Ever since I read Neuromancer in High School I remain fascinated by cyberpunk themes and motifs. There is a resurgence in the genre, but it is often regarded as tired. Today I was captivated by the HAL-like Watson challenging humans on the Jeopardy game show. Do we stand a chance? I wonder what will happen when the us vs them mentality ends and people just stick the computers in their heads and call it even.

The title of this post was taken from a hilarious sketch from the IFC show "Portlandia."
