I need your help developing a new test to identify machines and non-human entities.
Play “I wish” by Stevie Wonder. If you can stand completely still throughout, then you a non human unit.
I need some help to develop this playlist, which will yield more accurate data. We can then apply it to managers, helpline administrators, PR people and gallery front of house and others we encounter in our working lives. Then we can roll it out, as managers tend to say. Ooops.
Suggestions so far are :
- “Reasons to be Cheerful” by Ian Dury and the Blockheads.
- “Denis Denis” by Blondie/Debbie Harry
- “Cool struttin” by Sonny Clark
Then we can think about having some fun designing the hardware, no better place to start than the Voight-Kampf Test. I can’t believe that the Blade Runner sketchbooks now fetch over £100 a pop secondhand, I remember them being full of beautiful drawing by Ridley Scott. It was clearly a fully imagined place for him before he went near a camera.
