Stephen Harrison stopped by today and figured we'd like his article because of the Star Trek connection. Hes a technology transaction attorney and trekker, yessss! another one! Heres what he wrote for us
WHY HELLO HAL..... I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU!
"The homage to "Star Trek" is well-deserved
You don’t have to be at all familiar with “Star Trek” to recognize "computer" as the right choice. But the Trek connection only sweetens the deal.
“Star Trek” televised the first interracial kiss. It inspired a generation of scientists. There are female “Trek” captains and admirals. The show predicted technology such as tablet computers, 3-D printing, sliding doors and holograms. As Stephen Poe has written, “The fact is, never in the history of any entertainment medium has there ever been a story, an idea, a situation, a set of characters, or a theme that has approached the magnitude or impact of ‘Star Trek."
|HELLO CORTANA ... HOW ARE YOU MAKING THE POLARITY|
OF MY TURBO OSCILLATORS
Curiously female AI "assistants" seem to reinforce the stereotype of women as subservients, Alexa, Cortana and Siri in Stephen's article but what I wonder.....
What would Space Odyssey's Hal9000 or Star Trek's Nomad have said to the Cortana A I in person I wonder?
Live Long and Prosper!
