Scott Rosenberg on "I, Robot"

My blog's obsession with "I, Robot" continues with this link to Salon's Scott Rosenberg entry about how the book made debugging fun. Scott also links to this article at Slate that talks about how the movie got Asimov's view of robotics all wrong; I think the Slate piece is really insightful in how it points out that Asimov's work on robots is optimistic, showing a faith in rationality that would save humanity, while the movie acts on feelings and takes a negative view towards reliance on technology.
