    Yeah, I want to read more of that, as well. I find the topic very intruiging because it's rare you get to listen to someone speak about the interaction between humans and technology in such a broad sense. People are way caught up in specific products and having the latest and greatest tech (myself included..) that it's nice to back up a bit and think about the big picture.

    It may feel like a natural concept for us to integrate ourselves with technology the most we can, but I think this is a very new phenomenon. It's a common thing for people before our generation to somewhat fear the movement towards integrating too much with computers. I suppose we've been putting a lot more of ourselves into new tech since.. I guess the industrial age.. but it's really reaching a new level with how interconnected we are with our computers and the Internet.

    Anyways, this sounds like a cool book, I wanna read it.

    This is a bit behind everyone else but i just finished the Ender's Game series aside from Ender's Shadow. I'd love some suggestions because for the most part I don't do much other than work and occasionally go out at night.. the middle of my day is pretty much filled with a whole lot of nothing.

    I ate those up in high school! for an entire year study hour was just Ender time.

    you're thinking novels then, Matt? a lot of us have read Dune at some point and we'd all probably recommend that to you.

    I've been intrigued by it. I'll have to go purchase it before I accidentally watch the movie.
