I’m thinking my knowledge of Kurzweil and his ideas might be “old Kurzweil” because I haven’t been keeping up and I really should.

Did he get that job at Google? I’m _really_ behind on the news. I remember his Spiritual machines book around 2000 or so, and I remember him from back in the 80s with the keyboards and stuff. But I read somewhere that he’s doing something with Google now and I have some friends on the West Coast that go to talks that he gives.

[I’ve been on a no-TV diet for a couple of years and try to stay off the news except what I see here and there online. I live in a low-tech area of the country that’s lucky to get DSL]

I remember a guy different guy talking about Singularity in the early 90s on Usenet and I was involved in a few transhumanism forums and stuff, so I was kinda surprised to see it coming up again but I get all my news information from headlines on feeds these days. My knowledge of current thinking on Singularity is based solely upon what people talk about in forums and such.

[I did investigate Hawking’s thing a little a while ago because I wanted to confirm to myself that it was as ridiculous as it sounds, which it is]
