Why I love google
Or, rather, just 1 of the many reasons: Pigeon Rank!. I saw this a while ago, but was recently reminded of it by Making Light (where there have been a number of great posts and discussions lately, by the way-- par for the course with that blog, certainly)-- see for example On Writing Genre Fantasy.

Okay, and I'll admit a love of Amazon too
The new ability to search through the pages of 120,000 books at Amazon is quite exciting. I haven't had a chance to really play with it much yet. But I have no doubt whatsoever that it's going to come in handy quite often. I know there are many reasons why I shouldn't love Amazon. But they keep on doing things like this . . .

Oh, and hello!
So, it's been an absurd amount of time since I last posted. I'm hopefully getting back in the habit now.
