    Ray Kurzweil speaks to us! 

    So on Wednesday I sent out e-mail invitations to the real-life people in our show. . .a couple of hours later, Ray Kurzweill (!) e-mailed me back with this response:

    Thanks, Jocelyn and Kimberly,

    It sounds very interesting and I’m flattered to be included in the way you describe. Unfortunately my travel schedule won’t allow me to be there but if there is a video or web archive of these events I would be interested.

    Best of luck with the performances!


    Followed a few minutes later by:

    If you can send me a land address I’ll be happy to send inscribed copies of my recent books. Best, Ray

    Kurzweil Hologram! But really, look at the bottom link. . . 

    Brief video of Kurzweil appearing via hologram at a conference:

    Video advertisement for the technology, called “Teleportec” with super creepy futurism narration!

    BUT, even COOLER is actually Cisco’s live virtual presentation of their “Telepresence” technology!

    The Singularity is Near – the Movie 

    At the Onset of the 21st Century, it will be an era in which the very nature of what it means to be human will be both enriched and challenged as our species breaks the shackles of its genetic legacy and achieves inconceivable heights of intelligence, material progress, and longevity. A true story… about the future…

    Kurzweil: Human Immortality and Virtual Sex Only 20 Years Away, Thanks to Nanobots 

    “Nanobots, able to repair and preserve our organs indefinitely, are just around the corner…and if we want to go into virtual-reality mode, nanobots will shut down brain signals and take us wherever we want to go. Virtual sex will become commonplace.”

      “And in our daily lives, hologram like figures will pop in our brain to explain what is happening.”

      Just what I need…

    Kurzweil AI. Net 

    An amazing site with more quotable articles than I can possibly recommend, and a live “Mind Exchange” chat forum for discussing them.

    KurzweilAI.net features the big thoughts of today’s big thinkers examining the confluence of accelerating revolutions that are shaping our future world, and the inside story on new technological and social realities from the pioneers actively working in these arenas.
