"...the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like the fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..." - Jack Kerouac blog : Fabric Wall Clings

Rudy Rucker's classics are now free.


I love Rudy Rucker.

Dr. Nanochick:

I dig Rudy Rucker.


Rudy Rucker rules!

Rudy Rucker:

It starts with Software, where rebel robots bring immortality to their human creator by eating his brain. Software won the first Philip K. Dick Award.

In Wetware, the robots decide to start building people -- and people get strung out on an insane new drug called merge. This cyberpunk classic garnered a second Philip K. Dick award.

By Freeware, the robots have evolved into soft plastic slugs called moldies -- and some human "cheeseballs" want to have sex with them. The action redoubles when aliens begin arriving in the form of cosmic rays.

And with Realware, the humans and robots reach a higher plateau.

On the internet:

I just hope the public won't ever be bullied or bamboozled into letting the bosses bottle up the genie. That's something we need to keep an eye on.

On "Infinity and the Mind":

It is in the realm of infinity that mathematics, science, and logic merge with the fantastic. By closely examining the paradoxes that arise from this merging, we can learn a great deal about the human mind, its powers, and its limitations.

On "Mathematicians in Love":

Rucker cleverly pulls off a romantic comedy about mathematicians in love.

On "Frek":

Like every great science fiction novel, "Frek and the Elixir" is really about the present -- about the power of corporations, about media and entertainment, about bioengineering, about quantum mechanics, about your wife or girlfriend, your next-door neighbor, and your boss, and about you, at age twelve, and now.

On "Spaceland":

Spaceland challenges readers to imagine what life might be like in a world with four spatial dimensions.

Technology Review: Synthetic Genome Reboots Cell
Topic: Miscellaneous 3:05 pm EDT, Jun  8, 2010

Venter and his colleagues are working with Novartis and the National Institutes of Health to synthesize cassettes--clusters of genes that could be inserted into a synthetic genome--for every known flu virus in an effort to streamline the vaccine manufacturing process. They envision a system where, if a new strain such as H1N1 emerged, developing a vaccine would be as straightforward as shuffling genes encoding the relevant viral fragments into a synthetic genome. This could then yield a cell that could be used to quickly manufacture the product.

Technology Review: The $30 Genome?
Topic: Miscellaneous 2:53 pm EDT, Jun  8, 2010

At a time when the longtime goal of a $1,000 genome is still just out of reach, a Harvard University physicist is promising an even cheaper price--the ability to sequence a human genome for just $30.

Help Nashville! Multiple friends of mine recommend this as a safe and trustworthy site for making donations to help Nashville and Middle Tennessee recover from the massive flooding that occurred this weekend.
