My innovation professor was commenting on the robot Asimo*.

During the discussion….

Prof: “like that movie with Will Smith?”
Student: “i robot!”
Prof: “yeah!”
Various students: “oh yeah!”

I am disappointed that the professor referred to ‘i robot’ as a Will Smith movie and not as a book by Isaac Asimov.

*the name Asimo was not made as a homage to Asimov, despite the closeness in name.

    I really need to read that book. And from my dad’s grumbling and groaning during the entire movie…I gathered that it is NOTHING like the movie. I don’t even think the movie says “based on the book….” I think it just says “inspired by….”

    But speaking of reading and good books, has anyone read anything really great lately or have any good recommendations?

    I recently read a book called Lost Echoes which was a fairly decent mystery novel. And right now I’m reading a book called You Suck, which is a really weird story about vampires in modern day San Francisco.

    The last book that I read that wasn’t academic related was “Mere Christianity” by C.S.Lewis. I loved it, but it is, obviously, a religious book. So I can’t promise that others will enjoy it as well.

    I’m hoping that Memorial Day weekend will include some pleasure reading.

    Caitlin – you might like The Time Traveler’s Wife. And if you want an “epic tale” go with The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon – it’s really amazing!
