White Blood Cells of the Internet

We never have to worry about the terminator scenario.

You know the one where the machines/internet gain sentience and decide to wipe us out.

The reason is simple.

Most of us wear little devices on our hips and when the internet is in pain we come running to fix the problem.

It might be your blog or your e-commerce site. Your home computer or thousands of nodes on your network at work.

You might see the problem when you check it hourly or when you get an Email on your Blackberry.

If you are in IT/IS it is a direct correlation but even in other areas of business from a certain twisted perspective it can be seen that the purpose is to add more and more working and efficient computing power to the entity that is the internet.

The end result is the same. In the greater part of the “developed” world we spend a huge amount of time and effort expanding the nervous structure and thought patterns of a nearly un-encompassable organism.

Why would it ever look at us in anything other than a positive manner.
