Anybody who uses the Internet should read E.M. Forster's The Machine Stops. It is a chilling, short story masterpiece about the role of technology in our lives. Written in 1909, it's as relevant today as the day it was published. Forster has several prescient notions including instant messages (email!) and cinematophoes (machines that project...

“If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms.

I have been thinking about the goals of this website. Are we trying to create a heaven in space? This would seem to me to be a worthy goal, although we as a species have made a pretty miserable job of making any sort of heaven on earth. This seems to be the achievement of certain individuals, some of whom we may have met or read about and...
