Frequently Asked Questions

What is this site?

It’s the personal site of Graeme McMillan, and for the most part, it’s a place to post things that don’t have homes anywhere else; stories written for the offline world, personal thoughts, images or whatever. Random ephemera recorded for the near-posterity of the internet.

Who is Graeme McMillan, then?

A freelance writer whose work appears on websites belonging to the Hollywood Reporter, Wired, Playboy, The Verge, and many many many more. (No, really, I’ve been doing this for more than a decade; I’ve written for io9, Time and a bunch of other outlets including all kinds of comic sites. Really, I’ve been all over the place.) An old nerd who lives in Portland, Oregon. It’s me. Hi.

How do you say your name? Gra-eem?

It’s the same as “Graham,” like the cracker.

What’s that accent? Are you Australian or Irish or something?

It’s Scottish. That’s where I spent the first 28 years of my life. (Yes, I’m old. Sorry.)

I cover that here and, to a lesser extent, here.
