Racial equality

I've given this a lot of thought, and I have a surefire way of eliminating the problem of racism, once and for all. Not just racism, but race itself. We just need to get the entire world population together in one really big room. Then everybody needs to have a whole lot of sex with everyone else. Do this every couple months, for a few years and poof, no more race.

Digital art?

From a panel discussion on digital art:

“If art is about effort… Mozart composed most of his work in 1-2 days. I spent 20 years on this program. Celebrate *my* art!”

“How can you say your computer has a creative mind? Mine just adds and subtracts 1's and 0's!”

While discussing Deep Blue playing Kasparov in chess, and whether a really good chess move can be “artistic”:

“Chess can't be art, chess is just a game.”
“Chess is *not* just a game!”

– Quotes primarily from the creator of a computer program that will analyze a database of music and compose a new piece in that style. I forget his name.
