Forget about SkyNet. The open source Mozilla Firefox 3 browser is controlled by robots.
Don’t believe me?
In the address bar of Firefox 3 Beta 5 and you’ll see what I mean (or just click the thumbnail below).
The developers of Firefox (let’s call them robot sympathizers) have put all kinds of hidden messages about their plot for world domination.
Among them is one of Asimov’s Laws of Robots
A Cylon hint
As well as the line “Gort! Klaatu barada nikto” – which is a line from The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951). The phrase was used to stop the robot Gort.
And I bet you thought there was no link between the worlds of open source browser development and SciFi…

The guy that wrote the books comes off as a little weird and Colbert nailed him asking him the question that i’m sure everyone wanted to know…..why write the book and is the author a major perv?
Apparently the author was awarded a PhD for his effort on this book too.
Check out the best bits below…
