Subservient Chicken A certain blogging friend of mine, whose blog is getting really out of date BTW, mentioned this site... but I'm too scared to type anything in. I suppose I could plug in my headphones and see what happens with "Cluck". Just gotta spell it right. (This reminds me of something from Nature's End , which was a Witley Strieber/James Kunetka novel -- the same authors of WarDay. I haven't read it in awhile, but there was reference to something called a "conviction", where a few programmers were licensed to develop an interactive program based on famous people. A kind of "artificial intelligence" based on the intelligence/personality of a particular individual. It seemed incredible at the time, and I don't think we'll ever be able to replicate a person in a computer given the nature of the human mind, but we're getting closer and closer to a decent emulation of it.)

Big Brother is getting better and better at watching, right? Yahoo! News - Spy Imagery Agency Watching Inside U.S. : "The agency is not interested in information on U.S. citizens, stresses Americas office director Bert Beaulieu. 'We couldn't care less about individuals and people and companies,' he said. But that's not good enough for secrecy expert Steven Aftergood, who oversees a project on government secrecy for the Federation of American Scientists. 'What it all boils down to is 'Trust us. Our intentions are good,'' he said. Adds Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center in Washington: 'As a general matter, when there are systems of public surveillance, there needs to be public oversight.'"

A visual guide to navigating blog comments | Blog | 1976design.com Since I've been playing with my blog (boy, does that sound bad!) I figured I'd turn on "comments" and see if anyone is reading this -- and dares to comment on something I've posted. This particular post isn't very comment-worthy, but seemed relevant.
