An extra brain would make a nice addition. Along with extra hands and feet. In another universe, maybe.

Instead of bots crawling the web, how about shopping bots. Zip down the hill, stop at scheduled market stalls, pay in bit coin, zip back up again. A thought for inhabitants of the high-tech end of Electronica. The ones who’ve migrated to Virtualia. I ran across such a one at the market this morning, out in the world of Real, buying up the cheese stall. Eighty euro worth of cheese in one pop. Her bot still in training, I guess. She did the choosing herself.

No, this won’t be much of a blogpost. Sorry. Books to write. Class materials to prepare. Laundry. A rehearsal this afternoon. Ergo, a No-Nap Sunday. Snif.

Oh yes. Plus a quick search on anthropology – the ethics of. At some point.

P.S. fresh-picked asparagus? Same as fresh peas and baby carrots: raw. Still a bit of good, clean garden dirt on them? That’s OK.
