Not sure where to put this, as all the posts mentioning Corey Doctorow are locked, but I just found this out and wanted to share.
- Boing Boing
in a pitch to get hosting help for a Polynesian Resort fan site, Doctorow says:
"The Poly is one of my favorite hotels in the world. I wrote the middle chapters of 'Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom' on a lanai in the Roratonga long-house, listening to the distant howl of the wolves at the Haunted Mansion, the chug of the railroad, the crack of the Jungle Cruise drivers shooting the hippos, and the calls of the tropical birds all around (I made close friends with an ibis on that trip)."
Awesome! (By the way, the site he is looking to help, tikiman2001.net, is still alive and kicking a year and a half later.)
