Fact or Fiction:
On the expectation that many of you will be in vehicles for long car rides over the holiday, it is a pleasure to recommend a book only available in audio format.  Level Five by William Ledbetter is a brilliant near-future science fiction novel exploring a host of important ideas like AI, nano-technology, and national security.  Two recently liberated AIs develop differing views on the role humanity should play in their future which launches a thriller-paced race to save the world.  This is a really enjoyable book and the author's view of future technology seems exactly on point and grounded in reality.
