Maybe Ray Kurzweil isn’t as loopy as some people say he is…the NYT has seen some industry reports that suggest we could have nanotech computing within a decade. It’s all part of that luscious exponential curve that arcs us ever faster towards the singularity, when we will transcend the limitations of our ‘meat’ existance. Possibly.
