Monday Morning Commute: Nanobots In The Digi-Air

Monday Morning Commute.

Don’t breath too deep, friends. You see, they’re done with the fluoride in the water. That’s the old tip. They’ve moved on. Now it’s the nanobots. In the air. Infesting our cortex-bits.

Has anyone ever really shown you that you need it? If you didn’t believe you did? Eh? Oh — me? Off my meds? What is it to you, buster? Fuck you! No — no. Please come back.

In it, a young boy named Ender Wiggin is taken to Battle School where is gifts as a strategist are revealed. His talent is used in the ongoing conflict with the “buggers” – an alien race who won’t stop fronting on the human race. It’s “sequel” Speaker for the Dead, is one of the greatest books I’ve ever read. Period.

After decades of planned adaptation, the book is finally coming to the big screen with Hugo‘s Asa Butterfield as the lead, Gavin Hood (Tsotsi) directing, and Roberto Orci producing. The crew has started a Tumblr so we can all follow along with the production at home. This excites me more than Taco Tuesdays or Pizza Mon-Fridays.
