You HAVE to listen to this

29 January 2006
On friday night, those of us who had our fill of Chavez' monotonous quotations and  flirting with Cindy Sheenan, were prevented from leaving the premises until the end of his speech (which could have been... who knows when). According to the heavily armed National Guard operatives blocking the exits, there could be a saboteur among us compromising the Comandante's security (later we heard from an insider that it is just standard procedure). This is after Chavez' passionate condemnation of the Bush admisnistration's international politics. I'd like to take this oportunity to quote Nietzsche when he said that "Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster".

Should we allow artificial intelligence to manage migration?
