Fresh blood at Futurismic: Tim Maly, Excavating Worlds

For various reasons, I’m too short of time to do any blogging today, but I have a new voice to introduce to the Futurismic choir instead. You may have noticed me linking to and mentioning one Tim Maly quite a few times in the last few months, most recently for his post on the demise of Fed-Ex.

I really like Tim’s style – caught somewhere between Geoff Manaugh and Jorge Luis Borges, perhaps – and decided to take a chance on pestering him to write for Futurismic. To my great pleasure, he agreed; his column will be titled Excavating Worlds, and there’ll be a post from Tim later today explaning what he’s intending to do. I think it’s something that a lot of you are going to enjoy. 🙂
