I'm such a sucker for Web 2.0 viral marketing. When Neil Gaiman asks people to do something in his Twitter feed, what do I do? I do it. Here's what he said:

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
