This week I read Autonomous by Annalee Newitz, and for once I actually enjoyed something. As always I ask the important questions: can robots nut? What doth capitalism? When everything can be owned… can robots nut? I also talk about Ready Player One, The Rapture of the Nerds, Metal Gear Solid, conventions of the Noir genre, my snow-plow guy, the politics of the X-men, capitalist realism and whether robots can nut.
