Thanks to Instapundit for recommending "Singularity Sky"
Read it this weekend. Of course, being a huge fan of physicist Brian Greene’s Fabric of the Cosmos and The Elegant Universe, I was hooked by the first mention of quantum entanglement and causality violations. I also read the suthor described as a “leftist” in an Amazon book review, which gives me great hope for the future as it seemed to endorse a lot free-market libertarian ideals. If this is the kernel of a someday-to-emerge neoleftism, who knows: I might even vote Democrat some day.
UPDATE: Instapundit mentions my email! This is a mixed bag; on the one hand it's a nice sop to my narcissism to be noticed by hundreds of thousands of people, but on the other hand I probably should have sent a link to my blog and my email has so many typos and half-articulated points that it appears to be written by someone semi-literate (I cleaned it up a bit here).
