21 minutes into this video, Kevin Rose asks Google’s Vice President of Search Product and User Experience, Marissa Mayer “Is Google Skynet?” on behalf of someone who asked the question online and 182 people who voted for that question.
Her first two words are “Uhhhh.. Well…. :D”
There are a lot of people that think Google is SkyNet. What’s SkyNet?
Skynet (Terminator): In the fictional Terminator universe, Skynet is a computer software-based defense system created by humans in the late 20th century.
In the Terminator storyline, Skynet gains sentience shortly after it is placed in control of all of the U.S. military’s weaponry.

The first thing I did, back in the “200” days was make another account strictly for following the local NYC Twitterers (Yes, “Twitterers”. If they wanted their posts called Tweets and their users Tweeters, they should have named their app “Tweeter”. Too Late.). That worked well until basically all of the people I was following stopped using Twitter to make plans, favoring more private apps. Continue reading “How do you read Twitter?”
