Robert J. SawyerWorlds Without End’s Matthew Jones had the chance to interview Hugo Award-winning science-fiction writer Robert J. Sawyer a couple weeks ago.

Rob is one of the world’s leading science fiction authors, and recently held a book launch for his 18th novel, Wake, in which the World Wide Web gains consciousness. We also visit with him about the new prime time TV series coming out based on Rob’s novel, Flashforward, that will air this fall.

Upgrades to WWEnd Posted at 7:02 PM by Dave Post

Dave Post

Worlds Without EndAs you can see, if you’ve been here before (you’ll just have to trust us if you have not), we’ve made some major changes to WWEnd.  The biggest change is the over all site design with new full screen background fractals instead of the header strip and a snazzy new logo.  You’ll also notice some new tabs at the top of the page for the log in and the search as well as a fun little bit in the center.

With the design upgrade comes some fixes to existing features like the BookTrackr and the My World page.  We’ve also made the move to JQuery for all our js scripts to simplify and speed things up.  The most evident bit is the shadowbox script for the video galleries.  Speaking of videos, we’ve moved the author vids out of the resources section and into the authors section and changed the layout so you can see all the author vids on the same page now.  There are a bunch more vids in there now too so check it out.

Still more to come.  If you have any questions or comments, leave them in the forum.  We’d love to hear what you think.
