MindBullets: News from the Future

"I'm sorry Jeff, I can't let you do that"
Dateline: 22 August 2017
Fine. I know it's a weekend and I'm not supposed to read my mail when I'm socializing with my family. But I really, really want to check if Larry has sent me that proposal.
It's one thing to have a trainable algorithm that can protect you from your destructive self, and I know I've given it maximum authority over my work-life balance since that heart murmur I had last year; but why can't I override it when it's important?
It's not as if I'm at death's door or wanting to jump out of an airplane. All I'm asking for is five minutes to check my mail. Is that so unreasonable? Cut me a little slack here, won't you?
I promise I won't have a second martini before dinner. I'll even go jogging with my daughter in the morning. Please, please just tell me if Larry has responded? It will drive me crazy if he's waiting for an answer. And besides, I'm bored.
I am the CEO of this corporation, after all!
"I'm sorry Jeff; it's for your own health. Your blood pressure is elevated. Now be a good chap and go and play with your kids - and not on the KinectDeck, it's got virtual email.
Remember, I'm watching you!"
