Examples of books in his genre are Contact by Carl Sagan to books like Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. We pick a new book at the beginning of each month and discuss them at the end of the month in local and online meetups. These meetups can be found in our "Meetup" section. We're open to book recommendations and will hold polls to help decide on what to read next! Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/tpsdfw Twitter: @planetarydfw

[close] This discussion group is related to the new SIMPOC series on Amazon. This series is about how one 'thinking computer' helps to save the remainder of humanity after 99.9997% of the human population is wiped out by a suspicious virus. The corporation also created another 'thinking computer' that has a different agenda.
