Dreaming Of Electric Sheep In Eternal Sleep

R.I.P. John McCarthy. Read his proposal, all the while considering it was written 55 years ago. Bravo to a mind ahead of its time for trying to create minds ahead of their time.

In Person Is Better

Doing things face to face is better than doing things over a technological interface.

There is a distinct hierarchy that has been almost indisputable... until recently, according to a new British survey.

Before the internet...
1. Face to face
2. Telephone
3. Postal mail

Today...
1. Face to face
2. Telephone
3. E-mail
4. Social networking site
5. Postal mail
6. Video conference

Give it a few years and watch Apple bring video conferencing up the list with FaceTime. Poor U.S Postal Service....
