Asteroid Sighting

Asteroid shooting across skyThe Aster­oid Belt Almanac cel­e­brat­ed its launch yes­ter­day, at a great event put togeth­er by the pub­lish­ers, The Head & the Hand Press. Great venue too — Indy Hall, a loft-style co-work­ing space in Old City Philadel­phia for tech work­ers, star­tups and oth­er cre­ative folks.

I’m so hap­py to be part of this for­ward-think­ing project. This beau­ti­ful lit­tle Almanac re-imag­ines Ben­jamin Franklin’s icon­ic for­mat, bring­ing togeth­er con­trib­u­tors who share an inter­est in the inter­sec­tion of tech­nol­o­gy and sci­ence with our lives today. There are essays (includ­ing mine), a graph­ic nov­el script, some actu­al sci­ence fic­tion, art and more. In a nod to the old almanac form, this one even includes a guide to 2014 mete­or show­ers, and a Weath­er Glos­sary — but this one’s geared toward cli­mate change lit­er­a­cy. (Do you know what anvil zits are?) Real­ly, it’s a must have!

You can order the Aster­oid Belt Almanac direct from The Head & the Hand, or from Ama­zon.

  1. Nice! I saw the announce­ment but didn’t know you were in this, or at least for­got! Con­grat­u­la­tions and may the aster­oids pass close, but not too. 

    Hope you’re doing well 

    John
