  • Commented on The sudden eruption of news
    I see May's taking a page from Israeli PM Netanyahu's playbook. He's called early elections twice now, once for spurious reasons, another iwththe stated purpose of getting a more convenient (for him) parliament....
  • Commented on Children and War Toys and Violent Video Games and Action Stories
    Obligatory reference: Saki's short story, "The toys of Peace". Pre- WWI. This is in no way a recent discussion. http://www.eastoftheweb.com/short-stories/UBooks/ToysPeac.shtml Personally I have no objection to "violent" games (i.e. make believe games involving weapons), but I wouldn't insist on five...
  • Commented on State of the Charlie
    I'm with Lior, keep us israeli fans updated....
  • Commented on Repurposing Memory
    So, here's my question. Suppose Nefshons exist. They encode memories, but we are more than the sum of our memories. We also have the neural wetware that deals with logic, abstraction, language, etc. Our personality is influenced by stuff outside...
  • Commented on The present in deep history
    Even without a singularity, at some point in the next 100-200 years we're going to see automation, manufacturing and AI (not necessarily human level or self aware) converge to make all human labor - and most white collar jobs -...

  • Commented on Introducing guest blogger: Aliette de Bodard
    Hey Aliette! Just finished Servant of the Underworld a couple of weeks ago (on audiobook) and enjoyed it immensely. I'm about to visit Paris later this month and I was thinking of picking up House of Shattered Wings as I...
  • Commented on Not-so-Invisible Ninjas
    Charlie, I wasn't sea-lioning, I swear. What I meant was, as someone who gets up to date on SFF by reading websites such as Tor.com or i09, and blogs such as this one, James Nicoll's, and occasionally Scalzi's, And having...
  • Commented on Not-so-Invisible Ninjas
    Who are these people who complain that Women writing SF/F in general are hard to find? I keep seeing complaints about that, not sure I've seen someone saying that in real life. Granted, I live in my own liberal bubble,...
  • Commented on How I learned to stop worrying and love the concept of punitive slating....
    Carl - a slate become illegitimate when it attempts to convince people to nominate or vote for works they have not themselves read. This makes VD's slate obviously illegitimate as he explicitly urges people to vote for the list exactly...
  • Commented on Chilling Effects
    Linda, I just downloaded a sample and also bought a couple of your older books. I'm always on the lookout for interesting hard-edged SF and these sound like I might enjoy them. That said, I want to talk about an...
