TCLP 2010-05-12 Review: Postsingular and Hylozoic

This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command Line Podcast.

Listener feedback this week is Philip, Jed and Brad who all commented on my Dr. Who monologue. Sergio, Claudio, and Curtis also chatted up the segment on Mr wrote in about my NoSQL rant. And pseudomorph wrote in response to the Mozilla Account Manager story from the 2nd news cast. He shared a couple of links on digital identity and whether intellectual monopoly is making us dumb.

The hacker word of the week this week is fear and loathing.

The feature this week is an in depth book review of “Postsingular” and “Hylozoic” by Rudy Rucker. In the review, I mention the two short stories from which the first book was developed, Rucker’s blog post questioning the wisdom of computronium, my earlier review of one of Rucker’s non-fiction works, the internet of things, and the free download edition of “Postsingular”.
