What we have here is a massive data grab that can be mined many ways by who knows how many people. Bush set the infrastructure, & Obama doesn't see any reason not to use it. The head of the IRS has met with Obama more times than every other head of the IRS combined has met with a president. we already know Obama has targeted his political rivals, & the American media does a big yawn at this new scandal!!!!!!!
Since Ted Kennedy is gone, may they'll put it up there.
I you people are missing the point. The original movie was about this fantasy world inside the computer--which at the time was a great imaginative way to see it. You could also look at the original movie as a VR world in which artificial programs help people accomplish tasks. If I remember correctly, the master controller was on a main frame and was a AI. All this is within the realm of possible for imagination.
The way I saw the new movie was like this: Flynn was trying to create a VR world to mirror the one he experienced in the original movie. Every program in there was an AI. Some created by him in his search for creating the perfect world, and another group that came into existence. The movie was about the continuing war between those who want to control freedom and expression and those who wish to express their freedom and express themselves. It mirrors our battle in the real world with balancing the rights of a freedom with the need to maintain an ordered framework to express that freedom without causing anarchy and chaos.
