Exactly. I'm currently trying to write a screenplay that would show the
potential awesomeness of uploading, in a post AGI world. Fact is, I died a
little inside each time I searched for a good plot, because any problem can
be answered by "the AGI would solve it...". And I don't want to remove the
AGI, that's a major point of the project. But for a movie to be good, there
must be huge stakes in the plot, at least for the main character. So yeah,
that's a real pain...

Ideas are welcome. ;)
