OK, I was considering Michael as an "insider" as he was speaking in a
manner that presumed this.

Anyway, I must say, this display of egomania and unpleasantness on the
part of SIAI folks makes me quite glad that SIAI doesn't actually have a
viable approach to creating AGI (so far, anyway...).

Although I know SIAI promises to safely implement my volition for me ...
based on the tendencies displayed in this dialogue, I'm not sure I trust
the organization to do so ;-)
