clay shirky has
educed a simulacrum
of boingboingist groupthink

by soliciting 'novel' futurist predictions
(150 so far, horribly nonnovel)

none of which connect The Singularity
with human wisdom
(at best hoping it will be left by
in our xmas stockings)

but robot wisdom
for the semantic web
will require slow painstaking
literate esthetic
of the motives that roil our hearts

and confronting the Cons
that enslave us
