Episode 12: The Apotheosis of Google

Apotheosis of Google

Apotheosis of Google

Really the power of Google is starting to be a bit scary and awesome at the same time and with Kurzweil it is just orders of magnitude getting more powerful and when the backend servers at Google can hold a conversation in English and can’t tell its not a human, how much longer before it decides it is a deity? the birth of AGI… this could be good and horribly bad at the same time depending on how you look at it.  🙂

Special Edition: Vote DavidJKelley for Humanity Plus Board of Directors

meme2.smallSeeing as its my podcast I figure a nice shameless plug (in the form of this special edition podcast) is in order for any one out there that is a member of H+ and why they should vote me in as a member of the board of directors in the upcoming election.  Besides the fact that I have the most real world practical experience, the most money, the most resources, my own full time staff and the most passion; the really important point is when I do something I actually do it (unlike the bulk of tranhumanity as a demographic, which is some what dubious to call it a single demographic as pointed out by the demographic study linked below).  If you want to see H+ actually do something for real then I have a proven track record of motivation, persistence and execution.  Vote David J Kelley (and listen to this special edition Podcast below)…

And in the last days Surface Pro shall come out and we all shall rejoice as we blindly follow the light and light of the world coming from Redmond or maybe we are drinking too much kool-aide. Pass me another cup…
