nice story your working on, maybe you can sell it.

absolutely no basis in reality though. If you understood how the internet is structured, you'd know that the idea that a conciousness could be 'born' or even produced artificially, as part of or working within the internet, is not possible.

The closest possibility would be a network separate from the internet somehow forming logic, or consiousness, and through its connection to the net learn/discover/control that way.

the thing you have to realise in all this is that computers are dumb. really dumb. no I mean really fucking dumb. unless you precisely say what you want, its not going to happen. so I think the idea of anything useful being 'born' from a computer is ludicrus.

Some freakin' university or some r&d lab creating it artificially is another thing alltogether, and completely plausible.
