Science for Science Fiction

Back in November, the National Academies announced the formation of a new group to promote the use of accurate science in science fiction productions, focusing primarily on Movies and TV. The Science and Entertainment Exchange came out of the starting gate strong, with Watchmen leading the pack. A serious voice for both the acting community […]

SF Tweets

SciFi Wire has released a list of SciFi Folks who Tweet, and a great list it is. I was already following Neil Gaiman, but didn’t know John Scalzi was in there as well. Likewise I was following Wil Wheaton and never knew Robert Llewellyn was tweeting away. There are a lot more on the list […]
