https://twitter.com/Tao23/status/1025087042491957248?s=09 I heartily encourage you, especially creatives but frankly absolutely everyone, to INSTANTLY BLOCK ON SIGHT any individual or organization that posts anything at all like this. Because they're g*dd*mn thieves and sh*tbirds. They deserve nothing but to go out of business in the worst possible way. And I hope the a**holes who came up with this... Continue Reading →
What do we have here? Opportunity for both whale prosperity and human fatness. Check it out: https://twitter.com/Tao23/status/1040671952594190340 I mean, isn't it obvious? Cultured meat has great potential; satisfying people who want to eat endangered animals is only a small, small part of that. I have posted about it here before. And I've written several stories...

https://twitter.com/sabartonwrites/status/902668425876709376 Not today. Probably not this century. In the next, I'd be shocked if it didn't start happening. Outdoor farms in their sprawling plant-filled glory will one day be extinct in most "developed" countries and will be a marker of terrible, desperate poverty. There are already experiments in urban and/or indoor farming. Experiments and practical... Continue Reading →
https://twitter.com/Tao23/status/988530962979065860 I mean, seriously. How ignorant and/or priggish do you have to be? Also, sweet potato pie is almost as regional as jambalaya. Maybe this isn't about "froo-froo" food, but about Erick's prejudices and his desire to pronounce anything that isn't familiar and comforting to him "wrong." What a cringing prick.
https://twitter.com/sabartonwrites/status/983217955101204482 Bank on it: we will set the door to let deliveries in. You think people order a lot of stuff online now? The trend is upward, the Gen-Xers and Boomers who didn't grow up ordering stuff online and who are as likely to reject online shopping as to embrace it, are either croaking or following...

Luddites are both annoying and fascinating. They have the corner of a legitimate argument: technology has the potential to f**k us up royally. Yes, yes it does. I'm a Cold War kid. I remember watching The Day After. I read (and sometimes write) dystopias. I'm a friggin' science fiction fan and writer, fer... Continue Reading →
This is a little bit especially for people in the early days of their sending-their-writing-to-total-strangers-and-asking-them-to-publish-it careers. Which is daunting. It was for me. It was every time I did it, and so far I've chalked up around 200 rejections for 4 acceptances, only two of which are still in print (in the sci-fi world, small... Continue Reading →
