Pre-teens climbed up on the empty vegetable carts, blowing loud whistles. More people than I can name here stepped up and pitched in considerably, but I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge John Adair who single-handedly built the ruby on rails application; Andrew Lippert Biznik’s CTO, who improved it, expanded it, and helped it grow with the times, and continues to stand by me today; Danny Bronski, Biznik’s counsel who provided impeccable legal services, sage business advice and invaluable support; Karrie Kohlhaas, who provided strategic insights and an undying passion to see Biznik thrive; Matt Lawrence Biznik’s Community Director who’s guided this community with love and respect — and who I am fortunate to count among my dearest friends; and my husband Dan McComb, who started this whole thing with me, had the sense to leave 5 years into it, saving our marriage, yet continues to champion me today.

What we have learned is that many women writers, especially those committed to social justice, don’t have time or energy to submit their work, and/or are not ready or willing to face all the rejection that comes with submitting their work. And so, because of the automated and irrevocable decision-making process, which rules out human meddling, the Doomsday Machine is terrifying and simple to understand, and completely credible and convincing.” GENERAL BUCK TURGIDSON (STERLING HAYDEN): “Gee, I wish we had one of them Doomsday Machines.” Others offered escape through spy adventures, like the James Bond films.
