 I don't know if Outloading has been taken, but your scenario is almost the exact plot of the Odyssey 5  TV series by Manny Coto. It was quite a good series and closely echoed the threads we had on here around the time it was written. Which at the time lead me to believe that Manny was an extrope list lurker ;o)

If Manny is still around, I would love to know how the story continued. Its a shame the series was cancelled.

Subject: [ExI] outloading, was: stealth singularity

Does anyone know if the term "outloading" is already taken?  Google doesn't seem to know about it.
I propose the definition for outloading is where an emergent AI decides to stay stealthy for at least a while after the singularity, expands upward and outward from earth, keeping this planet and her lifeforms intact in carbon form.  The AI imitates them in a sense, creates avatars that look like the enormous carbon globs, acts like the carbon globs, but no one will be tempted to fall into the identity paradoxes, for the AI does not attempt to invade the brains of the carbon based lifeforms and reproduce them.  Rather it watches and copies their outward actions as closely as possible.  The outloaded software avatar does not feel like us and is not us, any more than Tina Fey is Sarah Palin.
