• ABC has ordered at least four episodes of a SF anthology TV series Masters of Science Fiction to air works of well-known SF authors. (Via Big Dumb Object).

  • A variety of authors from around the world plan to mark March 20, the third anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, as the “day of political lies.” (Via Blog of a Bookslut).
  • Google has entered into a pilot project with the National Archives to digitize the video content of the Archives and offer it for free online. Initially, the project features 101 films from the audiovisual collections preserved at the Archives.

    Yes, I know them, they’re quite lame
    I had to rearrange their faces
    And give them all another name
