Big News – Join Me At A Webinar

webinar_10_2015

OK gang, yes, I know people have asked me to do more than just speak at cons.  Well Lauren Orsini asked me to be part of a webinar and I accepted!  It’s a chance for you to join us and talk . . . careers!  We’re doing a discussion about how people build geek careers realistically, covering seven major steps that you’ll want to follow.

You can read more at Lauren’s blog (which is well worth following), or just go and . . .


Sign up now!

 

It’s free, but seats are limited.  So go on, sign up, and we’ll get a chance to talk careers Sunday, November 8th at 9am Pacific, (12pm Eastern).

And, yes if this works, I may do more with her, on my own, and with other people.  Haven’t tried a webinar before . . .

Update – Sailor Moon Book

The good news is that Bonnie and I are back to the Sailor Moon Book – and making progress.  Work has me a bit busy, and the delay was a bit longer than expected, but we’re getting our groove back.

 

We’re at roughly a halfway point in our interviews, maybe more, and want to take time to analyze the data we have to see what we’ve found so far – it’ll hopefully give us some ideas of book structure and best approach.  Then we’ll get on with more interviews.  And, yes, that’s a hint.

Two things that are unexpected:

  1. We’re seeing some very common patterns, more than we expected.
  2. History of Sailor Moon is recorded very erratically.  It’s scattered among magazines, web articles, a few books, websites, and more.  This means we’ve had to add an extra month to just research things so we get the history right.  You could probably do a whole book on the history of Sailor Moon, but it won’t be us.  Yet.

I hope when this book comes out it inspires some full scientific studies of the series’ impact.  There’s a lot to study.

Steve’s Update

Whew, came off of one busy week at work. So of course I did a bunch of website work.  Yeah, I know.

So what’s going on here is I moved all my MuseHack blogging (and Informotron) blogging over here.  Informotron is purely press work now, and judging by people’s response you prefer it that way.

Now as for what’s up here, my Activities for The Civic geek is going on – that’s an experiment in writing a free ebook a piece at a time.  In this case an ebook that gives you ideas to be a civic geek!  I also hope (time permitting) to bundle up a lot of my old stuff.

I’m also going to be writing more books.  The focus is going to be making stuff that’s a mix of analyzing and of stuff you can apply.

As for mow

  • Way With Worlds.  The second run of editing is a heckuva lot easier.
  • Sailor Moon Book.  We got a plan, I just need to have work interruptions to stop so I can get to it.
  • And the new ebook is  . . . a resume guide to jazzing up your resume!  That’ll be out probably October!  After a break and getting some work on the Sailor Moon book.

 

Also expect to see more of me here now that I’m consolidating blogs
