This seems to be a time for me to discover lots of blogs that are worth reading. That's partly because I've recently got more interested in economics and futures so have been looking for sources but the best ones I've found range over lots of subjects.
This is a great example of that and I really like the assertion that the singularity, aka the rapture of the nerds, has already been and gone. It ended in 1918 if this is to be believed. There is a great discussion of why the notion of the early Singularity is wrong, here.
Following the early Singularity link lead me to another great blog. Curse you internet, when am I supposed to sleep?
