    i wish they would have presented that differently...
     
  3. Predicting the future, because that always works. IMO computing power will soon reach its limits and its limits are nowhere near where that video states it is.

    I'm not sure the vid set any limits.
     
  6. I never said that the video sets limits. The video says that computing power of a $1000 computer in 2049 will be greater than that of the entire human population put together and I am saying that the limit of computing power of computers will be nowhere near that.

    One more meaningless pile of crap that is supposed to influence us to think a certain way.


    Sigh.
     
  8. Did you know I saw that in 2007 and still don't care?

    Edit: I also don't care how many songs were illegally downloaded.

    Edit 2: This presentation has lead me to believe that we need a global population reduction of 2/3.

    Edit 3: it's 2;37 AM and I don't care.

    Wonder what their sources were. If they existed, that is.

    Vids like this make me angry. I just know that if my little sister saw this she'd be all worried, amazed etc.

    Btw, more unique information in a year than in 5000 years? First, what quailifies as "unique information", and, while we're caluclating, how many bits of information are we talking about? Information theory is a science that actually calculates the amount of information in a statement, and they MUST have used it's principles to come up with a crazy statement like that, I'd like to know how. But, "unique information in the world"? More info in a week's worth of Times magazine then one would know in a lifetime? Give me a break.

    I thought it was cool, and presented well.

    I never knew MySpace would be the 5th largest country in the world.
