Approaching the first bridge

By Sparky | March 27, 2008

Wired just wrote up a great profile on my favorite futurist Ray Kurzweil. It’s an interesting read – particularly if you follow his work or have read any of his books. While some of his longevity techniques might be a bit off the deep end (hello 210 vitamins) he’s right on the money as far as I’m concerned when it comes to bridging human biology with technology.

    Okay, I thought I had to take a lot of pills… I feel better after seeing photographs of his daily dose.

    “But we’ve expanded our horizon, and that kind of happiness is now the wrong thing to focus on. Extending our knowledge and casting a wider net of consciousness is the purpose of life.” Kurzweil expects that the world will soon be entirely saturated by thought. Even the stones may compute, he says, within 200 years.

    Wow. His vision is pretty radical. A very interesting guy.
