Stephen Hawking, the famous scientist, rise warnings about the possibility, in the future, that an Artificial Intelligence may rise at the point of total human kind destruction.
Even if that’s not the same argument, I’ve written an essay about our society’s strong dependency about machines and technology.
Our possibility to evolve is strictly related to technology availability and even the capacity to generate a next gen technology is provided only by the use of a previous generation technology.
If you want to read the essay or simply to contribute to this weblog and the articles it provides, you can purchase for about 1$ the ebook: Human Machine dependency directly from your Amazon store.

I was remembering about the summer 2013. It was middle June, right after the first Edward Snowden’s revelations about the massive surveillance activity of NSA against alleys but also the same US citizens she has to protect. In these days there was really some kind of revolution, all the media were involved in the World biggest disclosure about control technologies and, in reaction to this pacific revolution, we have gained knowledge and safety. Government infrastructures are more safe, citizen computing is more safe, cryptography is spread as never before but what about now?
We live in a society ruled by machines. Technology help us, repair us, extend our senses and capabilities, in other words: technology augment our life.
But are we able to renounce to all of this? Or we are totally dependent from machines?
A little essay, analyzing how modern society needs technology to evolve or simply to survive.

Ok, just relax a bit 😀
I’ve discovered a great app for my Lumia: Phone Basic.
Phone Basic it’s funny! It recreates a repl similar to the ones of Commodore 64 or other 80s Basic powered computers.
You haven’t the machine control and memory interactions of these computers via assembly and co… and basic still lacks of many important instructions but it’s freaking funny 😀 and also useful in some cases.
Definitely if you want to program something with your Lumia, for the glory of old times… give it a try!
I’ve made with 16 code lines a simple… yet slow… yet LOL… matrix console like screen saver 😀
I’ve attached the source code to this post, so you can enter this code yourself and upgrade it… obviously I’ve released the “hand printed” list xDD (for the glory of old times… I’ve already said that? xD ).
