We're in trouble...

A couple of things I ran across this weekend convinced me that humanity is in trouble:

First, Swedish Embassy opens in Second Life

Next, from "Google Blogoscoped" a top 100 blog that focuses entirely on the Big G. In a post titled "The evolution of search engines"

"...There may come the day when the search engine will not be programmed by humans anymore. It has become a self-sufficient, self-learning, all-encompassing entity. It may even be able to tell the future; not through magic, but by careful scientific analysis. Neither will it be understood anymore by its own developers. It may be merely superficially controlled, and physically monitored to ensure a healthy machinery.

More and more, we may get the feeling that we are working for the AI, as opposed to the AI working for us. It may query humans to gather more data..."

And when I went into my loo yesterday morning, and saw this, I knew the end was nigh:


  1. Nice post good for a little laugh this morning. And I've been worried about Google for sometime... they are running some pretty strange operations surely. Why else would they have started buying all the unused fiber that was laid across the States a few years ago. CIA, Google, fiber = Skynet? maybe

    And have you heard of google boxes?

  3. We are all under State Control anyway so why bother?

    Put your hand on heart and say, "I was born a free man, I am a free man"
