How to survive a robot uprising
Ok, well on a somewhat lighter note, I got a new book this morning, fresh off the plane from the good folks at Amazon. (yeah, I know, big multinational, yada, but I couldn't find it here yet).
It's call How to survive a robot uprising : Tips on defending yourself against the coming rebellion and is written by a guy called Daniel H Wilson (who is actually a roboticist himself). (It's entirely tongue in cheek, just in case you were wondering - although apparently it has upset some in the roboticist community who hate any suggestion that robots could turn evil.)
Anyways, it's got a very cool shiny cover and the pages also have a very cool shiny metallic red finish on them (who says don't judge a book by it's cover :)
find out a little more on their site - http://www.robotuprising.com
(Yes, I know this is a little geeky but there you go. Like Matt Groening (creator of The Simpsons and Futurama) says, "There is no story that can't be made a million times better with a robot")
