Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2020.337 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It’s short but exciting. It tracks the cancer back to its source and organizes a major response.

Con: Something that small isn’t going to have RAM that’s insulated well enough to have liquid nitrogen flow over it. It’s not going to be intelligent in our sense at all. It’s not clear that a cancer could actually evolve a response to nanobots either.
