this could be very bad news for coast dwellers, and therefore the rest of us as well.
According to scientists, it could have been caused by warmer waters.

HP Enterprise demonstrates next-generation computing prototype as The Machine comes together - ExtremeTech
HP's new architecture, dubbed The Machine, has reached the prototype phase. While the hardware and software platform is still under active development, the company's claims about memory-driven computing (and the performance advantages of its new model) are starting to shape up.

This advice is well put and quite suitable; I would add only two things: Don't get caught up in the myriad deities that default thinking has allowed to flourish throughout history; do your own logical assessment based on evidence, and let that grow naturally. The singularity has nothing to do with bad (but perhaps entertaining) images such as the "Terminator" from popular culture; it is about the maturity of rational thought in relation to the universe, and even if a lot changes, it will not be bad. Secondly I strongly suggest that a mentor as Socrates suggests, for you should be female, since as society matures, the female influence is just now beginning to repair the damage of centuries to the human psyche (I am male btw but just an observer!).

I am sharing this letter to provide easy access to my suggestions and solicit further wisdom and mentorship from the Singularity Weblog community.

Introduction
politically/philosophically i am a "libertarianSocialist";
i believe everyOne should be completely free to take care of everyOne else!

all is chance; everything exists in the biValence of contrasts; there is no light without dark, no white without black, no hot without cold; everything plays off it's opposite. But can there ever be "love" without "hate"?

i am a minimalist by@design; and a 'pig' by nature; the 'war' goes on.......
