I've been reading the io9 scifi blog since they started, and met contributers Annalee Newitz and Charlie Jane Anders at Comic Con last year (where I taped their interviews with various scfi celebs -- Jewel Staite, why won't you return my calls?), so it fills my heart with joy and squishiness when they link to me, like they did yesterday about the Lone (shooting) Star. Yay! They do post a lot of space info along with the scifi stuff, so it's worth your time to read it. It's in my feed reader and I check it out every day. So should you.
