in reply to poll ideas quest 2010

Was Stephen Byerley a robot?

  • No
  • Yes
  • We'll never know
  • Half-half cyborg
  • The difference is unimportant
  • Stephen who?

Update: added the cyborg option.

Update: explanation: the "unimportant" option is for people who believe in duck typing, so this is a programming-related question.

Update 2010-12-02: done: Was Stephen Byerley a robot?
