  1. Lorem ipsum is in deed very usefull but says little when used for a summary?!

    :P

  2. […] I actually read the HUGO-nominated (and CC-licensed!) “Blindsight” by outstanding author Peter Watts.  Joan had introduced my to Starfish and Maelstrom – which we own but are also CC-licensed, and I was happy to read the new book as well as re-read the other two books.  The ideas in these books are little candies that you can roll around in the mouth of your mind!  They’re great little technology romps and highly recommended.  (See here – the PDF versions *are* readable on the Sony Reader – turn them sidewise with a Medium zoom – it’s slow to turn pages but you pick up the rhythm quickly).  And the work is definitely worth purchasing, if only to hand to someone you know who likes Sci-Fi and doesn’t like to read from a pixellated (e-ink or not!) screen. I also went through a large amount of Overclocked, Cory Doctorow’s short story collection.  One thing I lost with the Sony Reader platform was the ordering of the printed format.  I think Cory’s does great work in the novella format.  Some of the short stories have been hit (especially 0wnz0red) or miss, and his books have been interesting but not always compelling.  Sometimes I have a hard time reading stuff that is preaching to the choir, or similarly re-used ideas.  But he is worth reading though.  I’ve bought one of his books too, although the name is evading me.
