I’m leaving tomorrow for a grand tour of Banff, then Israel, then Greece, then Princeton. Blogging may be even lighter than usual.
In the meantime, my friend Michael Vassar has asked me to advertise the 2010 Singularity Summit, to be held August 14-15 in San Francisco. Register now, because the summit is approaching so rapidly that meaningful extrapolation is all but impossible.
While I’m traveling, here’s a fun Singularity-related topic to discuss in the comments section: have you signed up to have your head (and possibly body) frozen in liquid nitrogen after you die, for possible Futurama-style resuscitation in the not-a-priori-impossible event that technology advances to the point where such things become possible? Whatever your answer, how do you defend yourself against the charge of irrationality?
