“Projects from the Bleeding Edge” — that’s us! Fictionaut co-founder Jürgen Fauth contributed a chapter on our community to Book: A Futurist’s Manifesto, a collection of essays about the state of publishing edited by Hugh McGuire and Brian O’Leary,  now available from O’Reilly.

Fictionaut is joining Reddit, Wikipedia, Boing Boing, and many other sites in the strike to oppose the Internet censorship bills SOPA and PIPA. Tomorrow, January 18, the site will go dark from 8am to 8pm EST. Fictionaut is committed to creativity, freedom of expression, and a censorship-free Internet, and we hope that the blackout will help to draw attention to this fundementally flawed legislation.

In addition to our regular, 100% handmade @Fictionaut Twitter feed, we are now offering an automated stream of community recommendations called @FictionautRx.
