Technology with a mind of its own!
I'm a great lover of technology and i'm constantly keeping my ear to the ground to hear about the next big thing! One technology that has generated much interest in me is Nano-Technology. I'm impressed by the usage of organic material to develop the technology, but mostly, it's the size of the technology that has sparked much bigger interest in me. You can have a chip the size of a rice grain packing enough power to rival the much larger Pentium 4 microprocessors of today. Heck, the chip can even be smaller than that. L'Oreal has performed trials of including nano-technology in their creams, giving these creams the ability to intelligently target an area of concern. You could rub the cream on your hand and it would go directly to your hair and straighten out that dandruff problem. How about that hey??? But, there is the other side to this great technology. Because this technology is based on organic material, this means it can regenerate itself. Imagine a microchip spawning other microchips...one chip spawns 10, 10 spawns 100 and so on and so on. What happens if there's a malfunction of the technolgy and it regenerates its own code to fix the malfunction. We end up with millions of microchips out there with minds of their own. It can fix problems when it feels like it, or kill when it feels like it. I foresee a lot of issues here! Greater than our little minds can comprehend. As much as I hail the genius of all those scientists who developed this technology, I also fear the possible outcomes! I suppose that's why Nano-Technology is referred to as "Black Dust" in some sceptical quarters! My 2 Cents Worth!!!
