I have a dozen pieces in this fabulous book, compiled by former TDIT editor Randy Alfred. Randy did a great job of editing the pieces down, and with good reason: 366 entries, even if they are all one page each, already makes for a pretty hefty book. And many of the columns were at least a couple of "pages" long
But because writing amounts to showing off, and writers grow rather fond of what they've written, I'm providing links to the original versions of my TDIT pieces on Wired.com.
But do buy the book — I make nothing from it, and even had to buy a copy for myself. Available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other online book stores.
