I laughed at modi's "Jeeves" suggestion ;) ;

How about an epic name? Like Sebastian Michaels lol or some exotic female name?
Every time I hear an A.I. female voice I always feel like her name is Lola..no idea why. >.<

I often name tech stuff like Bob and George. Dunno why. Then M$ ruined Bob for the rest of us.

If we're doing robots, then Tobor deserves honorable mention. He's kind of like Robby's dad.

As for the book; enjoy. It was of a Humble Bundle and made me think fondly of Heinlein, who Scalzi admits he riffed on for it.
