Kurzweil means well but...
Kurzweil did not seem to me to be doing a good job of bridging the gap between current technology and his predictions. It is one thing to predict that technology will continue to advance and another thing entirely to try and guess where that advancement will end up. I'm sure you've heard this before but there are two types of people in the world. Those who can't predict the future and those who don't know they can't predict the future. I do not think that the current acceleration in technology can continue as "business as usual". I also believe we lost control of this acceleration a long time ago. The abbreviation WTSHTF (when the crap hits the fan) has become common on YouTube and for good reason. My prediction is that whatever happens will be a complete surprise.
