On today's show, we get a brief appearance of Brian After Dentist, but it's not as fun as we hoped, because the poor guy was actually in pain. So, Donald and I soldier on, discussing how Google TV is probably just plain done for, Net neutrality is under attack from all sides, and how college may be useless for entrepreneurs but it's a crucial nerd breeding ground. Plus, in the future, we'll pay for everything in Jobses. Depressing. --Molly

@Beschizza: Your one-stop google search string shop for sh*t journalism: “some analysts say”
Hola Buzz en Voz Alta,
Last year I attended a conference where Ray Kurzweil was a keynote speaker. While the group of health care professionals in the audience was wowed by his discussion on nanotech and his OCR demonstrations, I was severely distracted by his nonchalant attitude towards the singularity and impending robapocalypse (not directly mentioned, but certainly implied). I couldn’t help but imagine a wild-eyed Molly Wood (imagine Linda Hamilton in T2) interrupting the keynote to start rambling about Judgement Day.
Anyway, I confronted Kurzweil after the conference to shake hands with one of the proponents of our certain destruction and I have never felt so insignificant in my life. He gave me a look as if to say, “”you’re already dead and/or a robot and you don’t even know it.”"
Embrace or resist. I choose the latter.
