Tourette Syndrome Update

One of the first Ask questions I ever asked was about my Tourette Syndrome. A few different commented or contacted me to say that they'd never seen TS described so accurately before. I recently rewrote and expanded that comment into an article for xojane, and as a result, have been asked to present a keynote speech at the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada's yearly conference in October 2015.

When is it OK to post an update to an open thread?

Apologies if this comes off as test-post-ish, but I am wondering if there are any unwritten guidelines around when it is OK to post an update on the blue, particularly if there was a former post about the subject and that post is still open. [more inside]

Thank you all so much - AskMe update

He's dead, Jim.

To update followers of the Prenda Law porn-trolling copyright lawyers saga, Judge Wright has just issued a catastrophic order [.pdf] imposing sanctions and making criminal referrals, entertainingly littered with Star Trek references.

... and I feel fine.

Hey, remember on the blue last spring when we talked about how Harold Camping's Family Radio Worldwide bought all those billboards last spring announcing the end of the world for May 21? And then when that didn't happen, he disappeared and then later resurfaced to refine his prediction? Well, today was it: October 21, 2011 -- the end of the world. [more inside]

The Edge of reason

Update to this post on Tim Langdell, Mobigames and the Edge trademark: EA Victorious as Court Denies Injunction Against Publisher for 'Edge' Trademark The court has denied Edge Games’ motion for injunction, citing that it believes that Langdell made fraudulent statements to the US Patent and Trademark Office and strongly believes that Langdell is “suspect,” and has been “trolling” the game industry for licensing opportunities. His actions could possibly warrant “criminal penalties.”

With patience, all will be revealed.

Under the flickering torchlight, I saw my quarry: the golden contacts reflecting as they lay against a papyrus scroll from the Library at Alexandria, the dust having not yet covered it completely. "Eureka!" I cried. "All is not lost!" My perilous quest through dust monsters and over yawning chasms and fighting through moldy skeletons had not been in vain. I had reacquired the [more inside]

An empty seat at the Table.

Some of you might remember this post about Talula's Table, the restaurant in Chester County, PA, that has a one-year wait for reservations. Earlier this year, Aimee Olexy and Brian Sikora, the husband and wife team behind Talula's, filed for divorce. Philly food critic Craig LaBan has a bittersweet article about the end of their marriage, and how Aimee and the staff at Talula's are soldiering on.

Where The Wild Things Exhibit

A while ago I did a post on group Where-The-Wild-Things-Are tribute blog Terrible Yellow Eyes. They're now having an exhibition for those lucky enough to live in LA, should you want to see some of the great artworks in person.
