(tnf), what was your Talking Heads book? Did you write it under a pseudonym? I might own it....

I built an awning on the back patio today. It needs work, still, but is functional.
Cynthia Heimel (plum) Mon 26 Oct 98 08:39
Wow. Can you come to my house now?
Angus MacDonald (angus) Tue 27 Oct 98 15:56
Did I mention that it's also kind of funny-looking? Key ingredients are white corrugated plastic panels, black iron threaded pipe [vertical support], concrete blocks that come with wood tops [iron pipe support], white plastic pipe [horizontal support], hook-&-eye sets [eave suspension], and lots of nut-bolt pairs. Pretty much anyone could do this.

Um, we have CDs. Finally.

>(tnf), what was your Talking Heads book? Did you write it under a pseudonym? >I might own it.... Published by Avon in 1985. "Talking Heads: The Band and their Music," by David Gans. Between the time I signed the contract and when it was published, the editor left the company and the company abandoned music titles and trade paper. So it didn't do well. It was published in England, too, with a much cooler cover. my parents brought me a copy of that one. Avon failed to honor their contract, which would have allowed me to buy remaining copies after they deleted it, so I have only two copies. Plus one of the UK edition.

i wonder if there is a upcoming talking heads anniversary you could update it for and get it reissued (or maybe just scan it in - i'm sure a lot of talking heads sites would link to it).
David Gans (tnf) Thu 29 Oct 98 09:11
Hm, interesting idea. I wouldn't be able to post all the photos, but I certainly own the text outright.
Gail Williams (gail) Thu 29 Oct 98 10:40
What a good idea.

I think that Gail Williams and the other WELLbeings involved in constructing the inkwell should take a bow or three. The website is growing and improving. You've made well.com worth bookmarking.

Cynthia Heimel, David Gans and the quiet but serious Steve Kaye have done most of the heavy lifting.
Steve Kaye (skaye) Mon 8 Feb 99 12:26
Serious is not I.

What's the URL again, so I can send pointers to this conf to friends who are not on the WELL?
Steve Kaye (skaye) Mon 8 Feb 99 13:52
Gail Williams (gail) Mon 8 Feb 99 13:54
Strike "serious." Friends may be invited to check it out at: http://www.well.com/conf/inkwell.vue And find it linked on the WELL home page, shoudl you care to give just the www.well.com part of the URL.
Gail Williams (gail) Mon 8 Feb 99 13:54
But seriously, Steve's post slipped in just ahead of mine there.
impoverished intervallic palette (castle) Mon 8 Feb 99 18:56
But seriously, thank you folks.

Who planned/is planning the inkwell conference pages? Other than yourself and the hosts, Gail? Who implemented/is implementing it? I'd like to hear from the designers and technicians about their successful incorporation of inkwell into the well.com website. Btw, give your non-member chum the www.well.com URL only. Let her/him find her/his own way around the inkwell. Here's what I did and what I experienced whilest exploring the environs.... 1.) Entered <http://www.well.com/>. The WELL home page. Quickly spotted _Meet Farai Chideya in Inkwell.vue_. 2.) Clicked on <http://www.well.com/conf/inkwell.vue/> _Inkwell.vue_. Soon noticed _Introducing The WELL's Online Bookstore: Order your copy here_. 3.) Clicked on <http://www.well.com/bookstore/> _WELL Bookstore_. Links to books by inkwell featured guests Farai Chideya, Thaisa Frank, Phil Catalfo, Martha Soukup, and Reva Basch. 4.) Clicked on <http://www.well.com/bookstore/morebooks.html> _More Authors & Artists_. Links to books by WELLbeings Mimi Albert, Donna Atwood, Stewart Brand, Carol Brightman, William Calvin, Phil Catalfo, Francesca De Grandis, Gavin Edwards, Cliff Figallo, Thaisa Frank, Gary Gach, David Gans, Mike Godwin, flash gordon, m.d., Cynthia Heimel, Marjorie Ingall, Bob Jacobson, Paul Joannides, Jon Katz, Kevin Kelly, Mary Mackey, Susan McCarthy, Dianne Pitman, Howard Rheingold, Evelyne Slomon, Bruce Sterling, and Betty Toole. At this point, I judged www.well.com worthy of a bookmark.

With other technical support by Michelle Fox and Pete Hanson, and earlier relevent coding by Bryan Higgins. Torture-testing by first guest Reva Basch and tremendous appreciated support by all the posters in the conference. Thank *you* !
