In Final Fantasy XI, “ZZZ” is interpreteted as being asleep due to a spell. It’s a most annoying state effect removing the ability to move and do pretty much everything except for talk and sit. Furthermore, the protective spell against sleeping, Barsleep, doesn’t do anything to prevent it from happening.

However, if you follow this link to ZZZ online you’ll find yourself at website that is very much productive at finding nifty things to talk about. This particular article talks about “The Martix” in real life examples and if you could possibly see it happening. I’m not entirely sure AI that will be unrecognizable from Human Intelligence is just around the corner, but maybe I’m just afraid of humanity making the wrong decisions when it comes down to classifyin AI as subclass. Either way, It’s an interesting read in the subject.

Note: I opened w.bloggar what must have been months after the fact to find this here. I’m guessing I didn’t have internet connection at the time.

Thanks for the link to ZZZ! I was just surfing to see if anyone reads the site after we've done some major overhaul work (with more to come). Stay tuned for a new look and hopefully crazier articles about tech.

If you or anyone else is interested in making the leap from blogging to a real public audience, please let me know. We're actively looking for tech-saavy people to help us provide more frequent content.
