Ready Player One is truly awesome, indeed.

also from the Young Adult section, Little Brother by Cory Doctorow (possibly relevant to current events.

The Uglies series is pretty good, also.

Driftglass! You thrilled me with your Blackhawk reference at the end of the podcast.

Been a fan since Stan Mikita laced 'em up.

Liberal and a pucks fan...does that mixture work?

Why not !!

Do pucks and liberal politics get along?

Why not..!!!

Wish you would worry about things like the NSA and Booz Allen keeping their grubby mits off your podcast and tweets, not to mention all the business contacts, unpublished innovation, potential patent, copyright, trademark material infringements now available to who knows what parties, and not obsess about the hypocrisy and annoying "tone" of Mr. Greenwald. Wasn't it you who warned about "when they start to complain about your tone? Are people allowed to change or to modify? Wasn't it ~you~ who used to be a fire breathing big-city progressive, now transformed into a bourgeois suburbanite? Just sayin'.

Tom Huck -- It is not about *tone*, Huck, it is about attacking people who are not the villains of the story.

You can't understand how Greenwald is inviting responses to his ad hominem accusations by uttering his ad hominem accusations? I mean, golly, why isn't Driftglass staying on topic? This is hard to figure out.
