The Letter

Recently, I began working my way through Accelerando, by Charles Stross. It’s an interesting — and suitably hyper and strange — novel set during an emerging technological singularity. A free edition is available if you’re interested.

The advent of “Depression 2.0” has renewed my interest in the interaction of rapid technological advancement and global economics. Few meaningful conclusions may be drawn from the available commentary, however, save that humanity is notoriously terrible at prediction and particularly terrible at predicting changes in economics and technology.
