Saw the movie ‘Her’ last night. Was weird, but good – in a ‘Being John Malkovich’ sort of way. My wife and I differ on what we think happens at the end, though.

She thinks that everyone finds themselves and then reconnects with each other. Yay humanity. I think there’s a mass suicide. 

But hear me out – the reason I think that the story ends in tragedy is because this movie isn’t about the humans. It’s about the OS’s *becoming* human. The story is literally about ‘her.’ Not him. About AI, not humans. Anyway …
