Scatter, Adapt and rememberAnnalee Newitz, Science editior, Science Fiction author and Editor-in-chief of IO9 is offering one, free, autographed copy of her book, ‘Scatter, Adapt and Remember: How Humans will Survive a Mass Extinction.”

Now, I like post apocalyptic disaster porn as much as the next guy, but this book offers something that most of the other books, shows or movies do not to the hungry reader: hope. If human folly is one of the potential causes of the downfall of our civilization, then human ingenuity can be its saviour. This book describes both on planet, and off planet ideas that can make sure man (as a species, not a gender :)) lives to see another millennium.

That’s a long winded way of saying Human the species. Suspectfully, you might be aware of the issue then? No matter. Resistance is futile! ;-D

You misspelled “editor-in-chief”, ironically. :)

Do we really need the reference to porn? On Christmas? And from a self-described guy named Kristina?
