    Congratulations on the six years.

    I do have one little question, Both of the Mike's mention Second Life in this episode. I'm wondering what exactly they were talking about and if there's any way I can use some of my free SL time to help out in anyway.

  3. Congratulations to the whole team! Keep up the good work and hopefully we will get much more years of Cover to Cover 🙂

  4. the social worker made me show her on a doll where the Dragon Page touched me.

    I only wish I discovered the DP sooner. Everyone, donate when you can to keep the show going.

  5. hi hi

    its cool you been on so long. i learn a lot on here, and it makes me want to read more. I like the library part and you do same as me. I make up my own names when I cant pronouce them either hope you guys are around a looooooooong time.



  6. I think m. stackpole's idea of story-serial might already be happening;
    in amazon, you can already purchase short-stories individually(i was amazed at least)...but the idea of serial-story sales almost seems like it needs a better presentation around the idea...a 'e-pulp' feel with surrounding media attached, like music and art also for sale in same place. My suggestion is that you make a deal with the author that regular stories(at 10-12k word counts) could be released every week...say monday night. Then new readers, could catch up and comment on attached forums quickly.

    Its about the packaging, in the new project.

    (ps. no worries, the next six years...Mike, you'll be a uber-power producer...With summer being your iron-fisted right-hand woman in the pod-empire.)
