Infinite no longer

Eileen Gunn has announced that she's putting Infinite Matrix out to pasture. This is sad news. The webzine was originally launched in the heady days of the dot-com boom out of Austin, if memory serves, but the dot-com bust happened about the time the first issue appeared. The sugar-daddy tech sector financing dried up, and the Infinite Matrix has lurched along ever since, financed by PBS-style fund drives. That it's lasted as long as it has is something we should all be grateful for.

So, before it goes poof into the digital aether, Eileen has published a heck of a lot of new articles and fiction. And there are new blog entries from Howard Waldrop as well. Very cool stuff, indeed. Go read yourself up a mess o' stuff, and tell Eileen how much you're going to miss her when she's gone.
