The Adams brothers have been killing it numbers-wise w/ Dwarf Fortress the last few years. Good on them, it’s nice seeing folks succeed in this manner.
I’ve been fascinated with artificial life since reading about Conway’s Game of Life in one of my granddad’s copies of Scientific American. Within the last few years we’ve developed the technology to synthesize entirely new species here in the analog world. Craig Venter describes his Institute’s work on the first synthetic organism in a 2010 TED Talk.
