Many people have written lately asking for the best way to get electronic editions of my books and audiobooks, so now's a good time to remind you that I run my own ebook store, where I sell my publishers' electronic editions of my books:

I really dislike the "meat prison" meme? Your body IS part of you, you think with your gut as much as you think with your brain or gonads, so much of who you are outside your hunger and horniness is what has been stuck in the physical memory of your brain. If you recorded your memories differently you would be a different person, if you did not have a sexdrive and you do, you would be a different person, you are the sum of small processecies taking place all over your body, not a trapped mind.

The title is both admirably clear and terribly obscure. You could subtitle it: "Keep arresting brown people."

I want to do a few @librelounge episodes on gender and Free Software.

I'd love to talk to female identifying and or trans folks, especially if you're working on something cool. Please talk to me!

Wordpress is starting to get on my nerves...I don't need most of the crap it piles on...maybe I should just make my own blog software.

I didn't make the connection until I heard it on the Marketplace radio show, but a lot of the world has been living like hikikomori these past months
