Forever Knight - Forever

So, pod fics. Anyone here actually done audio versions of their fic? Purely curiosity on my part -- no worries, you will not have audio of my fic inflicted on you. I loathe the sound of my voice, so no [g] Anyone listen to them in general? I'm wondering if there's a correlation between fans of audio books and to listeners of pod fics. In my case, I don't listen to audio books, and I haven't listened to any pod fics. And I ponder such things!

Next up: social search engines.

Once you tell Delver who you are, it builds your social graph by itself. It correlates your identities across sites like MySpace, LinkedIn, Flickr, Facebook, Digg, and more, and creates a list of who your friends are. It also layers in a list of your friends of friends. Then, when you search for something, it gives precedence to content and links from your friends and their friends. So if you're looking for an Italian restaurant recommendation in New York, you'll get results from people you know, or people your friends vouch for. Delver CEO Liad Agmon clearly believes that online content from people you know is more valuable than generic Google results. He says, "The Web is no longer just a collection of documents. It's made up of microcontributions."

'The Currency of Trust' (03/03)

Characters: Tony Stark, Pepper Potts, Obadiah Stane, Charlotte Sparrow
Notes: PG13, Iron Man with the concept of immortality from Highlander, a story in the ‘Echoes the Sea’ series. Sequel to Tequila Lullaby, set just after Rhodey blows Tony off, and the day before the Board of Directors meeting that Stane attends in New York. Implied Tony/Pepper. Many thanks to ninjababe and strangevisitor7 for the beta -- it's much appreciated!
Summary: The bright light of day can’t quite dispel the darkness that surrounds Tony, so the people closest to him do their best to help with a little love and a few chocolate chip waffles.

My thanks to the folks over at ironman_lounge for helping out every time I had a question!

"You could call it that," Tony replied. "But the best way to explain is by demonstrating."
