Forum Round-up: Action Dice, WWE, Spycraft 2.0, Atomic Swindlers, Zombies

by Ken Newquist / September 27, 2005

Nuketown's forums have been up since late August, and have been slowly gathering momentum. I'm still experimenting with ways to drive traffic to the forums, including linking to them from some of the articles on the main site, highlighting them in the newsletter and now this: a weekly round-up of notable conversations. I'll be doing one of these round-ups every Tuesday for the next month as an experiment; after that I'll assess how well it worked and adjust accordingly.

by Ken Newquist / March 4, 2005

When I launched Nuketown's latest design in June, I consciously switched it away from an "issue-based" model in which content was published on a set schedule, to a blog-like model, in which content was published when I felt like it.

Nuketown's Libertarian Science Fiction Page Launches

The url of the Web page is:

The impetus behind this page was a speech I gave at a meeting of the Pocono Libertarians a few years back on "Libertarian Themes in Science Fiction." As a life-long science fiction fan, and later a libertarian, the unity of the two subjects always seemed obvious to me. But at that meeting I discovered that many of my fellow libertarian-minded citizens either hadn't heard of the books and movies I was mentioning, or hadn't thought of them in a libertarian light.
