The Singularity is Near

New Media Musings: Review of Ray Kurzweil's 'The Singularity is Near':
"The Singularity itself will occur not in some distant Buck Rogers century but in the year 2045. That's right — during our lifetimes (if you're 50 or younger). By then, he writes, 'We will transcend biology — but not our humanity.' He estimates that the nonbiological intelligence created in that year will be one billion times more powerful than all human intelligence today."

  1. I hope it comes sooner than '45. I'm ready for it now. If there was a surgery you could get to 'connect' you to the internet, I'd get it today.
