Somehow google is using technology but with which purpose at the end? Is ended the discussion that googles dominate the world? What we really see is what it seems to be? This is a solid philosophic discussion from years ago that should be retaken and be repatriotzed. We should start to think about what we see from now to preserv our future from ourselves. Man is man at all and have it instincts. That is a fate, a destiny of our own. And because of that fight we perish.

Maybe we should focus on people instead of computers. A new way of seeing things that are solid stabilishd and must be put down to new ways of seeing. Maybe we are so blind by our egocentric vision, that we can´t live out of the shell. This reminds me of living inside a shell, a song from Ghost In the shell soundtrack.

I don´t think it is naive to keep going in this way of computerarization. We build more and more computers, some get old, but what are we really doing? Are we build new networks? Will that networks mean some kind of neural connection in the future? And if we can connect to this neural network, what if we connect? What will be the pros and negatives of doing so? We should really start a discussion global if all those computers shattered by the way will come to call back “cobrar nos” in the future

Looks like the Euro crisis will carry over till next year and the year after. I don’t see where the improvement will come from in competitiveness and productivity in the fringe nations.

Hello. Great work. What a brilliant idea. To discuss the predictions and interact with readers. And this happened through the use of Google. Google is great.
