What do you get when you combine a sentient, artificially intelligent subway train (starring Emma Clarke, the voice of the London Underground and Keanu Reeves) with Speed and Titanic? It turns out you get "Sentient Subway," a hilarious Hollywood movie pitch that needs a bit of work on its title. However, having heard this whole pitch, I'm going to go out on a limb and say... it ain't half bad. We'd take a ride on it. In fact, we're all for sentient every mode of transportation: bicycles, cars, roller skates, scooters. Just not buses. Those things are filthy.
@aspiringexpatriate: I think that's just some launch day shenanigans going on while we shuffle things behind the scenes, but thanks for pointing it out, I'm going to look into it.
I heard that about Emma, and it seems a bit lame to lay off the voice of the Underground for something so trivial. I'd love to have her do daily announcements on io9, "Mind the Nanobots" and so forth.
