
