Informotron: We’re Live (Mostly)

OK gang, Steve here.  I’ve mostly migrated all my previous MuseHack (which is also previous Fan To Pro) work here to the Informotron.  Now I’m going to be doing some pruning and purging (not sure we need old news, not sure interviews should be at a more personal site, etc.).  But we’re here.

Next up is new writing . . . and compiling my old work into readable, findable formats!
Respectfully,

– Steven Savage
