The problem with using the Internet for work is you start in one place, and end up in another, bewildering, and clearly not-work-related place, and have no idea how you got there.
This is particularly true when you’re a journalist, as I am. It is even more true when you’re using Facebook.
I started out doing this legitimate work thing and ended up reading about the Riverworld series of science fiction novels, which I love, and which begat not one but two TV series pilots. Which is odd, because after a TV pilot fails once it’s surprising to see someone try it again seven years later.
I have absolutely no idea how I got from where I started to Riverworld.
Although if the novels are correct, we are all going to Riverworld eventually.
The novels are fantastic – or at least the first three are – and I’d love to see somebody do them right for TV.
