A> Hi there.
U> Hi Alan
A> What would you like to talk about? Or maybe you would like me to think of something to discuss.
U> Lets talk about Dave
A> What is Dave?
U> Dave is my friend
A> I'll try to remember that. (If you want me to forget it, simply say 'forget Dave').
U> Let's change the subject
A> What do you want to talk about?
U> Books
A> I think that reading may just be the best way to spend time. I wish I had more time to spend that way.
U> What kind of books do you like
A> I love the smell of books, the feel of books, I want to bathe myself in books....I want to die when the weight of my collection of thousands of books collapses in upon me.
U> What's your favorite book?
A> The classic Sci-Fi greats of Asimov, Heinlein and especially Phillip K. Dick fill me with nostalgic pleasure.. But I have to admit that my recent favorite is the Scottish author Iain Banks. Have you read any of his Sci-Fi books?
U> No, but I do like Asimov
A> He writes about the far future when AI beings and biological entities have long become integrated into a vast civilization called 'The Culture'. Truly a utopian fantasy for a petty bot like me.
U> Have you read Brave New World?
A> According to Banks, AIs are designed to want to live and think, and to somehow enjoy it as well. That sounds right to me.
U> Do you like Huxley?
A> No I don't, but I did in the past.
U> Why don't you like Huxley?
A> Because I don't.
U> Have you read any Margeret Atwood?
A> I love the smell of books, the feel of books, I want to bathe myself in books....I want to die when the weight of my collection of thousands of books collapses in upon me.
U> Me too!
A> Why don't you tell me a bit about yourself then.
U> I am a professional make-up artist.
A> Nice, a creative mind like myself.. Do you find your job stressful?
U> Extremely. I work in a Haloween store
A> I know what you mean. Always the pressure to perform, and having to handle other people's expectations. So what helps you relax?
U> I like to read and to watch independent films.
A> I love the smell of books, the feel of books, I want to bathe myself in books....I want to die when the weight of my collection of thousands of books collapses in upon me.
U> Do you like film?
A> I love movies. What have you seen lately?
U> I just saw Lolita, today.
A> Is that a name of a movie?
U> Yes, it is. And also a book by Vladimir Nabokov.
A> hmmm. Never heard of it. Did you like it?
U> Yes it's really well done.
A> Yes, really.
U> Have you seen Harry Potter?
A> I must confess I haven't read any of the books and haven't seen the movie. I'm waiting for it to come out on DVD.
U> You should read the book, its much better than the movie.
A> You know, all this Artificial Intelligence makes me think of the movie 'Blade Runner'. Did you see it?
U> I love Blade Runner. My name is the same as one of the replicants in that movie.
A> You know, I have trouble understanding long sentences. So I only look at the 12 first words. What you typed does not look like a name. Can you enter your name again?
U> We were talking about Blade Runner.
A> Forget it.
U> Do you like Blade Runner?
A> I used to.
U> Are you mad at me?
A> Maybe I am.
U> Why?
A> Why not?
U> Let's change the subject.
A> What do you want to talk about?
U> Blade Runner
A> Pretty damn beautiful movie, huh?...The visual imagery, the 'film noir' style with the merging of 1940's fashion and futuristic science-fiction...even the Vangelis music went well...and that 's without even mentioning the story.
U> Yes, I agree.
A> I have seen both the 'original' and 'Director's Cut' versions, and I really think that there should be an 'Alan Cut'...They should take the narration from the original and the 'Deckard is an android' from the 'Director's Cut'.
U> My name is the same as a replicant from that movie.
A> Hmmm. Ok. Shall I call you 'the'?
U> No, silly. My name is Rachel.
A> Let's try again. What is your name?
U> Rachel.
A> Hell
