OT: Tompepsi update

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

A few readers have responded to Tompepsi and I thank you very much for you kind and encouraging words.

Just wanted to drop a note to let you know that when I checked the links were working to all (four) of the chapters, and I should have two more chapters up by the 3rd or 4th of April, and new chapters should be posted every week or two.

Seems like every week, often, anyway, I read things in the paper that sound a lot like Tompsi in Jimtown. I'm thinking of recent stories of reporters posting negative stories about large companies and being sued. Such legal actions, and the enormous cost of defense, spell death for "freedom of speech/press."

Perhaps you remember a story not long ago about an electronic circuit or computer chip incorporating a living cell?

Hi johno-- GOOOD NEWS! Now I will go ahead and read Chapt. 4.

Yes, I remember the single cell sandwiched in the computer chip article. And just when does sentience occur? Vast changes are happening in such a short time. Biology used to be such a simple science. Bio-machines are already here or very close. And according to Mr. Joy, SELF-REPLICATING bio-machines very soon.
