    Not exactly scientology, but still. Haven't these people ever read science fiction? When you download your consciousness into a computer what happens if there's a power failure? Will there be automatic downloads every time to go online? Better yet, what do you do with the 'medical waste'?

    They are right on the point that technolgy is growing amazingly fast, and there will be things we can do within a few years that no one ever serious considered. On the other hand, the first time I see a cloud shaped into someone's logo I'm going to stop looking at the sky.

    Printing a building? That I'd like to see.

    Biocomputers. Microsoft and Monsanto will engage in eternal lawsuits about who owns your genetic sourcecode.

    mmm, they already do that here in buenos aires , and they have been doing that for as long as i can remember.

    Well, not exactly printing but painting ads on it, pretty much the same, isn't it? If you want i can get some pictures for you.....

    But, then, I've read Richard K. Morgan's Takeshi Kovaks novels.
