Of Good, Evil, and Glossophobia


Apparently, Dr. Wily’s fondness of public speaking is dependent upon his moral and ethical alignment.

So you're a good public speaker when you're bad and a bad public speaker when you're good, then?

Robosexuality – Part 11


Science will have unleashed hell upon the world when they create romantically oblivious artificial intelligences capable of friendzoning each other.

The Philosophy of Mega Man


I don’t normally use my blog to plug titles that I’m fond of, but if you have a comic book that deals with the ethics of creating weapons of war for personal gain…

…the moral dilemmas that come with creating sentient artificial intelligences…

…and anti-technology terrorists making bomb threats and discussing the danger of giving robots free will…

…and this comic book is not only aimed at children but also based on a 25-year-old video game, then you know you have something special and worth reading.

Seriously, go out and pick up a copy of the new Mega Man series by Archie Comic Publications. It’s the first title I’ve seen in a long time where the writer is as just as much of a fan of the characters as the readers are.
