Freefall 1051

I'm too far behind the others. Good! Now I can quit this silly chase and go home because I have effectively no chance of reaching Florence first.

Unless, of course, the person you're chasing happens to double back.

OW! MY ALGORITHMS!

Why are you chasing me?

You have a seeker message from Winston. Any comm-net connected device that recognizes you is programmed to try to deliver it.

And when this message is delivered, you guys will stop chasing me?

Yes.

Then please give me the message. Quickly!

Perhaps it would be the safest if this message is delivered on the run?

Ms.? We really should run now.

We're not running. STOP!

They're not stopping.

WHAT ARE YOU!? PEOPLE OR AUTOMATONS!?

Must be people. Automatons can think and run at the same time.

Нео, останавливающий пули

We're not automatons. We can think.

But that's her point. By being able to recognize her as an intelligent non-human…

…we haven't been applying the safeguards we would use when interacting with humans.

Our intelligence has made us more dangerous to her than if we WERE automatons.

Excuse me? Could I please get my message from someone?

Shhh! We're discussing how to be more responsive to you.

Sam = non-human. Florence = non-human. Sam ≠ Florence.

Yes, but with only one sample of each, we can't tell if they are typical for their species.

These are some complex thoughts for a mechanical mind.

Though there are times when simplicity is appreciated.

Seeker message for Florence Ambrose. Press “P” to play.

Agreed. We will voluntarily apply human safeguards to the Bowman's Wolf.

Now let's give her the seeker message.

Message complete. Would you like to reply?

Why does it seem the faster our processors get, the slower our response times are?

Maybe we should download that new twenty terabyte patch to our operating systems?

Не знаю когда нарисован стрип, но довольно недавно для ОС Linux вышел “200 строчный патч”, повышающий отзывчивость системы для пользователя, но реально не ускоряющий ничего. В этом есть какая-то доля шутки. (БТРкО)
Стрип был нарисован в 2004 году. Патч ускорял работу ядра, насколько мне известно, для рядового пользователя это и не должно быть заметно, однако, должно было быть заметно на крупных серверах и суперкомпьютерах (Жирафик Рафик)

I got my message from the net.

Sorry. We'll do better next time. We've decided to work co-operatively.

Working together, we can ALL get the “message delivered” flag.

Think robotic chorus line.

Or quartette, depending on how many of us are around.

But I can't sing very well.

Then don't modulate, just do the carrier wave.

This has been an interesting walk. Winston's been delayed, so he's having an unusual time getting to the restaurant as well.

In a way, it's a good thing. Perhaps having a quiet dinner with a talking wolf will seem normal by comparison.

Train, departing. Train, departing.

Uh, oh. I startled these people by running in here. Okay, no sudden moves, sit down, big smile while being careful not to show any teeth.

Above all, try not to scare them.

Honest Sam

Helix, It's obvious being honest is where the big money is.

Paintball

From now on, we're going to be honest businessmen. “Honest Sam” is what they'll call me.

You've got somebody's wallet again.

This could be a problem. I have no idea how that got there.
