My buddy Ben showed me this video by Time magazine with renowned futurist Ray Kurzweil, a guy who can tell you, reasonably, what the future’s going to look like. It’s not about flying cars and lasers, it’s about taking into account current technologies and the path these technologies have taken to get to where they are. In the vide above he talks about some of the advances we as humans will be making, like the ability to tell our bodies to stop storing fat, which is an age old survival technique that isn’t necessary for most people in most modern cities. I love hearing guys like this speak because it makes me excited about the future, though I’m sure there are a lot of people out there who find this stuff scary. Well, change is scary, but it’s inevitable.
