the future doesn't need us
"Accustomed to living with almost routine scientific
breakthroughs, we have yet to come to terms with the fact that the most
compelling 21stcentury technologies genetic engineering,[url=]michael kors femmes[/url], nanotechnology and robotics (GNR techs) pose a different threat than the technologies that have come
before. Specifically, robots, engineered organisms, and nanobots share a
dangerous amplifying factor: They can selfreplicate. A bomb is blown up only
once but one bot can become many, and quickly get out of control. Much
of my work over the past 25 years has been on computer networking, where the
sending and receiving of messages creates the opportunity for outofcontrol
replication. But while replication in a computer or a computer network can be a
nuisance, at worst it disables a machine or takes down a network or network
service. Uncontrolled selfreplication in these newer technologies runs a much
greater risk: a risk of substantial damage in the physical world."
Every now and then I will come back to particular landmark and classic articles from the last 10 years. Why? First, trying to keep it actual in the blogosphere, also for younger readers :) Second, to investigate the current status of the articles. Third, to spur discussion on overarching views on key topics affecting all of us, privately, commercially and/or collectively. The above quote from the article by is in my view a reason for concern. This elaborate article touches a broad range of key themes, issues and topics, among others: democratisation of new knowledge and technologies (think open source and WWW); the fragility of human made systems (social and economic systems as well as software), privacy versus collective control/transparency, open source versus restrictions on key GNR knowledge, commercialism versus public good, ethics and politics in scientific progress, human nature related to truth seeking, the evolution of evolution, space exploration, happiness in general (Dalai Lama) and the interactions of values like liberty, equality and fraternity and many many more. With quotes from people like Carl Sagan, Arthur C Clarke, Danny Hillis, Freeman Dyson and others.
What strikes me is that Bill Joys' concerns surrounding the rise of GNR technologies probably have been faded or ignored by mass media due to the landmark WTC event with more traditional technologies. Nuclear, biological and chemical technologies/weapons are in focus right now due to the rise of different terrorist groups around the world. This is unfortunate in my belief as his concerns are still valid and even more so due to the technological advancement in GNR technologies since the year 2000. Pandora's boxes with unintended consequences seem to have enough historic precedents considering the atomic bomb since World War 2. The key here is that we humans might make ourselves obsolete in this century and that selfreplication within GNR technologies is a cause for concern.
Well, in a way the future doesn need us (people), but only in some stuff. It will take time before everything automatic and instant without people having to move so much. Right now, people can just stand and wait for their computers or (some) software to fix themselves. If in any case they don know how to solve the problem, they rely on online IT support.
On that bit about computer networking, it true that it can be used for that kind of "destruction", but as time goes by, solutions have been developed by computer networking experts, and these solutions are being taught to the computer networking support people who will relay the information to us.

reason for concern: refuse, difficult to take a taxi! This is almost the FuZhou Railway Station area taxi normal, although the Fuzhou transport department this phenomenon repeated regulation,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], but regulation after refusing the phenomenon still happen frequently.
this car passenger waiting point

She waited for about 5 minutes on the road, finally stopped a number for the AT7792 min taxi, on the train,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], the driver said, 50 bucks Guanya square to,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], do not play table. Miss Yang annoyed, she told the driver argued, said taxi valuation is playing table,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], do not play table is illegal. But the taxi driver does not eat this set, let Miss Yang off. Miss Yang wants to take out a mobile phone to his license plate number and service, to shoot down complaints, can not think of the taxi drivers have threatened, if you dare to take photographs on her mobile phone at. Miss Yang is helpless to get off, had to fight with others.
the day before yesterday at 10 pm, reporters came to the train station square, because heavy rain during the day, and some sections of landslides, causing some train and bus delays, gathered at the square in front of thousands of passengers, due to not hit the car, some visitors simply walk to the north two ring road along the taxi.
