  • Commented on The crazy years
    I also think you should go a little easier on _Accelerando_ -- I still find it the most fun, page-turning thing you've written. And it does rather skewer the idea in some ways, particularly a True Believer assertion that a...
  • Commented on What can possibly go wrong?
    One will also David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest entertainment....
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    "Don’t let their privileged delusions pollute your thinking." I think the question of more or less radical life/healthspan extension in our lifetimes comes down to whether there are any low-hanging fruits to pick in already long-lived organisms. If some combination...
