New short blog post: https://www.harihareswara.net/sumana/2017/12/08/0 the themes of networked identity, body violation, freedom inhering in being able to unplug/choose, in scifi by Newitz, Sugar, Wells, & LeckieThanks, wishlisted* both Annalee Newitz' Autonomous and Nicola Griffith's Slow River. Loved Martha Wells's All Systems Red, and Ann Leckie's Radch universe books.
* for bookmarks -- my TBR piles (physical and virtual bought books) are already ridiculously high. Physical is 1/10 men/women author ratio, apparently.

- I just reread https://www.gq.com/story/stephen-colbert-gq-cover-story on grief, joy, going beyond pat answers"The urge to be grateful, he said, is not a function of his faith. It's not “the Gospel tells us” and therefore we give thanks. It is what he has always felt: grateful to be alive. “And so that act, that impulse to be grateful, wants an object. That object I call God."
