The Philadelphia weekly newspaper titled, appropriately enough, Philadelphia Weekly, has a special issue this week celebrating local geek culture. Click here for the overview.
I mention it in part because it contains a cut-down version of my Geekadelphia interview. Click here to see that.
But also because it contains a similarly cut-down Geek of the Week interview with my pal, Gardner Dozois. Click here to see that.
Also, editor Stephen Segal saw something I posted on Facebook about genetic computing and asked me to expand upon it. You can read "In a Generation the World Will Be Unrecognizable" here.
But most significantly . . .
Philadelphia Weekly, in cooperation with Geekadelphia and arch-instigator Kyle Cassidy, has launched a campaign to have a historic marker erected in front of the apartment house where Isaac Asimov lived while working at the Naval Yard during WWII. You can read about the kick-off event here.
And you can see the first draft (though it looks pretty good to me) of a video that Brian Siano made of the event here.
And you can sign the petition here.
If you like the idea, sign and share.
