Cloud Computing: Do Google's Servers Dream At Night?

As reported in the online magazine Cloud Computing: Do Google's Servers Dream At Night? "That's a question raised by a fascinating short story just published by George Dyson, the author of "Darwin Among the Machines" and a well-known futurist. The story just appeared online in Edge, having not found a publisher in a fiction venue because it's too technical, and technical publications (including Wired) won't run it because it's fiction." To read the full story go to dysong08.

Let's hope the Google servers have not been getting any ideas watching HAL 9000 on late night re-runs of Stanley Kubrick's 2001 A Space Odyssey.
