Start planning now for the eventual takeover

If we are to learn anything from Science Fiction, it is this: a computer or collection of computers with near-human intelligence, designed by humans, will eventually turn against us and takeover the planet. Take HAL, for example. Or the matrix.

The future is here. We already have created a computer program that is a collective of all human knowledge.
We must start to plan now as to the methods we should have available in order to shut him down. Hackers should begin to design fail-switches and viruses, for example.

It is only a matter of time before we will have to deal with Evil Wikipedia.
