Ray Kurzweil, futures forecaster and inventor of the music synthesizer, says human beings have an expiration date. We’re getting closer and closer to our machines, and some day we will be machines. In other words, it won’t be enough to have computers on our wrists, we’ll want them in our heads, or to be our heads. Once we let them do all our thinking, we won’t be human any more and we will no longer have any trouble selecting the right tie to go with our suit. We’d like to register our protest right now and invite others to join us just as soon as we’re through with our role-playing video game.
