Reynolds Wrap Up

I called out to my readers and fellow bloggers (all of whom I trust to have good taste) for their opinions on whether or not I should blog about Glenn Reynolds' position at the Foresight Institute. If you haven't done so, please read my previous post before moving on. I'll share a few responses before getting to my decision.

I probably wouldn't read your blog if it was dedicated to picking apart Reynolds, whereas reading a grad student in the field talking about what's good in the field seems like it would be interesting.

Ordained Minister of the Church of the Subgenius, Reverend Mykeru, lends us a bit of his patented viciousness:

Unfortunately, the Foresight Institute may have a real research justification for keeping Instapundit around. As I understand it, the real problem with implementing nanotechnology is not just making gears, shafts and other brute mechanical devices microscopically small, but also to design on-board computer programs and hardware that will have to be the last word in miniaturized artificial intelligence.

In which case, the first thing I would do is study something with a brain as small as Glenn Reynolds'.

Wouldn't you?

I only wish Glenn and the Foresight Fellows would make such generous sacrifices for the field, Rev.

Bill from the Bronx presents a one page comic book that breaks down the GannonGate basics in a simple, snappy format that any Wal-Mart Shopper can follow and follow-up on.

There's a lot of information embedded in the primer -- websites, names, quotes, googling suggestions, a decent amount of context, a good dose of subversion and maybe a wee bit of the subliminable.
