\"If computers are to become smart enough to design their own successors, initiating a process that will lead to God-like omniscience after a number of ever swifter passages from one generation of computers to the next, someone is going to have to write the software that gets the process going, and humans have given absolutely no evidence of being able to write such software.\" -Jaron Lanier
If anyone is in IT in an educational environment...I recommend checking out http://www.thejournal.com . It's a free magazine for Technology Coordinators, System administrators, and Network Engineers in education.
Just my 2 cents.
BTW...Great article that should catch the attention of any sys. admin. running MS OS.
