Extremely interesting article. Kurzweil, as a lot of you know, has long been known as a futurist.

This causes me to (inanely) remark about the future being unpredictable simply because it is the future…

That said, I myself have also thought that the rapid growth of technology and the human race will require some sort of self-modification beyond the slow change of evolution, due to pesiticides/pollution and the lack of natural controls on humans (with today’s medicines, poor genes hardly matter, as you can survive and reproduce with previously terminal genetic errors, and just about everyone has an equal chance to reproduce — not just the biggest/fastest/strongest/smartest).
