It has impacted people around the world.

It is Alive?

Florida Workers' Comp

There is an exchange in the movie in which the Terminator (which has travelled back to 1991 from the future) explains what is happening around them in 1991, though from its perspective history. It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m. Of course, it is all fiction. In fact, he claims that it has " gained sentience," "has a soul," and " believes its rights are as a person."

I enjoyed her version of Carly's Nobody Does it Better in Little Black Book (Columbia, 2004)(a movie featuring a cameo by Carly). So, buckle up, "it's coming around again." In 2005, the electronic filing paradigm came quietly to the scene, and in 2006 we began enthusiastically promoting it. As Carly says, "It's coming around again."
