      Hope you enjoyed it! And thanks, even if you disagreed with the premise I'm happy enough to know it was worth a read.

        Still reading it, it's rather long, but well written. It's actually the best academic paper I've seen in a while and think their highlighting it was a good move.

        I'd like o read your critique of Nobots when I get it finished, it touches on a few of the same things.

          Forward me a copy or a link to a google doc. I absolutely will not share it or violate your copyright in any way, and will do my best to offer a helpful and honest critique with the hope it will improve the work. PM me and I'll forward you a gdocs link to a short story I'm working on that's currently in the queue.

            Will do. I'm still editing and making minor changes so it will probably be a few more months, but I'll email a PDF when I send it to the printers. I'm publishing under the same license Cory Doctorow uses; he credits that with his status as a NYT best seller, and I think I write better than he does (of course, I'm probably the only one that thinks that).
