This synergy between the Betaworks products is why I have such high hopes for the Digg Reader. We’ll see tonight/tomorrow when I get beta access (hopefully).

Um, okay, so all of a sudden I am veryVeryVERY nervous: You may officially pre-order Bun B’s Rap Coloring and Activity Book. There are so many people to thank here that I fear should I begin I might never ever end, so I will save that for longer evenings. Today, just this: Thank you. Everyone. Sincerely. SINCERELY. For real. FOR REAL.
This has all really been a truly remarkable experience. If you are ever given the opportunity to work with a music legend possessed of a superheroic amount of insight and a powerhouse publisher that still somehow very much manages to make even the smallest of its authors feel important, I recommend you towards it.
Couple of answers to questions that keep finding their way into our inbox:
When will the book be published?
September 17, 2013. It will, to be sure, the most glorious day that man has ever known.
Will any of the pages from the Tumblr be in the book?
Nope. The entire book is made up of new images. I’ve not seen my family in several months because I’ve been working so fervently on all these original pieces. I hear my sons are tall and strong now. I look forward to seeing them soon.
How many coloring/activity pages are there?
I heard this book is national hero. Can you talk a little about that?
Sure. In 2004, Bun B’s Rap Coloring and Activity Book dove into a cold, freezing river in Minnesota behind a school bus full of sickly children that had flipped over a railing on a bridge and landed in it. Bun B’s Rap Coloring and Activity Book successfully rescued the driver and all of the children involved in the crash, as well helped stabilize the ecosystem by removing the entirety of a population of a foreign species of water moccasin that had been illegally introduced to the area.
What type of pages in the book?
At the risk of sounding too cryptic, “excellent types” seems like the most appropriate answer. It’s approximately half traditional coloring pages and half activity pages though, if that helps.
Who is in the book?
The thing that needs to be said here is that every single person whose face appears in this book gave us expressed, written permission to do so. Like, EVERY SINGLE ONE. And that’s something everyone who worked on the book is very proud of. I’m not so sure any coloring book like this has ever accomplished that. I suspect that, had Bun B not been involved, that’d have been basically an impossible hurdle to get over. But Bun is such a revered, respected figure that we actually had more rappers that wanted to be featured than space available. It was really surreal. So, but to the question: Who is in the book? Bun B and 41 of his famous rapper friends.
If I buy this book, will it make me more successful in life?
Yes. Absolutely. You will be taller and in better shape and more attractive to other people.
Once again, thank you, everyone. You are all our close, personal, true best friends.
Buy the book. Be trill.

Great examples of use cases for 3D printers. Very excited about this technology and it’s increasing adoption.
