Hi everyone,

After too many years in the making, my book on pop language, Slam Dunks and No-Brainers, has just been been published, and the time has come for me to shamelessly promote it. I’m doing some NYC and New Jersey events, listed below. I also threw in a few book tour events in the Bay Area and Chicago, in case you or any friends of yours are out there.

Meanwhile, you can buy the book on Amazon (uh, duh): http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0375402470/

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
