Helen and I started watching two shows on Netflix last night. The first is one that I’ve been looking forward to for awhile – Netflix’s adaptation of Richard K Morgan’s book Altered Carbon. The second is Riverdale – a reimagining of the old Archie comics, but set in the present day around a tale of mystery and murder!

Both Helen and I read “Artemis” by Andy Weir recently. I enjoyed it, although Helen felt disappointed by what she considered a major flaw in the plot. The book is set 70 years in the future. Yet, the technology feels like present day tech. There were hardly any robots on the Moon colony. The primary interface for the computers seemed to still be typing. The main protagonist drives around and delivers mail. Her father is a welder.
