For Your Next Deadline

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2008 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I'm happy to provide quotes to reporters and speak publicly about geeky things, so today I joined GeekSpeakr and If I Can Help A Reporter Out. Off the top of my head, I think Rachel, Mel, and Fureigh are great candidates for joining GeekSpeakr and getting asked to give talks at conferences. One of my long-term goals is to regularly send proposals for talks to conferences.

Speaking of being a source, I got quoted extensively in a college newspaper story about politics in Star Trek a while back and forgot to link to it till now. I believe the reporter paraphrased and quoted me accurately until the end, where she has me saying that cyberlibertarians choose the candidate with the most sensible platform. I said that they'd choose the candidate whose platform seemed most rational. I think those are different things.
