with "HIGH: Confessions of an International Drug Smuggler" starting

and whatever we want to talk about.  On September 30, we will look

The discussion with Christian Crumlish on Designing Social Interfaces
continues for a week.

Coming up right after that, starting on Wednesday the 11th, we will
talk with Brian Dear about the rise of Plato, one of the forerunners of
modern online communities, and about his adventures building Eventful,
the site where local populations demand live artists visit them --
successfully! You'll note that Brian Dear's conversation is a different
approach to the question of when an author might get the most out of
Inkwell, in that Brian is working on his book, not distributing it. 
This could be an exciting precedent.

Connie Rosenblum joins us to talk about Boulevard of Dreams, her
extensively researched and illustrated tale of the history of the
Bronx, and by extension, of American cities, starting on November 25th
and taking us into December.  

Lots of good stuff to come!
