As I said to Rogers on Twitter earlier, how about having Colin show up as a nameless sheriff tracking down a rogue scien^H^H^H^H^Hhacker? It would be worth it just for Hardison's expression when he cracks that database and figures out what Cha0s' day job is. In my head, Leverage and Eureka have always been in the same continuity anyway.

The bite out of the Meep should have been beak-shaped.

"It guess it should be like ripping off a bandage but it's more like a different metaphor that I can't create at the moment; feel free to create your own." It's like a girl that doesn't return your calls after kissing you goodnight at the end of the first date.

Chris Bird had some good points about the drawbacks to this. I particularly agree with #3; if this thing catches on, who's going to stock stuff that I don't know that I want to read for me to flip through in the store? If all my books weren't in storage at the moment, I could come up with a long list of people I never would have read if it hadn't been for a local bookstore. http://mightygodking.com/index.php/2009/04/24/pissing-on-rainbows/

Or more simply: "It's about being an 'us' for once / instead of a 'them'"

Wil, I have no experience with PayPal (because they're evil: http://seclists.org/politech/2003/Feb/0094.html --please find some way other than PayPal to order these, since I refuse to do business with PayPal and want a hardcover) but as a QA person, that snippet doesn't read like they're saying your code is at fault. That reads to me like they're saying "this might be a bug, but we haven't heard of it, so we forwarded it to tier II. They'll get back to you before the heat death of the universe. Maybe." Now, there may be information outside of that snippet that give more credence to this being a problem on your side, but that's not what I get here.

Wil: You might be interested in what some folks are calling Fourth Gen media: work that's bypassing the traditional distribution channels. Trading movies for TV isn't quite the idea, but I think big name creators like Lucas abandoning the cinema might be a symptom. You should check out John Rogers' blog if you're not reading it already; there's an index of the most significant posts here: http://kfmonkey.blogspot.com/2006/08/index-fu-for-august.html Between the show biz info, the politics, and the media theory, I think you'd like it.
