My blog turned two years old a week ago. I don’t really know how I feel about that. On one hand, it makes me happy to know that I have been able to stick to blogging for that period of time, but on the other hand… I don’t know. More people are reading this now. I didn’t really have an audience before. Not that I have a big audience or anything, but people are aware that this blog exists. That’s sort of a freaky thought that I have about my little corner of the Internet.
One thing I will say is that the quality of my posts has improved a lot, even though the frequency of them has decreased. I always say I’m going to post more, but then things get in the way… I don’t know what to think, so my only goal for this year is to post better content.
Our world is changing. And I absolutely hate it. I hate the fact that we are moving towards a world where robots will coexist with the human race. I hate the factt that we are developing more and more androids and more and more robots and more and more artificially cognitive machines. That also happens to be why I hate science fiction. SF kind of forces me to think about those things. Most of the time, I avoid thinking about it. But sometimes, just sometimes… Ugh.
Why would you want to have robots that look, act, and speak like humans? Wouldn’t that be creepy? What if someone tried to hit on a robot? What if that same robot responding that person’s advances? Like, really, imagine going on a first date with a robot. Do you want to do that? Think about it.
