Open the Future: #War
"What's the hashtag for terror? For propaganda? I've been talking about the role of social media as a possible enabler of political violence for years. In my June 2009 talk at Mobile Monday in Amsterdam, I argued that Twitter and similar media had the potential to serve a role similar to the radio stations used to drive the 1990s Rwandan genocide.

The Many Worlds of Molly Crabapple - Comic Book Resources
"Someday I hope to be able to work on "The Puppet Makers" again, but for the next few years DC has the rights the story, and they've given no indication they want to do anything with it.

Filthy Gorgeous Things | Commerce | Introduction/Boston: An excerpt from w4m
"Prostitution is not your wife in her Christmas scarf announcing that she’s going to the bathroom and will you stay behind and keep an eye on things. It is not the food court. It is not your kid’s high school graduation in the same town you grew up in and your son’s new girlfriend just looking at you, waiting. Prostitution is not obligation. It is not being alone. It is the same hotel, over and over. It’s the virtue and luck and money that brings you to its doors, holds you within rooms without end. It is this patch of carpet without any blood on it, where they found her, where I stand."
