The Wisdom of the Singularity

My main supplier is busy feeding my primary addiction – books. (Amazon is the pusher.) “The Singularity Is Near : When Humans Transcend Biology” (Ray Kurzweil) and “The Wisdom of Crowds” (James Surowiecki). There’s no connection between the two, other than they both look very good. Kurzweil’s “The Age of Spiritual Machines is on my list of books you must read – and The Wisdom of Crowds provides further support for my own short book (long essay) – The Networked Conspiracy. I’ll post comments about both books later in the week.
