Last night I attended a lecture/talk by Ray Kurzweil. For those unfamiliar with him, check out these links here, here and here. As I’ve been telling my friends and those on the internet that care – it was an awesome talk! Many factors contributed to the talks awesomness.
Although I feel the talk was great, inspirational and thought provoking, I did walk away with many questions and obviously, critiques. I find the points I am about to make can be loaded and provide opportunities for discussion and debate, so I’ve decided to separate my thoughts into several posts rather than in one long essay.
The questions and critiques I have are:
- “Technology increases mankind’s intelligence”
- The Law of Accelerated Returns and our natural resources
I might add more topics, I don’t have my notes in front of me :P
