Pick 'n' Mix for the discerning mind!

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 thriving community, you can comment on any article using Open ID or you can email the editor for a Ferretbrain account, which has the added bonus of letting you post in the playpen.
