ACT-I-VATE is proud to announce THE ACT-I-VATE PRIMER.

  1. This looks both exciting and awesome!

    (For anyone associated with the project reading this, though, please ensure that the spelling of “foreword” is fixed at some point…)

  2. I have seen the interiors for this book, and it is truly the bees knees.

    Between it dropping @ Baltimore and the Zuda crew being Harvey nom’d out the keester, I think I need to be there. Perhaps I will become a shelterless vagrant for the weekend and tweetblog about it until I am mugged.
