I figure an endeavor like this deserves some sort of introduction to
get things started. A bit of a “Who, What, Why…” sort of thing.
First, the who – you can read more about me here.
What? I tend to be interested in physics, biology, neuroscience,
artificial intelligence, computer science, scientific histories and
biographies, science fiction, and hell, pretty much any book that blows your hair
back. Incidentally, the title of the site itself is a play on
words regarding the possibility of man creating another intelligence
in the world.
As to why, mostly, this blog is a way for me to get my thoughts down –
to work through things I’ve been reading, thinking, and taking notes
about for many years now. I expect it to be a bit scattershot, but I
also think that’s going to be half the fun.
