...if they're embedded in an eval block...

That is an actual option of the poll, in case you missed it.

Yup, I missed it.

The idea of a brain-backup is pretty common (at least now) in sf; offhand, I can think of books by John Varley, Greg Benford, Greg Egan, Frederick Pohl, and John Barnes, the webcomic Schlock Mercenary, and the shared universe of Orion's Arm. I didn't know about Desty Nova or Battle Angel Alita; when I'm not at work I'll have to wonder over there. I'm sure there are more.

Any Northeastern US area jobs? I'm currently unemployed.

    Charles Stross's Accelerando has one of the best kind of brain backups that i have read in a while.

    Whats even better is that its free: Accelerando

      I liked those books of his I've read; I'll give Accelerando a try when I get a chance.

    I'm sure there are more.

    For example, in Ghost in the Shell it is a recurring philosophical conundrum, blurring the lines of what it is to be human. This theme is particularly prevalent in the film releases.
