In their own image

December 6, 2006

Having spent too much time today dealing with SPAM comments and trackbacks, this quote from Stephen Hawking struck a chord.

I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We’ve created life in our own image.

This one from Pablo Picasso is also apposite

Computers are useless. They can only give you answers.
