Comic #2474

1 Spanners: Unfortunately this is an early version of the cyberspace software, without the enhanced safety features added later.
2 Serron: So this time around should be even more entertaining.
3 Paris: I died last time we were in cyberspace, in that "upgraded" version!
4 Serron: True. It'll be hard to top that.

Think about your experiences with software. About how unreliable it is, how it never does what you want, how it fails at the worst possible time, how it's basically a complete pain in the butt.

Now realise that software controls things like air traffic, hospital patient monitoring systems, and nuclear power plants.

2023-08-12 Rerun commentary: Also: think about software and your experiences with it. And then think that any sort of future "cyberspace" neural interface experience is going to be controlled by software. And ask yourself if you'd be happy to use that.
