Quantum Vibe, Volume 2: Murphy On Sale!
Hey kids! The next print installment of Quantum Vibe is on sale now.
Volume 2: Murphy picks up with Nicole safely away from her imprisonment on Luna, bound for Mars, so that Seamus may take care of some business matters. Nicole quickly learns that Mars is a planet of intrigue disguised as civility, and it's not long before she stumbles head long into plots so twisted you'd need an AI to sort them out. Fortunately, she makes friends with one.
BONUS: For the first time, you will get to see the first 60 pages converted from black & white to full color. Now you get to experience the entire Murphy saga in "living color". As I'm sure many of you agree, it's good to have a colorist. Click here to get your very own copy.
The .bit Revolution Begins!
I know the crypto/digital freedom fighters out there are wondering how in the world will they get to see the next daily update of Quantum Vibe after the forces of tyranny seize control of the Internet's domain name system. Well fear not. Michael W Dean of Freedom Feens told us about a decentralized domain naming system which makes use of a bitcoin like technology called namecoin. You may have seen a reference to it earlier this week on Quantum Vibe.
This distributed registry resolves Internet addresses for domains ending in .bit. Now, you can access the bigheadpress.com and quantumvibe.com websites using the names bigheadpress.bit and quantumvibe.bit.
If you want to try it out, you can download the free firefox plugin, freespeechme, from here.

The Transcript For This Page
In the encounter room at Dalliances, Seamus and Nicole continue their ultra-private conference.
Nicole: I hope you brought us in here for more than a history lesson, Seamus.
Seamus: Quite so. I was merely establishing the context for my purpose.
Medium shot on Seamus.
Seamus: It is my theory that humans flourish best when they have frontiers to explore and conquer.
Seamus: Keep us bottled up within boundaries long enough and our culture begins to rot and erode, and people become either ennervated or self-destructive.
Medium close-up on Nicole, looking dubious.
Nicole: I â€“ I suppose so, but we still have plenty of unexplored places in the Solar System.
Nicole: Don't we?
Seamus, looking ominous.
Seamus: We have a few such places on the inhospitable fringes, and your mother's Venusian terraforming project may well give us one more interesting place to build upon.
Seamus: But the rot has already set in.
Seamus and Nicole.
Seamus: Luna was once much like L-5 City is now, but, well, you'll see when we get there.
Nicole: Ok, so granted we need new frontiers, and the stars are probably out of our reach. What else is there?
Now Seamus smiles one of his enigmatic smiles.
Seamus: While we've been looking for new worlds across the canyons of intersteallar space, we have overlooked countless new worlds almost literally right around the corner.
Seamus: In alternate quantum universes.
Looking past Seamus at Nicole, Nicole rolls her eyes.
Nicole: Alternate universes? Oh, come on.
Nicole: David Deutsch proved way back in the First Century that we could never even detect them, much less cross the dimensional barrier.
Medium close-up on Seamus, looking determined.
Seamus: David Deutsch was brilliant. And, he was wrong.
