At least in the books I've read so far.
I trust them more than any flesh and blood character, that's for sure.

but that was a nice interview. It made me want to read the Culture novels. Are these machines really benevolent? I cannot imagine how that would have been written without feeling sinister in some way or other.

And I really need to get my hands on Cloud Atlas. It has been recommended to me by virtually everyone.
Death to the Regressives of the GOP and the TeaParty. No mercy for Conservatives. Burn them all at the stake for the hateful satanists they are.
