You know when I first saw those little animated robots that were pets or had some response to you in an interactive way I was WOW'd.
I use to watch a tv series that had a rogue electronic guy interrupt the television show and could interact.
Wouldn't it be fun to have someone who lived in your computer that could talk to you and respond whenever you needed to vent or bounce ideas around. No, I am not talking about Paper Clip cartoon tutorials from old Microsoft days. I am talking about a real AI.
But you know what would be better than that! A real person! Someone with history and experiences to share; which had thoughts and feelings just like a real person. The Ultimate computer companion...a real person.
This is what surprises me in today's market. We think it is all cute and wonderful to have electronic devices talk to us like they think, but devalue the real people who talk and share with us online as worthless? (Granted some of them don't think either. *smile*)
There is a connection that has been made. We can share and interact. That has got to be MORE awesome than a robot dog. We have got to have a greater attention span than just the trivialities. Trivialities get boring really quick. How long did you play with that electronic pet before the novelty wore off?
If we focus and do not skip by the chance online encounters that spark something inside and reach out via electronic media, are patience, forgiving and listen,we can make our whole planet a virtual valentine as we learn to love and appreciate the diversity that exists.
I just performed another wedding in world, a couple that met 15 years ago in one online environment had again met and united in a totally different online venue... so are now planning to take their unity into the biological avatar's realm.
I have witnessed that vows are no more valid in real life than in virtual if they are not meant by both parties.The same is also true in reverse. Virtual vows can be just as meaningful and just as valid as the people behind them wish them to be.
Happy Valentines to all my electronic connections that support me or hate me or send me supplies in Dragons of Atlantis.. at least virtual sweets are not fattening..Huga
