Good stuff, reading up on "A Test for Consciousness".

Any background info on these two individuals, out of curiosity?

Nothing more than what's in the links. There are like a handful of academic papers ("science") published every minute. It's almost probably impossible to stay up to date, even in your pick discipline.

Apparently, they are Great Names.

Thanks, Madness. I'm looking forward to reading these. Manzotti appears able to speak on a layman's level.
