I attended the CSS Annual Meeting this past April, 2015, and decided to become an associate member. I enjoyed every session and look forward to attending other CSS events whenever my schedule allows it.
Surprisingly, every presenter dealt with topics I know at least something about. This would not be very remarkable except that every topic was also dealt with to some extent in a book I recently published called Diary of a Robot (available on Lulu.com). I brought seventeen books with me just on the off-chance that a mystery story (which includes AI, science, history, philosophy, politics, religion, and lots of British humor) might be of interest to meeting attendees. Surprisingly (again) every presenter except one took a book. The remaining books (but one) I gave away to attendees.
It has been nearly a month since the conference, and I was hoping that at least one of the sixteen people could give me some feedback, especially given the Meeting’s topics of discussion, and the fact that I listed the chapters that had relevant science in them. (The story is about a heck of a lot more than science). For those of you who got a book:
1) If you have read the book, please let me know what you think.
2) If you started the book but stopped, will you resume?
3) If you stopped but won’t resume, at what page did you stop and why.
4) If you have not read the book, please do so and go to Step 1.
5) If you will not read it, donate $25 to CSS (wink).
Please feel free to reply here in this Review topic. Or send me an email directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) putting CSS or DOAR in the subject line.
