End of the Week, End of the World 11-14-08

Sorry about the lack of posts this week. We've been waiting on some new artwork to come in so we can show you, and we've also been busy proofreading the EP layout and assigning chapters of future books to freelancers. In the meantime, here is some end-of-the-week apocalypse for you:

Over at Avatar | Anima, John Carter McKnight is liveblogging the Global Catastrophic Risks conference, which is going on today in California. (This is the sort of stuff Firewall would be interested in in EP.) So far he's covered Jamais Cascio on "Risks and Resilience" and Eliezer Yudkowsky on "Cognitive Biases in the assessment of Risk."

George Dvorsky is also throwing out live updates on twitter.
