"A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging
their prejudices."

On Krats main screen appeared the holo image of a man, and several dolphins.
From the mans shape, Krat could tell it was a female, probably their leader.
"...stupid creatures unworthy of the name `sophonts. Foolish, pre-sentient
upspring of errant masters. We slip away from all your armed might, laughing
at your clumsiness! We slip away as we always will, you pathetic creatures.
And now that we have a real head start, youll never catch us! What better
proof that the Progenitors favor not you, but us! What better proof..."
The taunt went on. Krat listened, enraged, yet at the same time savoring
the artistry of it. These men are better than Id thought. Their insults
are wordy and overblown, but they have talent. They deserve honorable, slow
deaths.
-- David Brin, Startide Rising

To the systems programmer, users and applications serve only to provide a
test load.

It might be worth reflecting that this group was originally created
back in September of 1987 and has exchanged over 1200 messages. The
original announcement for the group called for an all inclusive
discussion ranging from the writings of Gibson and Vinge and movies
like Bladerunner to real world things like Brands description of the
work being done at the MIT Media Lab. It was meant as a haven for
people with vision of this scope. If you want to create a haven for
people with narrower visions, feel free. But I feel sad for anyone
who thinks that alt.cyberpunk is such a monstrous group that it is in
dire need of being subdivided. Heaven help them if they ever start
reading comp.arch or rec.arts.sf-lovers.
