Some Musings...

What differentiates human beings from computers, no matter how clever, is that computers can do anything but enjoy nothing. I can get a computer to play Beethoven, but I can’t program it to enjoy it. (George Dennis O’Brien)

Future systems for a human global order must reflect our shared responsibility for the planet. (Václav Havel)
