      Okay, let's see...I am currently into my 2002 issues of Analog, so I should
      get to enjoy your story in...ah...2014.

      Could be worse...I am only into the 2000 issues of F&SF.

      On a more serious note Rob:

      As a writer of that arm of fiction that looks at the influences of
      technology on sentient existence, what thoughts have you, as the adult
      thinking writer, had about the kind of stories Search might have done within
      the framework of a weekly television series...had they tried to embrace the
      technological aspect of the format, rather then run away from it. Or was it
      too much to ask for 48 minutes (or less) of action adventure detective
      stories?

        Robert,

        Excellent, I avidly read and retain both action and SF, with a paperback collection in the thousands, to include all Ace first run Perry Rhodan through the end and a late 60's era set of all the E.E Doc Smith prints at the time. I usually read 6 or 7 books a month on the slow months. I have noticed your books on the shelf and was intrigued over Hominids, but it's been just off my budget list. I need to pick one up and check it out.

        It's really neat how an eclectic group we, in the Probe group, are.

        Paul

        Hi, Paul. I am indeed the science-fiction writer Robert J. Sawyer.

        SEARCH was a big influence on me (I was 12 when it first aired), as I
        discuss in this autobiography from Gale Research's CONTEMPORARY
        AUTHORS here (scroll down until you see the SEARCH logo):

        http://sfwriter.com/gale.htm

        And, in honor of SEARCH, I have an information theorist and vision
        specialist named "Kuroda" in my new novel WAKE (currently being
        serialized in ANALOG magazine, starting with the November issue, which
        is out now, and coming in book form in April 2009).

        Oh, and staring at me as I write these words is the terrific replica
        PROBE scanner I bought off eBay from group member Mike (kc8nqa) --
        I've got it positioned just to the left of one of my monitors. :)

        All best wishes!

        Rob

            Well, you'll get to my latest story by then, perhaps, but I do also
            have a novella in the November 2002 ANALOG (called "Ineluctable"),
            which won Canada's Aurora Award for best short story of the year. :)

            (I have had over half a million words of fiction in ANALOG, although
            most of it has been novel serializations.)

            As for what SEARCH might have done -- I actually think they did a
            phenomenally good job of portraying the notion of ubiquitous
            computing, and being always online, and having the world at your
            fingertips. Yes, Cam and his team served as human intermediaries, but
            the notion that a man walking around anywhere in the world could
            simply ask a question and have the answer delivered almost at once was
            indeed quite prescient.

            I also like to talk about SEARCH when I talk about human
            consciousness, because it's very much a Cartesian theater metaphor:
            Cam is the homunculus inside Lockwood's head, seeing what he sees and
            giving orders that he follows. Very cool. :)

              And, in honor of SEARCH, I have an information theorist and vision
              specialist named "Kuroda" in my new novel WAKE (currently being
              serialized in ANALOG magazine, starting with the November issue, which
              is out now, and coming in book form in April 2009).

              Oh, and staring at me as I write these words is the terrific replica
