Machine Man

Max Barry, author of the fun books Jennifer Government and Company, is doing a serial fiction experiment called Machine Man. This is probably worth subscribing to.

Barry, a true nerd, also programmed the web game called Nation States, which consumed approximately 10% of my 2003.

Man, Nation States was like Facebook before Facebook. I remember saying at the time: "Yeah, the game kind of gets old after a little while, but it's a really good way to keep in touch with my friends from college."

Nation States was such smart marketing for Jennifer Government (even though I never purchased the book). Yes, a wonderful law school era time suck.
