Selection May Vary

Ferretbrain is an easy-going, irreverent e-zine about stuff - we publish reviews, essays, opinion pieces, podcasts and whatever else we thought was cool at the time. 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 is where we talk about things we found on the internet, or what happened to be on our mind at the time.

If you'd like to join our wayward repository of ideas, you can comment on any article using Open ID or you can email the editor (editor at ferretbrain dot com) for a Ferretbrain account, which has the added bonus of letting you post in the playpen.

For more information about Ferretbrain, or joining Ferretbrain, check out our about page (currently left as our previous editor last revised it - mild revisions forthcoming).

The recent bug affecting article dating has been resolved, thanks to our tech-wizard Rami. (Thank you, Rami!) If you've been sitting on an idea for an article, now's the perfect time to press on with it.
