Lots of Linkage

It has been one of those busy days online, and as I’m getting ready to head off to Finncon I am being lazy and just linking:

– Jennifer Ouellette sums up a week of controversy in the science blogging field. While I share her dislike of “advertoiral”, I also agree wholeheartedly with her view that people should be allowed to earn a reasonable fee for writing blogs.

– Guangyi Li asks, “What does China imagine?”.

– Another great podcast from Jonathan Strahan and Gary K. Wolfe, this time with added Elizabeth Hand and Peter Straub.

– Graham Sleight posts as fascinating talk about how literature works that he gave at ReaderCon.
