@Grady_Booch @pmarca Grady, you know I won't rest until I have a fembot to house my consciousness.@Grady_Booch how close are you to the big island?@Grady_Booch PS. I might come visit soon.@Grady_Booch @pmarca I think the paranoia about homicidal strong AI stems from our own lack of moral authority but, hey."The groom almost died when he was dancing on an elephant and the drone swooped in to get the video and the elephant freaked out."My apprentice is making a robot @sciencehouse today. http://t.co/ehlQDxgweEWe @ScienceHouse are so excited for the arrival of @CultureInst today!

Personally, I've *always* been impressed with Paffendorf's zeal: http://t.co/xlgDrtYNUP (@WELLO, I just saw this xo).@JoyceCarolOates last tweet relevant to our conversation yesterday...@JoyceCarolOates: “@Reddy: What you study in college matters much more than where you went: http://t.co/q8uvaELnfI http://t.co/uaCD1ovq6u@Tim_OConnell is #DNBHL the Lost if the Internet?
@JoyceCarolOates PS. I just last night read an interesting passage in Rollo May's The Courage to Create in which you are mentioned.@JoyceCarolOates I'm not too worried about the future for smart people in privileged positions with access to resources. They will be okay.@JoyceCarolOates I agree. Stanford is in a league of its own with few peers. Very few people have access to that level of education.@JoyceCarolOates treating the humanities and science as two separate inquiries is part of the reason why universities are losing relevance.@JoyceCarolOates as a student of art and science: humanities courses looking to explore "why" could benefit from adding scientific literacy.@JoyceCarolOates Education is a necessity, but how people are being educated is changing.@JoyceCarolOates Necessary for *what* is a better question. Depends on goals of the individual/society and relevance of specific education.Hopped-up Large Hadron Collider poised to venture into the realm of exotic #physics http://t.co/rO82s7XvLo #science http://t.co/pILfeU2U6v

On Yuri Gagarin's birthday, a piece @zeabarker and I created for @TheAtlantic a couple of years ago: http://t.co/dm1YNucXgk #space"Western culture often hides death, and thus also cheats us of life."
