I don't know if you've heard, but recently there was a story going around the web about how we will be able to download (or upload, technically) our brains by 2050. But we've already got that. I am committing myself and my memories to the internet via livejournal bit by bit. By 2050, all I will be is bits in this machine. It's quite possible that my livejournal and any subsequent variations will contain a greater catalogue of my thoughts and memories than my mind will be able to recall unaided. Is this immortality? Is an ELIZA-like emulation of your thoughts any more so?
