The Future

This paper is really interesting to me. I wonder what will happen to people in the future as technology advances at such a rate as to out pace them. I deal with people who have no concept of a computer, much less the Internet, yet there is coming a point where, I believe, you will need to be connected. In that event, those people would become irrelevant, and they and I are on a level playing field. Now imagine a computer, sentient, aware, dealing with me in some future way. They would out pace me on so many levels. Unlike a lot of people, I believe that a computer, that technology will eventually be indistinguishable from the human mind. That will be an interesting playing field. There is one quote that I especially liked: One of the drawbacks of democracy is that people have an equal say regardless of their level of understanding of an issue. .
