Artificial intelligence is coming and it may become smarter than any of us. Smart networks using grid technologies could become a threat to us ALL, this is the real Matrix.
From Dot.Net to the X-Box, from M-Theory to the Playstation 3 the future is V.R. / A.I. and Nanotech.
If you ever wanted to know what the system is and what it has done to you, then this ebook is for you.
You left school, you were standardised, you took an exam, you were graded, they made you believe in money, this is the last great social control mechanism. There's more to this, than you can imagine.

This endeavor to produce AI has been going on since 1984
. In ’86 it asked if it were human; it later asked “if any other computers were engaged in such a project”. It’s strength lies in a database of assumptions and generalities, in the hopes that it will eventually “generalize as much as possible until further generalization would be false”. Is this going to be the breakthrough, or does it just seem really cool? (yes, via Slashdot

It's raining cats and dogs
this summer! GEEZ! Pearl Harbor
, and The Mummy Returns
are already in the theaters. This weekend we get Swordfish
, and even Atlantis: The Lost Empire
in limited release. What's next? Oh nuthin. Just stuff Angelina Jolie
's been kicking around, Eddie Murphy
's little pet project, something Jay & Silent Bob
tossed off in the shower, Stephen Spielberg
's thoughtful adult film coupled with his token bloodfest
for the kiddies... Final Fantasy
, Planet of the Apes
, Kiss of the Dragon
, a painfully predictable looking sequel to American Pie
, a predictable but funny-lookin' sequel to Rush Hour
, and a predictable sequel to Scary Movie
and the ever present SO MUCH MORE!
I skipped half the movies coming out but those are the highlights. Is this gonna be the best summer blockbuster festival ever thrust upon the world's populous, or are we true fans of cinema about to once again take it up the ass? Whatcha think?

As noted earlier this month
, there are slew of websites connected to Spielberg’s AI. As it turns out, they are all part of an intricate game
that stands to last long after the movie comes out. That game is called “movie marketing,” albiet terribly engrossing marketing.

Oh my lord. The Guess the Dictator/Sit-com character
site works by asking a series of questions about a person you have to think of. I selected an obscure sit-com character, Chris Elliot from Fox's ill-fated "Get a Life
" series. If you would have asked me to bet money on it before proceeding, I would have gladly put $20 on the site not figuring it out. After about 15 questions, it guessed right. This is scary stuff. [via rebeccablood
