"For some time after Tony Scott tragically, mysteriously took his life
earlier this year we tried to think of some way to honor his work and explore it on the Notebook. A proper response was found by filmmaker, editor and Notebook contributor Gina Telaroli, who suggested a kind of critical exquisite corpse
, and in this manner forge a way—or an attempt—to fit the forms of Tony Scott's oeuvre to the content critics would contribute."

(PDF) is a 94 page graphic novel full of body horror, nightmare fuel, and heavy handed symbolism. It tells the story of an Akira-like organism that grows and devours the Earth. Drawn on notepaper with lots of red crayons and purportedly written by a Something Awful Goon when he was in 6th grade, Bio Apocalypse has gathered a small cult following and his inspired a partial video reading.

In what might be every blogger's dream come true, a brand has acquired an established blog devoted to that brand: in this case, cult notebook/journal manufacturer Moleskine
has purchased the four-year-old fan blog Moleskinerie
. But what will it mean for content - will critical posts
become a thing of the past?

Computers get cheap.
While Microsoft has seen fit to require a whole new generation of computers to run its latest operating system
, a number of manufacturers have started the creation of cheap notebook computers. The list includes the infamous Palm Foleo
, mentioned here previously, and the OLPC
, mentioned pretty much everywhere previously. But also coming soon is the Asus EEE
, a $200-300 notebook running Linux. And Intel's alternative to the OLPC
, the Classmate PC
. Even as the low cost alternatives to standard computer start to come on sale, the prices for traditional laptops dip ever
lower. Can the digital divide
, at least hardware wise, be consigned to the dustbin of history?
