Well friends, I'm gonna level with you. We've been doing a little bit of mad sciencing on the side, and it appears some of the clones got loose and recorded an episode on Orphan Black and the Ethics of Cloning. It's a bit all over the place from what I'm told, but we thought it best to honor their plucky ingenuity and share the results with you, so that you can decide if the world is a better place with these strange creatures in it.

Recent appearances: Aaron's going to be on an upcoming episode of Podunk Polymath, but the end of the semester is coming and so more time for more appearances!

Aaron is also going to be on a panel at NECSS this summer in NYC discussing mutant ethics. Come do some nerdcore philosophy!

CONTENT PREVIEW: We're doing a "classics of sci-fi history" next week and reading Runaround by Azimov, the story generally credited as the first time the three laws of robotics are explicitly laid out. We'll discuss the problems with rule based ethics as a way to train AI.
