I was blown away when I first heard about the "singularity". Fascinating stuff... if not a little scary.

Didnt have time to watch the youtube although im sure it will be a great watch,

read first few lines of wiki so if I fluff apologies.

Yes I feel the singularity will come,

heck were just dinosaurs,

we might get lucky and populate other planets and spread etc but realistically lets njoy our short stay, maybe upload our thoughts to an android and make way for the Data's, r2d2's etc.

Den.
