I probably won't like a novel about objectivism (or any other -ism)
and not much else, nor would I like a philosophy manual in the form of
a novel (or any other form), and now very intelligent people say it is
also shallow and not very serious.
I hereby propose that we adopt "Who is John Galt?" as the only
official contribution of objectivism to the hackers-il cultural
tradition, and drop the thread.
