I'm in the midst of trying to get caught up on some work, but I wanted to briefly mention something I just ran into over at Pat Rothfuss's blog--he's posted an interview he did with the Liquid Weird podcast about writing, gaming, and philosophy (specifically Diogenes--he can say what he likes, but...
