Green readings and signings: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] — Including Powell's Cedar Hills here in the Portland area, tomorrow night.

SF Signal with a book cover smackdown including my own forthcoming Death of a Starship

1939 World's Fair on San Francisco Bay — Some mighty fine poster art.

American Garage: 1943 — Mmmmm, trains. Now this is some steamy punk.

iPhone Hackers Get a BreakThe difficulty of running nonapproved code on the iPhone has turned off security researchers--until now. Um... Does this count as being unclear on the concept?

At Last, Facing Down Bullies (and Their Enablers) — Gosh, wouldn't that be nice. I grew up in the 1970s, when the response to bullying boiled down to "Well, what did you do to antagonize him?" (Snurched from Scrivener's Error.)

Teaching Children to Spot Terrorists — Um... (Thanks to willyumtx.)

You werent excluded. You lost.The Edge of the American West on conservative rhetoric over the Tiller murder. The right's mealy-mouthed response to that is another place where conservatism show not that it is simply wrong-headed, but intellectually and morally bankrupt.

I grew up in the late 60s-early70s, too, and one of my most vivid childhood memories is of the time my being bullied *finally* got the attention of TPTB in junior high school. I felt like I'd won a war. I'm glad this issue's getting the attention it deserves. Just being backed up by someone in authority can make a huge difference.
