I love listening to Vernor. He's sticking to his 1993 prediction that there will be a Singularity before 2030.

We'll see. I do like his arguments and reasoning. But I still say never because it messes up the program. Think

Hey Jim, your idea about messing up the program is intriguing. Your ideas in general about the program being limiting regarding a singularity, overpopulation, nuclear holocaust, etc. is fascinating. However, what if the program is to transition from a biological platform to a machine platform and see where it goes? Just thinking out loud, lol.
