You knew it was just a matter of time...
So, erm, what is it with fake motivational posters today?
My housemates were talking about them earlier, and I ran into another one a few minutes ago...
Fake motivational posters are a staple of modern geek humour - but this is my first of the week.

"Sci Fi Channel has ordered a six-hour miniseries based on Neal Stephenson's best-selling novel "The Diamond Age: Or a Young Lady's Illustrated Primer" to be produced by George Clooney."
Hmm, sounds interesting
Yes. Of his books, it's probably the easiest to pull off successfully as a miniseries, in that it relies mostly on shiny set pieces.
But I don't think it'll all fit in six hours, so there'll be some plot butchery necessary...
(And there are bits that'll certainly need cutting for US network TV.)
