Another blogger upside story

I think we need to coin yet another neologism, perhaps “blogvertigo” for that swoon a blogger feels when starting down another one of those endlessly branching (till the browser crashes) web expeditions while trying to decide what to save and what to comment on.

Blog-novel to become paper-novel: Patrick Nielsen Hayden — blogger, senior editor for Tor Books — announces on his blog this morning that, “…I really did make a publication offer, on behalf of Tor Books, to a writer named John Scalzi for a science fiction novel he had serialized on his web journal. And he very graciously accepted.”
