Useful to find basic episodes guides for lots of tv series.

Funny TiVo Strip
And oh-so-true.

Salon has an interesting article about decentralized systems
and then how it applies to terrorist networks and cities. Emergence sounds like an interesting book.

I think it also applies a lot to science fiction fandoms as well -- especially in the internet era, since so much of the work on any big project is actually relatively decentralized. And I noticed when I was down at Chicago TARDIS last weekend that more recent clubs are less conventionally organized than older ones -- the Chronicles of Who just have their regularly scheduled meetings, but don't have membership dues or a lot of organizational overhead. Same with the Iowa fan group and the Minnesota Doctor Who Viewing Society. But older groups like the CIA in St Louis have a greater level of conventional organization to them.

And I don't think this has to do with the fact that Doctor Who is less popular now than it was when the CIA was founded -- I don't see that new fan groups around the current batch of series are organizing themselves in the same way clubs did fifteen or so years ago.

The Big Idea By Robert Wright
Something that I think is very true these days -- how the world is more and more interconnected, and while there are good things about this, there are also bad things. (And Osama's role in these things...)

Anthony Stewart Head is going to be the villain in a series of upcoming Big Finish Doctor Who audios. Cool!


PvP - Player Versus Player is doing a lot of cartoons about the greatest invention of our times, TiVo.

Lawrence Miles' Faction Paradox site
Lawrence Miles has written several Doctor Who novels. He's got some audios coming out that tie into his Faction Paradox creation from those books...


DNA/HHGG Infocom Adventure
Oh my -- there was a time in my life where I was totally addicted to the old Infocom text adventure game for Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. And here it is, online.

Has lots of clips for next week's episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Which is going to run eight minutes long, so set your VCRs and TiVos appropriately.


Political ad is uniformly embarrassing -- The Washington Times

TheForce.Net's Episode II - News
Says that Channel 9 (KMSP) will be airing the trailer for Star Wars: Episode 2 on Monday during their 9:00 PM news program, if you want to record it or anything crazy like that.


The official Buffy the Vampire Slayer site has some preview material for next week's musical episode. Something to look forward to, I think. Especially with Anthony Stewart Head's background in Musical Theater as well. It's going to run long, apparently, so make sure you set your TiVos and VCRs to go beyond just the one hour. (Which will make watching Smallville difficult.)
