  1. A Cunning Plan

    Inventing the next twenty years, strategic foresight, fictional futurism and English rural magic: Warren Ellis attempts to convince you that they are all pretty much the same thing, and why it was very important that some people used to stalk around village hedgerows at night wearing iron goggles.

    Warren Ellis is a writer. He is not the violinist in the Bad Seeds.

    Some of the things he has written have pictures in them, like Transmetropolitan, Planetary, and The Authority. Some of the things he has written are constructed entirely from words, like Crooked Little Vein and the best-selling Gun Machine.

    Gun Machine is currently being developed for television. His book Red was adapted for the big screen in 2010. We shan’t hold it against him.

    You can find him on Twitter, on Tumblr, on This Is My Jam, and you used to be able to find him in Second Life, but most importantly, he has his own website because he’s down with the Indie Web.

  2. Andy Clarke and Anna Debenham have Unfinished Business

    This week, Andy and Anna discuss their experience of working from home (or living at work), and some of the techniques that help them block out distractions. They also debate the very important issue of how to make the perfect cup of tea. At the end of the show, they talk about Kill Bill Volume 1 in what will be a regular section about Tarantino movies.

  3. 5by5 | Back to Work #71: Sorry to Lose You as a Son

    TOPIC: The Problem with Passive-Aggression. If that’s okay with you.

    This week, Dan and Merlin apologize if they’ve made you unhappy with an episode about passive-aggressiveness, wussy non-communication, and non-apology apologies. But, maybe, that’ll just have to be okay with them.

    But, could you PLEASE take your tuna out of the fridge, pick up after your dog, make more coffee, change the toilet paper roll, and help with taking trash to the curb?

    Thank You In Advance For Your Cooperation! — The Management
