> Wil McCarthy ... His views on the forthcoming (or not?) Singularity sre similar to my own: "And while the world on the other side of that event may look very different from the world of today, my personal prediction is that we'll still see ourselves in it, with habits and motives largely unchanged. The desire for comfort, for wealth, for entertainment and novelty and pleasure... these things will never go away. We'll just be richer, more powerful and wiser for our troubles. And what, exactly, is wrong with that?"
What's wrong is that humans aren't ready for prime time.
