did you happen to see the article in the ny times today about the experiment with brain implants that have a cable that plugs direct into a computer and the subject (tetrapalegic) controls the cursor with his thoughts?

I enjoyed this story a great deal. Hat's off to Mr Antonelli.

Despite trying to fight it, at times I had images of that old Disney movie, Tron , running through my head as I read the various computer as character sections. But the two stories have little in common, as far as I can see, other than having scenes taking place from the viewpoint of living software.

Very thought provoking. The reality of humankind merging, at least in part, with artificial intelligence, is becoming ever more a reality.

In my view, if humans don't incorporate software as part of our adjusted bodies, we'll soon become little more than an inferior pet to our own creations.


Nice to please the public.
