  1. This one won’t HuffDuff either!

  2. Outstanding interview, Patrick and Ken. But Ken! How could you call “The Paper Menagerie” a “lighter” piece. That story had me in tears by the end.

  3. Wow, Ken is a writing machine in his dedication to “GTD”. Admirable and inspiring, Ken.

  4. Also, the “destroy history in the act of seeing it and preserving it” reminds me of the Book scanning subplot of Rainbows End.

  5. So if you want to be a writer, have a baby. How come Mur never mentioned that?

  6. I’d ask Ken if he’s changed his mind on that since having his second child, but in the time it would take me to ask, he’d write 2 more stories. 😉

  7. HuffDuff is a verb – from the website, where you can turn any mp3 file (any normal MP3 file) into a file that goes into your own personal podcast.

    Here’s mine:
