Super Soldiers .. .smart or just bots?

Ok, so we have a soldier that has capabilities beyond belief ... Armor, weapons, self sustaining capabilities, training, and most of all - other super soldiers. Where does the line cross from "Robot" to "human" if at all? Where does the next gen network slip out of reality and into a parallel fighting force? Are rogue Robots not far behind? What happens if networks are compromised - and they will be - where do these soldiers stand in terms of allegiance? What happens when one of these battle field vehicles is commandeered by enemy super soldiers?

Are they then capable of doing soldier work as humans? Or are we seeing the end of the human on the frontlines of the battle field? Drones already rule the sky and satellites have been "eyes" on the inside for some time.

When the future combat systems take over, who is in charge? Anarchy? Or Big Brother?

Inauguration 20009 #inaug09 !!!! DC, January 20th.

Everybody had a camera. No where did you go and not see hands stuck in the air recording everything and anything. Smile! Can I take your picture? Where are you from?

This #inaug09 was a full frontal New Media outing (again!). Caveat: It's level of interactivity was minimal *20% immersion possible at best. We witnessed very little contact (organization) with attending citizens on the ground (Citizen interaction was minimal.) Events appeared to be very much about pomp and the moment.

There was very little intrusion from law enforcement although obvious around an entire perimeter. Witnessed 1 military defensive action. People were cut off from food, water, security and on foot. Metro's were jammed and shut down (Metro Station) with little or no way to figure out what was true or which stations would be affected. People trusted "hearsay," "rumor", and good will. Their seemed to be much hearding going on as people would stand in lines for long amounts of time only to realize the line went nowhere. There were no Information booths for people to help you get around. No vendors of anything. No people on loudspeakers. Nothing. Very minimal police / gov / "visible" presence.

Cell phones must have been jammed on a "haphazard basis" as they would go up and down in terms of signal. It could not have just been capacity - their appeared to be no reason why a citizen would call at the same time unless you base it on speaker impact possibilities / potential. Some of the speakers would generate very little interest to begin with. As well, since there was "no" information available to people walking around, nobody knew anything unless they had a “connection” to the outside. The White House and surrounding Mall is on physical / technical lock down.

ATT signal dropped for a full hour period (1:00pm) and txt messaging went down fully.
Update: ATT Service works again (- 2:22pm) and I was able to "phone" out of state.
txt msg not working.

Web access and in turn IM had been disrupted. It seemed blocked and sudden.
