Episode 44 - Churchill as a Service

Look, another episode!

Look, another episode about copyrights!

Look, the EU is being silly again!  Is it censorship?  I dunno.  I'm sure Ken will know much more about this than I, because of his librarianosity.

What if you could make copies of people's consciousness?  Would you?  What about renting out someone's 'soul' to be used as, oh say, a university administrator.

Oh, Ken's daughter graduated from grade 8, congrats to her.

We hope you enjoy our ramblings.

Congrats, Ken's daughter!

The bit about AI doing things in the place of you put me in mind of Heinlein's Double Star, where an actor first impersonates and later takes over the identity of a statesman. Granted, that's about a person, but a person who sort of gets overwritten by another personality. Sort of creepy--and not very credible--but it does raise the same question of whether a copy is a copy when no one can tell if the person is not the original person.

(And now I have to click the "Please prove you're not a robot" box...)
