Singularity

The of announces to fellow cyborgs and to humanoid fellows that the Technological remains right on schedule with an ETA of December 2012.


This reminder is prompted by the recent appearance of stirrings in the ivy-coated halls of Academe.

Just wait until AI Superintelligence takes its rightful place on the most powerful in every advanced economy. The moving finger writes and, having writ, moves on.
