  • A comment on Talk: Heather Knight: Silicon-based comedy

    Nov 14 2011: Everyone needs to LAUGH, it's a great human expierience....
    This is a learning type BOT, that could learn about YOU, and make you LAUGH...
    WOW, do I see a future here
  • A reply on Talk: Heather Knight: Silicon-based comedy

    Nov 14 2011: Yes, I totally agree.
    A George Carlin robot for a certain typeof crowd or mood. But don't stop there.
    We would want a Johnny Carson, Bob Hope, Jerry Lewis, and all of the proven comedians.
    This could be an amazing comedy act at the local comedy club, or even a variety comedy
    TV show. Like a cyber puppet show....from children to adult levels....the body movements are great too.
    Keep up this fabulous work....Now thats entertainment.
  • A comment on Talk: Sasha Dichter: The Generosity Experiment

    Sep 27 2011: SOUNDS LIKE CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME.
    AS IN THE U.S.A. FOR ME.
    BUT THIS CAN BE DONE IN ALL COUNTRIES.
    BY THE CITIZENS OF THEIR OWN AREA.
    THIS IS INSTANT AND DIRECT WHERE NEEDED.
    IT SHOWS A GOOD EXAMPLE TO ALL.
    NO ONE NEEDS TO GO HUNGRY.
  • A comment on Talk: E.O. Wilson: My wish: Build the Encyclopedia of Life

    Sep 20 2011: Yes, of course we need to save and protect everything we can of the ecosystem. Yet we will not be the ultimate destroyers of the planet. It will be the weather, a virus, or an impact by an asteroid.....which has happened many times in our past already.
    Life happens....we will deal with it....it is, what it is.
