run on sentience

monday's post has disappeared! and so has my followers list.
it's not on TSMGO blog -- once i accidentally posted mine on there.
All i said on monday was that i am more interested in the question "is the roomba a sentient being?"
and not so much if we should wish it well.
who would not wish well to a roomba?


  1. Me.
    He was aimless. He accomplished his tasks only because he was given no time limit. He was like the monkey with a typewriter. Finally he blew a gasket and went off with the garbageman.

  2. some might think such behavior more explainable in a she-roomba, esp going off with the garbageman. unless maybe roombas are like snails.
