I had just been listening to a podcast about robots and one of the interviewees discussed that a) robots will make more sense if they resemble pets, not people, and that b) advanced robots will almost surely be used first for military applications. Then I read We3 and my mind was blown. Some gore might turn a few folks off, but the scientific and philosophical ramifications of a story like this are worth the whole 20 minutes it will take you to read it.
