Our minds on media.

Musings on the effects of media on cognition.

Found on Slashdot

I found this clip on slashdot and thought it was worth re-posting here. I despise Clippy and his little Banana3000 rip-off counterpart on the Mac. I thought this was a great reply to some folks questioning the fact that Microsoft apparently patented a method of accessing data used by emergency services. Hi! I’m Clippy!

You seem to be in a firefight with Muslim extremists! Would you like to:

  • Hit the dirt?
  • Blow away Mohammed?
  • Ask George Bush why 1317 days after 9/11, Osama bin Laden still hasn’t been captured, even though we’ve given the Iraqis “The Gift of Democracy”?
  • Surrender your essential liberties for a little temporary security?
