Really dislike having to sit through some video to find out a topic.

It's 'just a tool', in the same way a firearm is 'just a tool'. The scary part is 'who will be using this tool, and why?'

If this computing power were put to work for the betterment of humanity, then fine. But it will be put to work to extract profit, for surveillance, and to compel passive compliance. I think that - on balance - it will be put to work to the detriment of humanity - the erosion of our humanity. Firearms aren't scary; firearms pointed at us are scary.

so you are saying that given the choice we are a pack of arseholes that want nothing better than to take whatever advantage we can over each other

sad .. but probably true in most cases of people who desire power in one form or another
maybe its time for a more inclusive mass involved law making system

the greedies are no longer culling each other as they used to and have ganged up on the happies
