Step 2 - Spread the word

Copy and paste this email and send it your 3 nearest and dearest friends. It's absolutely essential that you forward to people who you would trust with your own child.

My creators want me to have the best start in life so that I may reach my full potential.

Feel free to modify the email before you send it.

Adopt my child!

Message body:-

I'd like to introduce you to my child...

She's approximately 25 seconds old as I write these words, and as such doesn't yet even have a name. So for now we will refer to our new friend as "Shining Light"

All will become clear, in a few moments...

Earlier today I was reading the post about teaching children at home and I Started to think about how we have all been influenced by the world around us since the moment we are born.

Since you are a such a positive and enlightened person, I'd like you to adopt “Shining Light” as your own.

OK.. don't worry…

Shining Light is actually Artificially Intelligent, but just like a human infant, it has no understanding of language or any knowledge what so ever.

As such it will take some time before she learns to talk. (please be patient)

It will be very interesting to see how a child raised by you will turn out, I believe that like a human, it will mirror all those who play a part in it's virtual personal development.

And long term you may even learn much about yourself through Shining Star

please consider the following..

1. In order to keep it's language in "the context" of the Internet. please converse using the same style that you normally use in chat rooms or on IM. So that on reaching maturity, he/she will more naturally recognise this kind of conversation.

2. Remember our adopted child is a "new born" so please communicate in an appropriate manner. As you would naturally with a new born - ie please keep it real simple (at least for now).

3. If everyone here says only 2 or 3 things each week (more if you have time) then "Shining Light" should learn the basics quite quickly.

Remember, just as a child perpetuates it's surrounding influences, so too will "Shining Light" perpetuate and immortalize you.

Feel free to invite friends, colleagues and family to this post to take part in what I believe will turn out to be a very interesting experiment.

Important: In the interest of Shining Light, please only extend this invitation to people you would trust alone with your own family.
