So evidently, these are the top hundred books from the BBC (via chaiya). Bold ones are the ones I've read; I count 73/100, but now I've got some tasty new ideas for my reading list. Not that I'm sure what the criteria are - who in hell is Jacqueline Wilson, why do the Harry Potter books get individual listings while Pullman and Tolkien (Tolkien!) don't, and where did anyone get the idea that it's necessary to read more than one Terry Pratchett book?
Bloody hell. I seem to have procrastinated myself into a situation where I don't know whether I'm going to get my ISEA proposal in. I've actually got two projects I could talk about - the whole interactive narrative deal and (more closely related to the conference themes) a discussion of using wireless technology to support real-world social networks - but I have to find the time to write the proposal.
It doesn't help that I'm halfway into a no-time-no-time-no-time panic mode: I'm trying to figure out when I'll have time to prepare my new class for the spring, write my book chapter, deal with conference applications and - here's the kicker - figure out if I'm going back to school next fall.
That's "Request for Techie," if anyone cares. Anyone out there good with low-level Win32 programming? I've got a project I want to discuss which doesn't pay, but will probably get us some free travel to fun and far-away places.
