They say in five years the Internet may become a concious entity, capable of interacting with people and thinking for itself.
Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Will the Internet get obsessed with conspiracy theories, porn, and gory photos? Will it be benevolent? What about it’s opinions on world politics? What if it staged a coup?
Ah well, still five years before we have to worry about it becoming an electronic entity. I wonder what kind of personality it will have? Will it put out podcasts? What if it decides it’s Jesus? Dear lord, what if it is Jesus?
In other strange news, military trained killer dolphins escaped into the Gulf during Hurricane Katrina. I couldn’t make this up if I tried.
