    .... only he calls it "drinking." But having met two of BERG, m'self, I can say with some authority that drinking == scheming.

    Have you been paying attention to BERG, lately? You should be. Even though I know most of you never read Warren's website. See: Here's a video they did with Dentsu.

    (They're also the blokes responsible for BBC's Dimensions, which, seriously, settles more internet arguments than you may imagine.)

    So, yeah -- That's what Warren's doing today: drinking, consulting, scheming.

    I have been paying attention to BERG.

    Matt Webb's talk at Reboot last year is an informative half hour.

    Scope - Design and contributing to culture; ourselves as individuals and the big picture; taking action.

    It is my opinion that scheming is the best excuse for drinking until you are blind, or being dragged off the side of buildings by the police.

    This is about an Epic Space Laser of Death, isn't it? About damn time.

    We believe you warren......

    Mind you that Dimensions Site on the BBC is incredibly illuminating. The section about terrorism especially. I mean, who knew that guantanamo bay was that BIG?

    The dimensions site has really freaked me out! I feel Like I need a drink too.

    I will have to console myself with the I Pad stop motion artistry from BERG.

    Mighty plotting. And working with an old comics-artist friend, too...

    Why do I have the suspicion, and hope, that this plotting is going to involve imparting delicious still warm and bleeding information into our head cavities in interesting ways?

    I must get in touch with the Berg people someday. Guy I know worked on that iPad lightpainting project.

    Dave Berg is the the only Berg I'm familiar with. Also, "berg" means "mountain" in Swedish.

    Does this mean that I can expect to download my own personal Warren Ellis App to abuse me in the comfort of my own phone? Will it be AI or just a kind of expert system?

    YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE WORD "SUAVE" IS QUESTIONABLE
