Gonna watch it (or at least, NotLD) tonight with a couple of friends. I think I can write it off as "Research" anyway. [wink]
Next on my zombie-culture list are the films 28 Days and 28 Days Later - it would seem that my planned high-speed zombies are more like the rage-infested zombies from those films than the slow-moving Romero ones - along with The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead by Max Brooks. (It seems there's a second edition of that one coming out in September, which I guess I'll wait for).
I'm also working through that book of sci-fi crime stories - some of which have inspired some beautiful ideas for the cyberpunk game. Even those that haven't have been most interesting - examining futures in which everyone has the right to not be offended, or where people have electronic agents that filter the world around them to prevent information overload (but is it just filtered, or is it actually manufactured?). There's been zero traffic on U:O, but I'm pretty sure that once I've built up the design document to a significant degree, I can upload it and get the attention of the other team members. They'll still be hanging around uplinkcorp somewhere.
Soon I will be an encyclopaedia of zombie and cyberpunk information. After that, I will move on to knowledge of pirates and ninjas. Thus I shall be truly cool.
