10/15, or so they say. If you've never had his chicken, you should plan to go. It's amazing.

Charles Stross's next book (described only by title and what it's not here) will concern a system (probably highly-automated with distributed human components (possibly a hijacked altruistic distributed-computing platform) for generating arbitrary, high-quality, realistic pornography featuring arbitrary persons.

Said pornography will then be used for some kind of financial shenanigan -- either a major stock manipulation (most likely of a large entertainment company, but possibly of an insurer/bank by causing them to pay out completion insurance on a major production) or, for the weirder but smaller payoff, a move in the royalty backed bond secondary market.

Star Trek Online continues to look interesting. Romulans won't be in at launch, but will be a faction later, and Ferengi (apparently as members of the Federation) will be in at launch. If I decide to play, watch for me as a Ferengi Tactical or Security officer, or a Romulan Science officer or Engineer if I wait until they're in.
