strung out on science fiction

The Gawker empire has launched another new site - this one focused on science fiction, of all things: io9. (Its official launch date is today, but it has archives going back to September.) I was a little skeptical as to whether I'm the intended audience when the main categories on the front page included books, movies, science, and Hayden Panettiere. Subsequent page clicks, however, replaced Hayden with categories like Photography, Must Read, and Space Porn. Annalee Newitz tops its masthead.
