Since more and more of SFWA is built around such electronically mediated networking and connection based venues, and more and more of our membership at least tacitly blesses the webscabs (despite the fact that they are rotting our organization from within) -- given my happily retrograde opinions, I felt I was not the president who would provide SFWAns the "net time" they seemed to want at this point in the organization's development, or who would bless the contraction of our industry toward monopoly, or who would give imprimatur to the downward spiral that is converting the noble calling of Writer into the life of Pixel-stained Technopeasant Wretch. -- Dr. Howard V. Hendrix
Happy Pixel-stained Technopeasant day!
In honor of the day, I will be a shameless webscab and post a Torn World story a bit later here. For Free. Publicly. I'm pretty sure it won't keep you from going out and buying someone else's book or undercut anyone's royalties.
