Tigana on the news again



Tigana was once again interviewed on local news, this time about a school activity. We don't know what Tigana actually said because she has become so blasé about her media exposure that she forgot to mention to us that she was on TV until after the fact, and while Global News does have the clip online (thus the above photo), the sound was wonky for her piece of the clip. Maybe just as well....

CodeOrgan Review

Okay, this is an immensely entertaining time waster... Heard about it this morning on Q so tried it out and it is hilariously intriguing. Basically analyzes any website to produce that page's theme music. I know the algorithm is strictly mathematical analysis of number of letters etc, but it somehow seems to come up with music that fits. My desktop page (just a series of job related links etc that I use daily) gives a horribly boring and mechanical tune; my curricular websites gave appropriately lively and intriguing music; Five River Publishing page gave great book theme music, again entirely appropriate to the tone of the place. Great fun. Try it yourself:CodeOrgan

Interview with Casey Wolf

My interview with SF writer Casey Wolf is up at Strange Horizons today (Feb 9). My title for the piece, "Nice Makes Write", made Casey wince, but otherwise I think it came out okay!
