Coming up: special year-end Cool-Off extravaganza!

This is a special edition of the Cyberpunk Apocalypse's monthly event, the Cool-Off. We're partnering with HackPittsburgh to bring you a bigger and more encompassing "what I did this YEAR" project showcase. To coincide with HackPittsburgh's weekly Friday Night Series, we've switched days this month to be the second Friday instead of the usual second Saturday.

Here's how it works: local creative types give very short presentations of the coolest project they've worked on during the course of 2011. Although it's free to get in and/or present, to vote costs $3, and the project with the most votes at the end of the evening wins half the proceeds (the other half being split between the Cyberpunk Apocalypse and HackPittsburgh as small-scale fundraising).

If you would like to present, please email cyberpunkapocalypse at gmail with a short summary, mostly so we can have an idea of how many people will be presenting. We're asking people to present projects that they have completed (as opposed to ideas for future projects) and also that this be limited to projects done NOT as part of one's job.

Have you been awesome this year? We bet you have, and we want to hear about it.

Friday, Dec. 9
7 pm sharp!
HackPittsburgh
1936 5th Ave., around back in the alley called Watson St.

Big News @ the Cyberpunk House

Two weeks back from tour, and I find I'm still trying to regroup. The experience was incredible. Who knew that there are so many people out in the world that are into weird literary performance? I'll give you a longer breakdown of our tour in a few days (after Gunner's book is up for sale at our store), but in the meantime lets take a look around the Cyberpunk Apocalypse and survey the damage.

Since our last update Nate McDonough has moved in and already completed his first graphic novel. BLAM.

Artnoose has announced that she is pregnant, meaning this spring there will be a cyber baby--a child that will not realize that hobbits and dragons aren't real until it is in high school or later.

And lastly, the Cyberpunk Apocalypse is preparing to move. We've gotten an offer we can't refuse, so this winter we will prepair to sell our two little houses in order to buy one house. One house that is bigger, which has more bed rooms and more event space, one house that will cost significantly less to maintain because it is one house. This means that in 2012 the Cyberpunk Apocalypse will be able to help more writers, have bigger shows, and generally be more sustainable. We're sorry to leave our current home in Lawrenceville, but we are excited to start again in Pittsburgh's historic Northside.

In the meantime anybody interested in helping prepare the places for sale should email us at cyberpunkapocalypse{at} gmail [dot] com and we'll put you on the mailing list for work days. It would be much appreciated if anybody with plumbing experience would like to look and see if the pipe I believe to be a un-metered water line coming into the back house basement is in fact what I think it is.

Change is unrelenting. Do your best to ride the wave.
Until next time.
