    I'm watching The Twilight Zone episode The Brain Center at Whipple's on Me-TV. It was originally shown in 1967 but is still relevant 47 years later. Comments?

    Sounds relevant to me. But that's progress. :wink:

    Can't really watch this at the moment (at work), but if the theme is the obsolescence of man or even danger to man caused by automation, there are many earlier works that explore this very well. Two early examples that spring to mind: Karel Capek's 1920 play "R.U.R." (Rossum's Universal Robots) that coined the term robot, and Fritz Lang's 1927 German silent film masterpiece "Metropolis".
