SDCC: Tor.com vs. io9

Try as I might, I couldn’t get a good rumble going between Tor.com and Io9. Sorry to say, it turns out that the Io9 peeps are totally cool, fun, warm, and welcoming, Honestly, I think I'd do OK in a full on fist fight.  Oh well, I’ll just have to wait for some other scifi internet venture to get scrappy with.

OK! Everyone name yourselves!

I'm towards the front, with the "haaa-haa-I-look-crazy" face, in tiger-claw-holds-shopping-bag stance.

The rightmost person, and the tallest, is Charlie Anders... In the io9 group, obviously. I recognize her from the Bay Area.

I would hug them all, Irene!!!...

Just a few days ago they showered love on me in this post on Io9 and I intercepted it yesterday thanks to a tip by the mythical John Joseph Adams!

Please forward a kiss - or a soft punch, as you wish - to Charlie Anders if you meet her again in the huge aisles of Comic-Con! :-)

Two blogs enter! Wait. Did you see any "Beyond Thunderdome" cosplayers?

Hey, what's happening over there? Are these the effects of the first fightings?

The bbCode of the URLs went astray all over Tor.com! :-)

I didn't know we were supposed to be rumbling . . . otherwise I would have brought my freeze ray.
