I can't even trust computers to do the right thing with input specially
crafted for the program I'm using.  There is no way in hell I'm turning
it loose on a direct neural interface.  Software engineering, as a
discipline, is going to require a lot more actual discipline before 
neural interfaces become anything but fuel for a dystopian hellscape.

I'm not saying we can't get there.  I'm saying we're not headed in that
direction so far.
