Something to Share

I just had to share this quote:

This is the dirty untold secret of The Matrix: Not that we'll be enslaved by machines who hook us up to a virtual reality to keep us pacified, but that we'll plug ourselves in voluntarily. If you don't think this will ever happen, you've obviously never played World of Warcraft (or known someone who has). The minute we can turn our body maintenance over to thinking robots while we frolic, sexy and beweaponed, in a fantasy world, we're going to lose about half the people on the planet to it.

--John Scalzi

This is an excerpt from an article written by one of my favorite authors, John Scalzi, about the technology he doesn't want to see come to fruition. He's an amazing author, a witty man, and I truly enjoy his insights.
