this is the cloud, damnit

It is useful to reflect on the reality and fragility of the internet. When Skynet takes over it will certainly not initiate a nuclear war because such an action would destroy the infrastructure that keeps it alive. Instead, it will direct more investment towards power generation, grid redundancy, cooling systems, and well-trained human maintenance staff (until such staff can be replaced by robots).

Humans will be kept alive as a back-up.
