Tom Lee says we need to worry less about the over-hyped robot threat and focus more attention on the menace of pirates. I’m afraid, however, that as Tom ought well know, many of his precious Google Trends hits for “pirates” aren’t about honest-to-God, parrot-wielding pirates at all, but rather “intellectual property pirates” and other such metaphorical pirates. Why Tom would choose to act as a dupe of Big Content and continue to leave the nation defenseless against the robot threat I couldn’t quite say. Maybe someone needs to tell the world that his girlfriend’s a cylon!
