I guess we'll never know now.

Recently learned of Mac Tonnies' death. Well, shit. He taught me to blog - or at least, told me how not to. He had a vision, more than anyone I've encountered thus far, of the way the web and the world is supposed to be. He was a writer both intelligent and entertaining, thoughtful and skewed. His greatest legacy will, I imagine, be The Cryptoterrestrials, a treatise on the possibilities of alien life from a perspective precious few have considered. Hopefully, it'll still get published and oviposit seeds of inspiration and weird post-insectile ideation in the minds of readers everywhere.
