Not everyone has been offline over the holiday weekend. Jeff VanderMeer has been busy. In particular he posted this thoughtful essay on behavior on the Internet. I’m not sure that he’s right that passive-aggressive behavior doesn’t work online, though I’d be very happy if he is. The rest of it I find myself nodding in agreement with. Good advice.
Jeff has also been talking about one of my favorite SF books, M. John Harrison’s Light. The passage that he highlights struck me a very clever too, and it certainly does have ramifications way beyond FtL travel.
