Frankly, one of the best things I believe that has been done for society by major media in a long time.

Singularity by 2045?!? Well, Ray Kurzweil thinks so and, honestly, who else should you trust on this question. Finally, real immortality :).

Finally watched the full Google I/O (3h:25min) keynote. 
This keynote was really impressive when you are interested in technology, the future, changes in society or what comes next.

For those who don't have the time to watch the whole keynote, skip the first 2 hours and start watching at 2:39:20. It's Larry Page's speech at the end of this keynote. 
Not only is it rare for people in his position to open themselves up to unscreened questions, listening to him describe how he sees the company's position in the world and the challenges that they want to address. 

This presentation by Google Chief Larry Page was just brilliant. There are so many quotable statements in there... a visionary.
The overall stance of Googles leadership is remarkable. If only more companies were like that, I do believe the world would be a better place.

A great project by Google for Kampala (Uganda) has the potential to bring major economic change to Africa. 

It's initiatives like this that feed my passion for technology and the internet.

Does Language Influence Culture?

Oh yes, new cognitive research suggests that language profoundly influences the way we see the world. 

"All this new research shows us that the languages we speak not only reflect or express our thoughts, but also shape the very thoughts we wish to express. The structures that exist in our languages profoundly shape how we construct reality, and help make us as smart and sophisticated as we are."
