Thank you to Zach and Micha for putting together this month of discussions. It has been rich and interesting and I have learned a lot. I am looking forward to further conversations especially about bio-nano-materialisms. The latter was certainly, for me, the most inspiring set of posts (so especial thanks to Pinar Yoldas, Heather Davis and Ricardo Dominguez). I'm writing now from a Speculative Theology conference in Liverpool and there was much talk here about the queer media art month. Robert Jackson who works on Turing and contributed to the discussions was especially pleased to have found the work of Homay King and Jacob Gaboury and I would also like to thank them for their contributions in weeks one and two.
