NY Premiere of the Singularity is Near!

The Singularity is Near... and so is the movie!! That's right, you can see it in your own backyard (assuming you live in NY of course) on June 24th!

Afterwards, enjoy tea and crumpets with Ray as he takes questions from the audience! Be there or be made out of outdated biological parts.

Ray responds to Craig Venter making artificial life!

Ray has something to say about Craig Venter making an organism whose DNA was designed on a computer (from May 20th):

This, of course, begs the question: if we design an artificial organism that turns out to be intelligent, will it be considered artificial intelligence? Stay tuned for the intriguing answer...

Ray's got some new material!

Apparently, when Ray speaks at the H+ Summit at Harvard on June 12-13th, he'll have some new material! Wonder if he'll have the one about the priest, the rabbi, and the human body 3.0...

Ray at IBM Impact 2010

Ray was at IBM Impact 2010 this past week, May 5th-7th. Watch his talk - he had a computer the size of the auditorium back 30 years ago which was a thousand times smaller and a million times cheaper - that's a 0% increase since he's been using the same quote for the past 2 years! j/k Ray, we love you!

On Some Panel

Hey everyone... News from Ray is scarce. I think he's bunkered down writing How the Mind Works and How to Build One (Viking, 2011). This is the best I got, from some panel on Dec 22nd (well, posted then - who knows when it took place...) Ray, please give us something new.. Please!

Update: Just watched. I think the clip is from 1982.
