Assembled, Zipped, Transferred And Downloaded: News From Digital

* the on-line Domino Books store has expanded their offerings.

* I don't know I've mentioned the ShortBox curatorial service Zainab Akhtar has put together a whole lot thus far, but that's the smartest extension of an on-line area of expertise since the Penny Arcade gang started doing gaming shows. The new box looks great.

* there was a time about five years ago that I thought coverage of San Diego Con would be really future-forward in terms of the techniques employed, but it seems to have slightly regressed. I actually think that's more to do with changes in what's being covered not matching the technology than anything else, but that's more hunch than anything else. I also know that somewhere out there someone is trying to put together a gaming interface for news because of the success of Pokemon Go. But for now it's written articles, some video and social media updates for the eighth year in a row.

* then again, it looks like Hollywood Reporter is in the content-hosting business now. So maybe the innovations just aren't in coverage.

* finally, Gary Tyrrell parses the latest announcement from Iron Circus Comics.
