Aren’t we going to loose something?..

If the future needs us — in a which way?..

… already for a long time humanity is the human-machine system, which only in this state can perform its functions. If we look at trends, we can see that part of this system’s information, which is being stored outside of human brain, is gradually increasing during thousands of years already — since the invention of cuneiform script — and we simply are closer and closer to that time, when this part of information in a human will become negligibly small.

But do not separate humans and computers — they, along with printed books, are parts of the single system, which can not work otherwise.

Yes, independent can be only that, what can reproduce itself. So, what reproduces itself now? Human? Not at all. Independently of the rest of humanity modern human will die in a few weeks. Reproduces itself the civilization — along with the necessary people, who are reproduced exactly as a machines. … Simply in a some step some elements of evolutionary system can become unneeded — how steams became unneeded some time before, — with the exception that those elements will become we, humans.

However, is it possible to stop progress? Definitely, total control over all planet is necessary for this.

(Translation from russian is mine, sorry for my english)

I would note, however, that i am more optimistic.

Everything will stop before robots will become humans and humans will become robots ;-)

However… we will see.

Miniature Earth — valid XHTML markup

BTW, to have XHTML validated page, it was necessary to change the code provided by YouTube.

For Miniature Earth they provided:

<object width="425" height="344">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/kIUCTbi_XZs"></param>
<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/kIUCTbi_XZs"
   type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="344"></embed>
</object>

Should be like this:

<object width="425" height="344" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/kIUCTbi_XZs"
    type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/kIUCTbi_XZs"></param>
</object>

Excellent site about CSS!

The very nice site for beginners — http://css.maxdesign.com.au/. A lot of information, examples, step-by-step solutions.

BTW, there i’ve found another good page, Floats, Margins and IE — examples and workarounds for MSIE’s problem related to rendering floats.

True Knowledge — “human” answer to questions?

True Knowledge Ltd launched a test service — True Knowledge (registration required, free).
Surely, I wanted to take a look :-)

First, I asked «How many seas on Earth?». I have got a very good answer:

So, it seems this engine understood me quite correctly, but it does not know the answer yet.

Next I asked whether Bill Gates is clever (sorry):
