Cool Drones and Writing in an Age of Self-Promotion

It's all about drones these days, isn't it? If you're into capturing active sports, there's the Lily drone/video camera. It's easy to operate - you just toss it in the air - and it captures video and audio from a variety of angles via Gizmag). When the Lily is officially released, it will cost about $1,000, but it's available for pre-order for a little more than half that. It's a natural for adventure tour companies. What do you think? Would you buy it? 

Plus, these days, writers really have to hustle: be active on social media, cultivate their own audiences, and of course, hustle to be recognized by editors. A former editor at a literary magazine talks about the differences between men and women when it comes to following up with editors, and resubmitting work. 

And, just for fun, check out the "Flike" - a flying bike - that's basically like three drones stuck together. Dude! Your own hovercraft!
