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

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...)

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...
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.

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.
