Yes, but because of that, most everywhere is hardened against that behavior... Again, releasing AI to the cloud meaning it can't be eradicated is a false idea.

"Cloud" as been bandied about so much over the last decade that non-techies think it's some huge data operation literally in the atmosphere.  All it really means "some server in a remote location."
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

Oh, you can bet the ranch I know that. But that is not how it will go.

You will be enslaved by your conveniences. The easy path, the lesser evil. Just like it is now easier for me to say, "Hey Google - Call @bigheadfred ," instead of looking up the number. Funny that... I used to remember maybe a couple hundred phone numbers in my head... Now that I am so electronically plugged in, I remember none. And so it goes. That is how they will get you.

I was watching a vid yesterday that had a chart showing how clinging to material things led you down. I'm not going to turn this into a religion thread so I'll leave it at that.

I don't really think of it as a "cloud". I've always thought of it as a hub. A data collection center. Like that huge one they have in Utah. Digis.

Right... That is what I mean... And it is actually a return to server/client rather than distributed networking. If you are logging onto your machine with a microsoft account, you are in a client/server relationship, Just like in the good ol days.

It is true though, and has been happening since indoor plumbing, through washing machines, and automobiles.... now most people are absolutely beholden to the system, and cannot get away. They don't know how.

This is just a refinement of that.

It is a hard, hard choice to unplug. It is easy to go along. And that is how the mark of the beast is delivered. Not by force, but by comfort and popularity.

I looked up Singularity.NET to see what they are about. You computer gurus can figure it out better than I can.

My grandma was telling us about when she first got a washing machine and how her shirt got caught in the wringer. Scared her bad. She said it almost got a body part. She wasn't kidding.

I remember my brother saying put your fingers here and then turning the crank on the ringer, hurt like hell! My brother always was a dick!

But all the same, she didn't go back to the wash tub, did she?

I can't remember that. I do remember her always yelling at us grand kids to stay the hell out of the Gravy Train.

It is pretty good on a cold winter's day... Like cereal, but with gravy.

A pocketful was a nice snack when one was out adventuring around their ranch. A lot less greasy than a pocketful of tater tots, too.

Yep. And it helps to stretch out the party-mix.

The only party-mix I saw at my grandparents is when grandpa invited friends over to sample his new batch of shine.

It ain't like that... I just keep 4 quarts in the cupboard for medicinal purposes. Though I am down to one full quart left... I have needed some medicine lately.  :whistle:

Now you got me wondering if I had an AI interface in my head if it could convince me I didn't have a hangover.

Hmmm...still wondering. AI implants that could stimulate or counteract certain functions concerning the BBB-Blood Brain Barrier.

I will never know. I will take the consequences of abusing myself over the implanting of anything.
