Yes, I put the chance of simple extinction for me
and everyone else at about 50/50. But I'm not too
worried: the upsides could more than make up for

Most huge risks do not have such a correspondingly
big payoff in the (small or tiny) chance that they
come out all right. But a singularity, or other
immense tech breakthrough, does.
