  • Commented on Time tourism: some reaction shots
    I mostly just hope you turn Palimpsest into a novel....
  • Commented on We interrupt this broadcast ...
    Oooooo~ooh (that is my ghost noise) I'm waiting for the book to show up on my kindle. :)...
  • Commented on Crib sheet: Singularity Sky
    Wow. Thanks so much for writing this. It made me feel a lot better about my career trajectory :)...
  • Commented on PSA: Ignore the news
    What about tax-funded news outlets?...
