Thought this was pretty hilarious:  ... And almost on-topic, now that The Matrix and the limits of feline understanding have come up. :-)
And +1 to Matrix trilogy in general, I think it's way under-appreciated.
Oh yeah! I never noticed that connection.
There was also AgentSmith, which never came to fruition, but got some more people thinking about genetic algorithms. (Which I probably remembered because Wolfman just showed up today at the BerryBots forums.)
I watched The Matrix last night.
The premise is absolutely ridiculous, but the action scenes are okay.
I didn't like it when it first came out. I thought it was just a flashy rehash/mangling of a lot of cool sci-fi concepts from William Gibson and others, and the "battery" premise was a complete turn-off for me. But I dug the sequels, and eventually softened my criticism of the first one and now I really dig all of them.
Yeah, why humans and not electric eels? And electric eels wouldn't require a ton of processing power to provide a simulation environment...
I found Dark City much more gripping, and creepy in the 'what if it's actually happening?' kind of way.
