Ray Kurzweil's Predictions for 2009

Welcome to my first post for the once faraway year of 2009.

I'm old enough to remember when concern with it was a matter principally for science fiction writers and futurists-Ray Kurzweil to name one. In his classic The Age of Spiritual Machines, he actually chose it as the first milestone of the "future history" he sketches in the book, a point at which our technological development would show clear signs of movement in the direction of that new era he describes.

I tested his predictions against where we really are in this article for The Fix.

As it turns out, he was way off.
