Subby forgot one: BeWARE! BeWARE the ghost of Willis Ware.

He's the ghostest with the mostest. He's the ghost in your machine. Hunting Gremlins in a bus. But don't worry. He's a Good Ghost. He's on your side, ad PacMan's.

There were some really forward-looking and prescient men working on computers in the 1960s. JCR Licklider, Englebart and Sutherland come to mind. Contrary to popular belief, none of them had to go into space to develop their ideas.

"Every man will communicate through a computer whatever he does. It will change and reshape his life, modify his career and force him to accept a life of continuous change."

They'll get over it.

Etchy333: "Every man will communicate through a computer whatever he does. It will change and reshape his life, modify his career and force him to accept a life of continuous change."

But the problem is that not everyone can adapt at the same rate of change as well and not everyone equally at the same time.  This rate of change is increasing exponentially so only a limited number of people will be able to adapt with the changes and will likely be marginalized.

I think people with ADHD have the best chance of being able to keep up.

From TFA:

"There must be no personal data record-keeping systems whose very existence is secret."

"There must be a way for an individual to find out what information about him is in the record and how it is used."

"Any organization creating, maintaining, using or disseminating records of identifiable personal data must assure the reliability of the data for their intended use."


People at the NSA: "HAAAHAHAHAHA!! Oh, wow! Fark this guy, man! Fark him fark him hard! HAA!!"
