Machine Intelligence? I too was surprised that no one in the Slashdot crowd has mentioned the possibility of this being a Machine Intelligence world. SciFi writers have speculated that diamond structures/networks would be the most efficient environment for computing. When MIs emerge (I don’t like the term AI – if it is intelligent there is nothing artificial about it), the ultimate ecosystem would be a diamond planet. Obligatory Wiki Refs: The Science - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nitrogen-vacancy_center The Speculation - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matrioshka_brain The SciFi - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computronium Any obligatory Simpsons Quotes?

Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
