Need a reminder on what Net Neutrality is to help you decide if today's rulings make any sense?  Look no further than Vi Hart's explanation of what the phrase actually means.

Cabaret Voltaire to perform live for the first time in over 20 years
  The massively influential Sheffield industrial/dance band Cabaret Voltaire—or at least one of them—will play their (his?) first gig in over two decades this summer at the Berlin Atonal festival. Berlin Atonal is delighted to announce that it will host the very first Cabaret Voltaire live performance in over 20 years. Cabaret Voltaire’s blend of dance music, techno, dub, house and experimentalism made them, without a doubt, one of the most infl...

Bet I know what Venn and crew will be doing this weekend.
Just a few years ago, people were begging for the System Shock 2 legal situation to be resolved. It wasn't a technical problem, but a legal death trap of

An Evil God Game?  I could get behind that for $10.

That Which Sleeps is a turn-based strategy game where the player assumes the role of an ancient being who was sealed away in ages past but has now returned to reclaim dominion over the world.  However, when you waken you are weak and must lurk in the shadows to avoid a return to your demonic slumber.
That Which Sleeps is a re-imagining of the God Game. Take the role of an awakened evil and manipulate a living, reactive world.

Share this photo in the next 24 hours (starting July 7, 2014, 23:53 GMT) for a chance to win this ebook bundle! Contest details below.

The Cosmic SciFi Bundle at http://StoryBundle.com/SciFi is available only until Wednesday night. It includes works by Anne McCaffrey and Jody Lynn Nye, Frank Herbert, Jay Lake and Ken Scholes, Michael A. Stackpole, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Mike Resnick, Kevin J. Anderson and Doug Beason, and Peter J. Wacks, along with me, Brandon Sanderson. This is a great lineup, and in the tradition of bundles like this, you can name your price and receive six of these ebooks, and if you pay more than $12 you receive the first six as well as Legion, Crisis on Doona, and Perfectly Invisible. All are DRM-free. You can also decide what the split should be between the authors and the Storybundle organizers, and you can optionally pick how much should go to the Clayton Memorial Medical Fund, the preferred charity chosen by Jay Lake before he passed away on June 1st after a long and hard-fought battle with cancer.

Please do note that my novella Legion is the only part of the bundle that can’t be included worldwide for licensing reasons—it’s not in the bundle if you buy it from the UK or Commonwealth/former Commonwealth countries (except for Canada, where it is included in the bundle). I apologize for throwing this wrench into things, but my UK publisher has exclusive distribution rights in those countries.

I have 5 download codes to give away here on Google+. So let’s do a little contest—just hit the Share button (with the ➦ arrow) on this picture (at the original URL: https://plus.google.com/+BrandSanderson/posts/W1CBtaB4Ap3 ) and say why you like this bundle or any of my books, mark your share as Public, and you’re entered. At the end of 24 hours from when I posted this, we’ll give away download codes to the posts with the top 2 most Likes, and the other 3 winners will be selected randomly from valid entrants.

Who can enter? Anyone who is geographically able to include Legion in downloading from StoryBundle. If you’re not sure whether your country counts as a UK/Commonwealth/former Commonwealth country, go to StoryBundle.com and click on the cover image for Legion; if you’re in one of those countries the page will display a warning.

--------------

Legion is a fast-paced, witty, and supremely fun thriller with a psychological bent.

Stephen Leeds is perfectly sane. It’s his hallucinations who are mad.

A genius of unrivaled aptitude, Stephen can learn any new skill, vocation, or art in a matter of hours. However, to contain all of this, his mind creates hallucinatory people—Stephen calls them aspects—to hold and manifest the information. Wherever he goes, he is joined by a team of imaginary experts to give advice, interpretation, and explanation. He uses them to solve problems . . . for a price.

His brain is getting a little crowded, however, and the aspects have a tendency of taking on lives of their own. When a company hires him to recover stolen property—a camera that can allegedly take pictures of the past—Stephen finds himself in an adventure crossing oceans and fighting terrorists. What he discovers may upend the foundation of three major world religions—and, perhaps, give him a vital clue into the true nature of his aspects.

--------------

Later this year Subterranean Press will be releasing a limited edition hardcover of Legion‘s sequel, Legion: Skin Deep, which you can preorder here: http://subterraneanpress.com/store/product_detail/legion_skin_deep and read a preview of here: http://brandonsanderson.com/legion-skin-deep If you haven’t read the original Legion, this new bundle is a great way to whet your appetite and get ready for the sequel.
