Bostrom tackles the coming Artificial Intelligence explosion by looking at the issue through a tri-colored lens: macro-economics, game theory, and philosophy.Lots of new concepts here for me, and I was already keen on the topic: AI as an oracle, gen...

Ring of Flowers by Brian  Andrews
"A short novella of less than 50 pages, the prequel to The Calypso Directive, Ring of Flowers is in part a love story, in part a chronicle of how the bubonic plague ("black death") got to Eyam in England. It also gives us a glimpse into the ancesto..." Read more of this review »

The Calypso Directive by Brian  Andrews
"Mostly I enjoyed this book. There were some issues that I had with it but overall, I felt that it was worth reading.

Enjoyable:

“When ego trumps fidelity, the end result is inevitably betrayal—betrayal of country, of kith or kin, or of self.”

“Life is a suicide mission.”
Orson Scott Card

“There were times—not many, but a few—when Jon Snow was glad he was a bastard.”
George R.R. Martin

“Whereas it appeareth that however certain forms of government are better calculated than others to protect individuals in the free exercise of their natural rights, and are at the same time themselves better guarded against degeneracy, yet experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms, those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny; and it is believed that the most effectual means of preventing this would be, to illuminate, as far as practicable, the minds of the people at large, ....whence it becomes expedient for promoting the publick happiness that those persons, whom nature hath endowed with genius and virtue, should be rendered by liberal education worthy to receive, and able to guard the sacred deposit of the rights and liberties of their fellow citizens, and that they should be called to that charge without regard to wealth, birth or accidental condition of circumstance.”
Thomas Jefferson, Writings: Autobiography/Notes on the State of Virginia/Public & Private Papers/Addresses/Letters

In the beginning the Universe was created.
