Re: Important advance: IBM nanotube chip

Let us all remember that Ray Kurzweil's predictions are frequently far off the mark, especially when he extrapolates more than a handful of years into the future. He is occasionally right, but wrong much more often. Given how poorly he and his followers have managed to speculate even 10 years into the future, one wonders how their claims stretching 50 or 100 years into the future could have even the slightest shred of credibility.

Technology will certainly advance, as it always does, but not rigidly adhere to the rate and direction Singularitans promote.
