Helvetica is 50. Did anyone see the documentary?
The Web Wars have started:

This used to be my favourite subject for sci-fi short stories when I was a teen. Now it's the real world. What do you know?
TwoMorrows Publishing is going to sell digital editions of its excellent line of magazines.
They'll be half the retail price of the print equivalent (about 3 US dollars) which, considering they sell for about a fiver sterling when they hit the UK, is an absolute bargain for anyone over here. The benefits of switching to binary magazines include early availability, colour interiors and a reduced risk of your mum accidentally throwing them into the recycling bin.
As mentioned at the start of this rambling shambles of a post I'll be at Bristol all weekend, hanging out with the usual suspects and looking for work. If you are one of the usual suspects or would like to talk to me about a project I've been reliably informed that I'll be online all weekend thanks to newly installed wireless technology in the main hall, so drop me an email.
If you're there too you might end up in the convention report that I'll be co-writing with Leon Hewitt and Matt Badham for downthetubes.net.
This is what we remember about the 2000AD thirtieth birthday bash the week before last.
