Everything Is Nice

Beating the nice nice nice thing to death (with fluffy pillows)

Better Recognise

Thankfully the Locus round table is now over. In the conciliatory manner typical of Locus editorial staff Liza Groen Trombi says:

While most have welcomed the blog and the launch discussion, we have clearly annoyed a few people by not conforming to their ideas of what we ought to be doing.

The complaints I’ve seen are that the blog is boring and it takes seven hours for comments to appear but well done to Locus for striking a blow against conformity. Anyway, with the round table finished the blog proper can begin, starting with this article by Graham Sleight on advocacy and recognition SF. Stay tuned for his inevitable post about hedgehog and fox SF.

  2. Also, you complain about moderation on the Locus blog; I submit a comment on your blog (without links or any other spam-centric stuff) and get the message that “Your comment is awaiting moderation”…

  3. Note slight difference in time taken to approve… Plus I am as good as my word and even suggested this as a solution to Locus.

  5. I don’t have to comment on every post! Besides, I said my piece on advocacy/recognition in 2007 and I know nothing MFAs.

    Been there, done that. :-p

    Is it online though? (Computer says no.)
