Does the impression from the excerpt that I saw reflect what he said in the interview, Maria?Yes. His concern seems to revlove around the issue of self-replication, and the "evolution" of computer intelligence as a superior species, in effect (not his exact words). The idea seems crazy, except that many bright minds seem to be thinking about it.He also mentioned (at perhaps a more mundane level) that the technology isn't that far off which would allow high school students to engineer their own strains of influenza and do experiments on unsuspecting classmates. Crazy - yes, but we can't assume everyone is sane in this world. My own feeling is that technological advances can't be stopped, and hopefully we have time to make the right critical choices along the way.Mariawww.saloongal.com
