Increasingly, our reality will obey the rules encoded in software, not of Newtonian physics.
Jennifer, as this piece sums up (correctly), it's about the rules encoded, not their implementation. Focus on the rules. Variables are defined at the start of the code so are easy to be changed, for better or worse.

I'd first like to say, Mike, this's tongue in cheek. I'm just playing with this. Don't think I'm accusing you of cowardice or anything by not going with it. Anyone would wonder if you did.
If Mike were to travel to Australia for any reason, and Gibson still had the desire, he could probably force Mike into a courtroom.
But Mike loves this !@#$! :-) It'd be fun. I am now foreseeing the TD Australian Nutbar Lawyer Junket that Mike's about to announce is selling to TD Insiders.

It'll be beamed straight to YouTube and TPB data storage CC-Y... licencing, James Comey's agreed to be MC at the closing night dance.
No, silly, there was a haystack in the way. It's a very sophisticated system of cron jobs running searches using picklists and weighting factors, all of which find hits all the time, and it can fill up your inbox in no time. With all the meetings reporting on what it's doing or will do, who's got time to view the results? We're busy here.
