In a couple days you're going to be able to find our Technology Issue, which has a lot of smart stories in there about sciencey and computery things that'll get your mind's rainbow wheel of death spinning for a while. We wanted to show you just how seriously we're not fucking around by featuring our interview with Ray Kurzweil first thing this morning, but how fantastic, we're having technical difficulties. (PS: all fixed. Enjoy.) Why don't you go over to VBS, where today Kurzweil's telling us more about his vision of the Singuarlity—a point around 2045 when computers will acquire full-blown artificial intelligence and technology will infuse itself with biology. His theories have all sorts of supporters, detractors, and critics, but do you even remember what life was like before three-year-olds had cell phones and you actually had to remember facts instead of relying on the internet? That was only ten years ago. If Kurzweil is right, we'll have supercomputers more powerful than every human brain on the planet combined within a few decades.
