Moore IS remaking Wild Wild West!
by Doc on Nov.10, 2010, under Television
Apparently the rumors were true (although when I asked him last month, he couldn’t say anything.) Ronald D. Moore and Naren Shankar (former exec for CSI) are writing/exec. producing The Wild Wild West for CBS (after a deal is worked out with Sony, who Moore has a development deal with).
It appears that CBS thinks pairing SF writers with CSI producers is a winning combo, given the success of their reboot of Hawaii Five-0.

This was floating around the Twitterverse, but JMS confirmed it a short time ago on Facebook:
As reported: with the huge success of the Superman GN, DC wants to fast-track the next one. This will require a great deal of care, requiring me to step back from scripting the monthlies to focus on this. Those stories will continue to their conclusion, based on my outlines. I’m also taking this opportunity to take a 1-5 year sabbatical from writing comics to concentrate on GNs and miniseries.

Stargate Worlds developer wins IP, loses license
by Doc on Nov.10, 2010, under Games, Television
AirlockAlpha has an article about the win-lose situation involving the Stargate Worlds MMOPRG game that has been in development for years and put on hold earlier this year – and now will likely never see the light of day. Developer Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier this year, won a court ruling that says it owns all the intellectual property for the game, which former employees tried to walk away with and form a rival company. However, MGM has revoked their franchise license – so all the materials regarding Stargate can no longer be used. However, Stargate: Resistance was apparently not affected by the license.
