1. Hanson replies to my claims about his Tautological Fallacy.

2. The top two results for the Name Robin’s Creatures survey are Sentients and Intelligent Agents.  Background: Robin initially did a small Facebook survey.  The top two choices were Agents and Intelligences.  I bet Robin $50 at 2:1 in my favor that a larger, broader survey would put at least one different answer in the top two.  Upshot: Robin owes me $100.  If I were him, I’d probably just settle on Sentients.  While I’d quibble with the philosophical overtones, using the word “Sentients” will spare his readers a lot of pointless confusion.
