Bring on the Singularity

Reason Magazine (which I’m finding to be an increasingly good online read lately) has an interesting interview with Vernor Vinge about the Singularity and related topics. Very thought-provoking stuff. The whole concept of the Singularity is, my wife assures me, crazy; but it’s a fascinating idea nonetheless. Anyway, if you, like me, eagerly anticipate the day when the stars are right and our AI overlords will take over to make things right again, go check out the interview. And if you’ve not read Vinge’s A Fire Upon the Deep or (my favorite) A Deepness in the Sky, hasten thee to a library and check ’em out–they represent some of the best sci-fi I’ve read in years.
