Friday Miscellany, April 24

/1/ "The biggest change for the literary world since Gutenberg invented the printing press more than 500 years ago" debuts in London. Anyone use one of these things yet?

/2/ " is the end-all source for all media that NASA currently has to offer. It is, in other words, the mother lode." A great image resource, via Ben Pieratt. Here are the rules.

/3/ New York Magazine has launched the Vulture Reading Room, for which "four or five enthusiastic, creative people (critics, poets, novelists, bloggers)...go to town, in whatever way they see fit, on some inherently fascinating literary object." First up: Charlotte Roche's Wetlands. (Spoiler alert: the consensus is "ewwww.")
