    Would you opt in to a kitchen robot?

    It seems we've figured out how to teach a robot to make pancakes.

    At some unspecificed time in the future, I'm willing to predict that something akin to Rosie from the Jetsons will be a possibility. Will you be one of the crowd to get a household robot to make your meals and wash your clothes?

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."

    I would if only because of being older...In the TV program "Humans" they have an older man that has a live in robot to care for him..In Japan they do I think already have this..

    Cook? No. I like to cook. If I wanted machine food, I'd buy Stoffers.

    Wash clothes? Yes. It would get K'Roe off my back.

    Wait until it is hack-proof, or you will be turning your life over to cyber revolutionaries.

    We used to fear it would be the gooberment, but it looks like it's gonna be independent self-righteous pricks with computers out to "fix" you by threatening to out your private life.

    Yes... I started W-10, and am now in the process of taking off strange stuff that sends information about my life to the world.

    Absolutely not!

    I don't fear the gov't doing this--they don't realistically have the resources to sort thru whatever they might find for every individual (and therefor I'm pretty well protected by the statistical unlikliness of any one individual being singled out vs an aggregate of data being used or a specific target being looked at) and they have very little benefit from using the information they could potentially get from most Americans cooking robot.

    I fear private industry doing this--your grocery store chain, your health insurance provider, etc. I mean, they already do this on a more limited scale that is fairly variable in its relaibility.
