What is…wrong?

I’ll tell you what’s wrong.

IBM made a computer to compete on Jeopardy!

I don’t know why exactly, but this is pretty upsetting to me. Jeopardy is hallowed in my mind, something pure, never to be tampered with.

Designing a computer to compete on the world’s best quiz show is just wrong. What fun is watching a computer spit out answers? I’ll tell you: none.

Granted, IBM’s computer, dubbed Watson, will be going against the biggest winners in Jeopardy’s history: Brad Rutter and my boy, Ken Jennings.

Still, I think it is a bit of an unfair match-up.

What’s next? Will Watson be telling us the answer to the Universe is 42?
