The Roddenberry Effect?

SyFy Portal has a story on a book that Eugene W. Roddenberry, son of Gene Roddenberry, is hoping to put together. Roddenberry wants fans to send a photograph and a paragraph of text that in some way demonstrates the "Roddenberry Spirit" in action. It's a kind of strange idea, it seems to me, but if you want more detailed information you can find it at the official Roddenberry website.

In other news, my copy of Wil Wheaton's book, Just a Geek, arrived from Amazon yesterday. It draws on Wheaton's blog, as his previous book, Dancing Barefoot, did, and it recycles a story from Dancing Barefoot, but instead of being a thin trade paperback this one is a fair-sized hardcover. I haven't read it yet, but I have to wonder how many books you can get out of a blog.

(Now playing: Current 93 and HOH, "Passing Horses," Island.)
