Quote from: Bender on April 05, 2012, 01:27:36 PMI think the whole idea of the exponential growth of technology is amazing, and one that I think is an elusive obvious. Every piece of technology that is adopted becomes the backbone for the next innovation until there is a new paradigm shift.It's interesting that people still talk about some things like they won't see them in their lifetimes. Nobody thought we'd be able to clone an animal in our lifetimes a short while ago - same goes with the genome project. I think Kurzweil is right, in just 15-20 years I think we'll see an enormous leap in technological advancement. I find it funny though, that some people are actually bemoaning this (even though it's pretty much inevitable). "Only rich people will benefit" - the stats prove otherwise, there are fewer living in poverty BECAUSE of technology."We're going to lose our humanity" - Yeah, well if you're so worried about that then why aren't you living in a forest, hunting and foraging for your food, because thats what the human body was essentially adapting to. And while you're at it, you can have your 25 year life expectancy back. Sorry, I'm a bit of a futurist geek myself. I'll probably be picking up The Singularity is Near soon :)
