Superstruct! Preview:

What does the world of 2019 look like? Find out now.

The full report from the Global Extinction Awareness System is LIVE -- and you can read it here for the first time anywhere. Find out exactly why the human species may face extinction by the year 2042 – and what we can do about it.

With this report, the Superstruct Story is just beginning. Two weeks from today, on October 6, 2008, we’ll flip the game switch on. Then it’s YOUR turn to tell the story of 2019 – and to help invent the future.

So read the scenario now... and get ready to start superstructing!
(And if you can't wait to start participating, join the Superstruct group on Facebook now. See what players are already talking about and planning for the game...)
I'm getting really excited about this game, it's starting to feel like a huge life changing event and I can't wait to start writing. I've had ideas flowing through my brain-I just need to find some time to write them down. Last night on the way home inspiration struck whilst driving. I tried to find a paper and a pen, but I couldn't (which is probably for the best). So I repeated it over and over again until I had it stuck in my brain. "We tied ourselves to the mast of 20th century technology and bravely sailed into the 21st; we never noticed that the ship was falling apart around us." You can read the rest here on October 6, 2008.

Happy First Birthday Logan!!:

I started this blog shortly after I found out that my wife was pregnant with our little Logo. At the time I was shocked. I didn't feel ready for another child, but another child I had, so I decided to make the most of it.

A year ago my wife gave birth to him at our home. It was a truly amazing experience. Catching my son was one of the most wonderful things that I've ever done in my life. And knowing that I was the first person to touch and hold him is so special to me. I feel that it gave me and Logan a bond that only we share. It kind of saddens me to think that this bond does not exist with most children and their fathers.

Logan is my joyful baby. He's always happy. Sometimes he gets so excited by life that he can't contain himself and the only way he can think to express his joy is with a scream-eyes open hands waving screaming at the pure joys in life. He's taught me a lot about love and happiness and joy-and I am so grateful to have him in my life.

Happy Birthday Logan-I love you.
