"...photograph by Jon Lebkowsky Hard-working, prolific genre-bending author Don Webb has worked from Austin for many years, producing unique works of short fiction usually categorized as horror, fantasy, or science fiction, or by neo-marketing terms like slipstream or avant pop.

"...When Jon Lebkowsky interviewed filmmaker Doug Block in February, they communicated by e-mail, and I opted to leave in the acronyms because it made sense to convey the story in the same cyber-spirit in which it was conducted.

"...The intellectual home of author/futurist Howard Rheingold and former Yahoo! vice president of sales and marketing, Randy Haykin, Electric Minds functions as a virtual community center that not only hosts its own topics of discourse, but sends interested parties on to local and even more specialized discussions elsewhere on the Web. And with moderators such as Internet wunderkind Justin Hall and Austin's own technoculture guru Jon Lebkowsky, cyber-celebs in their own right, participants can be sure they'll be entertained, enlightened, or incited to debate by original thoughts from those traveling the information highway on a daily basis..."
