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?

    since a cyborg is, by definition, part biological, part artificial, were you being redundant, or did you mean something like 1/4 artificial (maybe his grandmother on his mother's side was a robot)?

    Seriously though, how about

    • Like Data, minus the bad makeup
    • He wanted to be a politician, what do you think?
    • Sort of, he was a Mentat
    • 'I prefer the term "Artificial Person" myself.'
    I just couldn't figure out how to work "Danger, Will Robinson" in there...
