guess the world doesn't want to be eaten...

My favorite quote from Cory Doctorow’s excellent Lockdown: The coming war on general purpose computing.

This stuff matters because we've spent the last decade sending our best players out to fight what we thought was the final boss at the end of the game, but it turns out it's just been an end-level guardian.

Must read.

PS: to avoid being unnecessarily cryptic, the subject comes from Marc’s Why software is eating the world¬†from a few months back. Ok, ok, Marc was talking about something slightly different, but I can’t avoid making these connections. Anyway: light up, world. Embrace the Singularity! :-)
