Nice to know several fiction authors were good at predicting how things would turn out. Sad that the latest bunch of writers have very few if any who are equally good.
However, please quit lazily going back to Ray Kurzweil for insights and quotes. He has repeatedly proven himself to be a self-promoting know-nothing, who constantly readjusts his "predictions" to a few years further in the future, without ever providing any evidence why he did so. Find somebody else who is more knowledgeable and evidence-based.
