Ray Kurzweil's "the Singularity is near"
« on: September 08, 2006, 11:24:08 am »
I'm reading that book right now, apart from the Wheel of Time.
I was wondering if anyone ever read this book, and if they felt he is right. (I do, but im not done reading yet)

I haven't read his book, but it has been tempting me at the bookstore.

But I know the basic gist of it. How is it so far?

Well, it's pretty philosofic, and I love it!
But then again, my parents and friends are always complaining that im too philosofic, so I guess a lot people would consider it "boring".

But if you're in to AI, Immortality, Technological advancements, or just being able to predict the future, this is definately a tip.
