Let me give a quick shout-out to one of my friends here. Over at Alternative Dreams, one of my best real-world friends has a blog going about various topics that interest her — and they’re really, really interesting topics. There’s not a lot there yet (poke poke), but it promises to be really interesting. So far she’s mostly talked about aquaponics, which is pretty nifty stuff (and immediately applicable to Derelict, which is nice), but there’s also a video on crafting bead-and-wire spiders. And did I mention she’s got a job in the local university’s nanotech lab, despite being an undergrad? Seriously, go have a look.
