I love the flexibility of working from home, but after 3 days or so I start to miss the folks at work.

So now in this extended, forced, WFH for such a long period, you feel like you loose connection.

Like you say, humans are social beings, even the introverts!!

Thanks for the tip David! I actually have both of the books at home – but I haven’t read either of them (yet). I bought Metamagical Themas in a used book store a long time ago – looks interesting now that I look at it again!

]]>From what I remember, “Gödel, Escher, Bach” has some interesting discussions on consciousness and AI. However, a lot of it is spent on Gödel’s incompleteness theorem, but explained for people with little background in math or computer science. To be honest, it was kind of a slog, especially because I was already familiar with the math and logic behind Gödel’s proof, and the non-math version of it felt overly verbose and tedious. “Metamagical Themas” just has interesting discussions of AI-related topics, and I feel that’s where Hofstadter really shines.
