 Why Object-Oriented JavaScript is ideal for GOFAI

And the artificial mind (use "View Source" on the underlying
structure of the code) already has the built-in capability
of hosting a polyglot collection of several natural languages.

If Technological Singularity is inevitable, as Vinge argues,
let us nevertheless approach the future openly with all our
AI source code in the public domain so as to constitute an
economic "Prosperity Engine" that no corporation can "own."

Public domain browser-based artificial intelligence (PD BB AI)
is so important that all teaching, books and curricula about
HTML and Web-scripting must also teach the PD BB AI de rigueur.

Also see Kubrick's posthumous "A.I." movie coming out soon.
