Kurzweil interview

Ray Kurzweil interviewed on his new book, The Singularity Is Near. Good points on neuroscience, artificial intelligence, nanotech and the like. But man, I thought Age of Spiritual Machines was a bit wacky... Complete model of the human brain by 2030? Please. (Though the observation that brain scan resolutions are doubling yearly is interesting.)

I like the discussion about the relationship of power and intelligence of orgnizations. Thinking about Kurzweil's bizarre-sounding scenarios is good because in his world, humans and organizations start becoming the same thing... which leads to insights on the intelligence of normal organizations today.
