This is a rare mix of both the wonders and the dangers of our fast approaching future. It's got some of the most cutting edge insights on technology and science, but also sobering examples of how they've already gone wrong.
Some folks see invention with no downside. This strikes me as naive. Some folks think we should then attempt to ban or strictly limit the invention. This strikes me as just as naive. This author is the first time I've read someone who sees a path forward with increasing innovation guided by deep wisdom--dealing with the dangers without giving up on the progress.
