science fiction horror movie as documentary

I caught this article on Slashdot and everything about it screams one of two possibilities: (a) it's the end of the world as we know it, or (b) it'll never work.

I don't know which possibility I like more. (a) is practically the foreword to a science fiction horror novel set in 2020 and (b) is mostly due to: "They're going to put a bunch of component parts in a solution and just wait for cool stuff to happen? Do they think that will actually work?"

Ah, but it's all FOR SCIENCE! (Quick! Heroic pose!)


Mmm, yes, similar reaction from me. They still haven't made true artificial intelligence yet; I expect artificial life to be a similar chimera.
