    To my mind a lot will hinge upon how willing they are to explore, much in the way that the book does, how non-human yet still human an Envoy is in terms of their mindset / behaviour.
    If Wisdom is the coordination of "knowledge and experience" and its deliberate use to improve well being then how come "Ignorance is bliss"

    Re: Altered Carbon - a new Cyberpunk series from Netflix

    Just about to finish the first book, and have watched the first couple of episodes today. Not a bad so far, shame about the Hendrix. Will probably read neuromancer for the xxxxs time for a bit of a break. Do think the book is trying to be too much like neuromancer and the TV series is trying too hard to look like blade runner. Surprised that my wife is enjoying it.

    Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D has gotten significantly better since the first season,and the last three seasons have been very good.

    That sounds promising - reviews have tended to either be positive or negative,so I will need to watch this and see how it pans out.

    Re: Altered Carbon - a new Cyberpunk series from Netflix

    Finally got around to watching it - I think the nudity and violence is a bit too OTT at times,and it seems to quite inspired by the Matrix in all the fighting,etc. I almost expected Arnie to pop out at some point!! Well constructed world though and I liked the ending.
