My good friend Lee Costello is teaming up with Michael Blaha and actor David Dean Bottrell to produce SCI-FEST, Los Angeles' first, hopefully annual Science Fiction one act play festival.
Sounds like they have some great projects already in the works and I'm eager to see them! Lee has been producing great shows in LA for decades and is a real pleasure to work with. A rare combo in LA entertainment.
From the KS:
I’m pleased to announce the arrival of SCI-FEST: The 1st Annual Los Angeles Science Fiction One-Act Play Festival. The festival (which is the first of its kind) will consist of two rotating evenings of short sci-fi plays (sort of like mini “Twilight Zone” episodes).
Other than the iconic Ray Bradbury, few writers have ever experimented with presenting compelling science fiction stories on stage, so we’re excited to be spearheading this completely unique festival. We’re also happy to be presenting it here in Los Angeles -- a city that has played a major role in the development and expansion of the genre.
On January 17, 2014, we will launch our Kickstarter campaign for Sci-Fest. The money raised will allow us to produce a beautifully realized, visually compelling festival of terrific new work featuring many well-known actors from some of your favorite Sci-Fi franchises.
Among the original one-act plays will be the first-ever stage adaptation of Sci-Fi legend, Ursula K. Le Guin's classic tale of transformation, “The Wife’s Story.” In addition, we’ll be presenting a compelling new revival of Ray Bradbury’s chilling one-act play “Kaleidoscope.”

The WiFi232 is a traditional old-timey old-schooley Hayes-compatible 300-115200 baud modem, no wider than its own parallel DB25 port. Automatically responds with a customizable busy message when already in a call. The killer app seems to be using it to get internet onto ancient retro portables like the TRS-80 Model 102, but it’s been put […]
Most tech-media takes on the iPhone’s 10th anniversary are bland and self-congratulatory, but I like Tom Warren’s at The Verge. He laments how Apple’s pocket computer killed his inner nerd. As a youngster, he’d be constantly tearing down and building computers, even in the sweltering heat of summer. But now… …All of that tinkering and […]
The current web development landscape is rife with buzzwords and technology that gets abandoned almost as soon as it’s made.

Although fully autonomous vehicles aren’t yet allowed on public streets, they are poised to dominate the roads in the not-too-distant future. But before that happens, Apple, Google, Uber, and other companies now investing in self-driving tech are going to need talented developers that can account for the dizzying array of factors at play when a […]
