If you enjoyed RE: Your Brains, and didn't expend the effort to see what the latest ol' Jonathan Coulton has done is, I urge you to take a second and check out Code Monkey as well. There're no zombies, but monkeys who program are just as good.
I'll try to refrain from turning this into the "look at what Jonathan Coulton did now!!!1" blog, but I can't make any promises.
I was pretty certain that you'd dig that one, and that's part of what won out on my mental Hamlet debate ('to post or not to post?').
If you aren't aware, Mr. Coulton has started trying to make his living entertaining people, and Thing A Week is his constant ouput stream.
Apparently now he has it set up so that people who want to support what he's trying to do can buy a 'subscription' via paypal to access the files that they aleady could be accessing or podcasting for free anyway. Now I'm not one who pays for content if he can help it, but if I'm gonna, it's darn well going to be in a scenario like this one; the payment isn't required to access the media, and whether I pay for it or not I can do whatever the hell I want with it.
Mr. Coulton is a huuuuge Creative Commons guy, and that makes me smile. He truly is putting his money where my mouth is, so I think I'm going to be sending him off some of my money as well.
The author lives in Vancouver, Washington, USA with his girlfriend and a menagerie of cats, rats, fish, birds, guinea pigs and robots.
Among other inanities, he strives to use investigative techniques to work young starlet breasts into every aspect of rational discourse -- focusing on the discourse, thus making it not perverted. Also, has recently begun a career as "Internet hairstylist."
He can be contacted via email and Jabber IM at 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. He likes to be contacted.
(All press inquiries, however, ought be directed towards the author's agent, Alistair Hoel, via email to email@example.com.)
