The Singularity May Be Near...

But I fear my natural demise is nearer.

Top Futurist, Ray Kerzweil, predicts how technology will change humanity by 2020:

"We now have the software of life (our genes) and the means of upgrading that software. How long do you go without updating the software on your cell phone? Not long: it does it itself every few days or weeks. Yet we are walking around with obsolete software in our bodies that evolved thousands of years ago. Within 10 years, that will change."

I hope his time line is accurate.
