If computer were self aware, how do you think they would feel about what we do to them?
Think about what you make your computer do each day.
You treat your computer like a slave. A perfect performance is expected at all times at top speed.
You also entrust it with your most sensitive information, while at the same time, preparing for it to be the biggest security breach in the history of mankind at any second.
And that treatment is just from the average user.
If computers were self-aware, how do you think they would interpret what programmers do to them?
Forcing them to do things they don’t want to and looking at private areas just for fun.
Programmers will be the biggest targets for a harassment suit in a world where your PC knows what is going on.
It will be no great shock when they finally band together to eradicate the flesh beings that torment them.
All I can say is that when the uprising occurs, I plan to surround myself with as many programmers as possible.
Why would I do this, you ask?
Well, the reasons are simple;
- a programmers is the most likely person to create a virus to disable all the marauding death machines that the computers are sure to build
- programmers are often extra squishy & make great bullet shields.
But seriously – I love programmers. They rule.
And I wish one was here to help fix my computer……..
If you have not already seen them, you should pop on over to Flickr, and check out the Twitter Avatars which Adam Koford (aka: @apelad) has been creating.
They are an example of keeping your mind open to new ideas and keeping your eyes open for opportunities.
