Jonathan Coulton press coverage
I can't think of a proper name for this page, but I'll be bold, or at least italicized. A lot of this information should eventually be moved off the page -- consider this a depot for now.
(Also, the info here is not in any "proper" citation format -- my intent is to put it in reverse chronological order within each "category" and to get all the relevant details about each article, etc., onto this page somewhere.)
