Did you miss Glitchet on Friday? Glitchet is now a Monday thing! Instead of closing out the week we'll start it out great. We've got some great stuff in this issue - theoretical discussions about glitch, some very neat videos, and ice cold science.

Ed Grant fucked glitch art
Wh-wh-what? Glitch theory? That's right - for the very first time, we have original content, published on Glitchet, written by Matthew Austin. This digs into the theoretical aspects of glitch and an initial definition of it, as well as how Ed Grant's work interfaces with those definitions.
Glitchet is collaborating with a group of people who are interested in glitch theory and hoping to start a discussion and write more articles around the topic, so stay tuned!

The Science Surrounding Cryonics
An interesting look into the viability and technology behind preserving you by making you really, really cold. (Personally, I always figured - sure, it'd be cool to see the future, but boy would I suck in that future if I didn't participate in the time leading up to it!)
