SETI@home is old as hell, so the idea of "open source" render farms is at least as old. Those "massive farms of GPUs running 24/7" don't scare me at all. In fact, both Siri and Google's voice recognition kinda suck. When they try to control us with this, or it is revealed that they send all their data directly to the government, I suppose we will have an incentive to act. Otherwise, wake me up when they do something interesting and new.

Recruiting people with no programming experience into a degree called "digital entertainment and game design" is a little suspect, in my opinion. You all know the story: a young kid loves playing video games, so he wants to become rich writing the next blockbuster. But alas, this requires programming skills, so instead he changes his major to sociology...unless, he is attending a trade school with no liberal arts majors, in which case he just walks away with huge debt.
