Best of the Tweets #5
Edition #5 of Best of the Tweets is out and goes from 09/11 to 09/16. Yes, only five days. That’s how prolific people are in September.
1- Neil Gaiman, who is currently running a very successful Kickstarter campaign with Amanda Palmer seems to be in the right place to share sources to prep a campaign. Here are the links that are indeed rich in information:
- Garett Gibbons: Successful Kickstarter Campaigns
- Olga Nunes:Bonnie Burton a.k.a bonniegrrl is an Author, sci-fi/horror geek, Editor/Writer at Starwars.com for Lucasfilm. You can envy her and you can follow her because she is smartly funny.
3- We met Mark Leggett last week, and I couldn’t resist but spreading again the good word this week.
4- Screenwriter John August, who penned Big Fish, Charlie’s Angels (the movie) and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to name a few scripts also hosts four stars website for screenwriters. And apparently August was passing by a writer’s room with a suicidal thoughts… ABC Charlie’s Angels maybe?(I’m really guessing, could be anything)
5- Steven Moffat, brilliant Steven Moffat! is Dr Who‘s writer since 2005 as well as Sherlock‘s writer, the revamped British TV show that won this year BAFTAs for Best Drama Series, Best Supporting Actor and Best Editing. Moffat gently mocks and warns CBS after the network channel ordered a script for a modern-day Sherlock Holmes. That smells originality.
6- Paul Ens is Co-founder of Red 5 Comics. Web dev. Former Lucasfilm guy. Other stuffand has a point. If you have a Facebook account and haven’t yet changed your settings, beware, in the last couple of weeks, several changes have been made to your profile. Not only can Facebook became the owner of all the pictures you put but also did they automatically regrouped your friends into categories you might want to uncheck or change before your BFF asks you why he or she is in the ‘barely know’ group. As for the ‘subscribe‘ new button Ens refers to, at least one good news, you need to activate it for unknown people to start suscribing to your feeds. The best thing to do is to go on your settings and lock everything that still needs to be locked.
7- Josh A. Cagan is the screenwriter of Undergrads and Bandslam but that’s not why I selected him, since I don’t know any of his work. (not yet) I just thought he nailed it with his hilarious parallel between ‘Stuff White People Like‘ and ‘Midnight in Paris‘. So yes, I’ll watch his work from now on.
