Re: David Brin's latest novel, and a TED talk
Did anyone notice Brin mentioned a new Uplift novel!?
All I saw is the interviewer speculating that this new book could be seen as an early Uplift book, and Brin agreeing, pointing out there's a subplot about considering uplifting chimpanzees and dolphins... as opposed to outright saying the book is meant to be part of the Uplift Universe.
