Subject: Pooping robots

An amusing article.

Their title not mine is as follows.

"Quark Soup
Farting Robots and Shitting Ducks
The first of a new, biweekly column on science from the author of The Pearly
Gates of Cyberspace and Pythagoras  Trousers: God, Physics and the Gender Wars
by Margaret Wertheim"


some excerpts--

"Such a robot would have no purpose whatever except to keep itself "alive" by
stealing power, and to freak out Bill Joy."


"If he has his way, it'll be sooner rather than later, which will no doubt piss
off Bill Joy no end."

Capt.  Picard: "What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived,
after all Number One, we're only mortal."
Will Ryker: "Speak for yourself captain, I intend to live forever!"
