My Apres Garde blog was mentioned in an Italian news article about Arcade Fire’s video project involving Google Street View. It was also mentioned on a Swiss site called 20 Minutes Online.

My latest post at Google Sightseeing is on the distilleries of Islay.

Also, on October 16 I’ll be moderating a panel on David Foster Wallace at the Texas Book Festival.
