Absolutely Incredible
30 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I very highly recommend this film. Even though there is much conjecture about how technology might affect the future, there is also much that is discussed that is already true, and is actually affecting our lives today.

The fact that the rate of speed of technological advancements is doubling is a fact.

I won't say anymore, except that if you like to think, and you want to know what our future on this planet might hold very soon, and you want to have your mind blown, see this film immediately.

I loved it.
