PJ Haarsma & "The Softwire"
Original, intelligent and immersive, "The Softwire" is a perfect example of why the young adult novel is so good. I was very fortunate to have lunch with the author of this excellent novel on a sparklingly clear Los Angeles Sunday afternoon.

The 2006 Machinima Film Festival
"The 2006 Machinima Film Festival kicked off on the weekend of November 4th & 5th at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria,
New York. A hundred or so people crowded into the first and third floors of this beautifully designed building (and inside a virtual theater in Second Life where the Festival events were simulcast) for screenings, seminars, awards, displays and discussion of this newest of hybrid digital media forms - Machinima."
