One problem with living on an AI planet is the very real possibility that telepathy or techlepathy could begin to become a reality. If the entire planet is wired and conscious how do you maintain an individual mind in such an environment? If everyone's brain is wired to the internet how best to edit one's thoughts? This entire situation could lead to a dangerous level of conformity, as people suppress their thoughts and emotions. I can foresee that political or artistic conditions building up to explosive levels. So maybe the thing to do is let the revolution fly and see what happens. The crash might be well worth the wait.
