Selection May Vary

Last chance to see!

Ferretbrain was an easy-going, irreverent e-zine about stuff - we published reviews, essays, opinion pieces, podcasts and whatever else we thought was cool at the time. It was fun while it lasted, but it's sort of served its purpose, and so by mutual agreement between both our founding editor Wardog and our current editor Arthur we are shuttering the place. The website will stay as it is so that people can pay their last respects and save anything they want to treasure forever; then it will go dark as April 2019 draws to a close. For full details see the announcement here.

For our articles, you can click on the articles link on the sidebar or browse this very front page for updates. Podcasts can be found under podcasts. The playpen was where we talked about things we found on the internet, or what happened to be on our mind at the time.

We would ask you to refrain from commenting except for on the Ferret Blogroll - a repository of links to places where contributors and commenters are going to be hanging out and posting their stuff in future - and for the Playpen, if you want to say your goodbyes there. If you still have an OpenID, that might still work. If you have an existing account you have lost access to, email the editor (editor at ferretbrain dot com) and he can help you out; otherwise, under the circumstances we're not giving out new accounts.

For more information about Ferretbrain, check out our about page (currently left as our previous editor last revised it - and now will no longer be revised).
