Coming Soon: Does Siri have Buddha-nature?

I'm not sure if it matters, but my recent experiences with Siri have led me to suspect that what we humans possess as "intelligence" might indeed soon be available from non-human, non-animal devices, or so it seems. Not that we can impute much to this regarding awareness, but what we humans see as the domain of humanity might be changing yet again.

Jordan,
Yeah, there's an inevitable backlash. More than a few technologists I know refuse to even have a cell phone - there's a bunch of Star Trek Dr. McCoys out there.
