Adam Simpson and Casey Rogers of Future Left Podcast join Tom and Zach to talk about progressive futurism. We get a little political in our discussion of technology, the future of work, and automation, but that is our right as free men who have once bench pressed. Say something!
On Episode 25 of our goofball, transhumanism and singularity-centric podcast, I brought up the concept of leapfrogging. Before I get into the reasons why leapfrogging, in light of a potentially fast approaching technological Singularity, is worth talking about, it’s probably a good idea to briefly summarize what leapfrogging is and where the term comes from.
On Episode 24 of this, our Singularity Bros Podcast, we chatted with George Dvorsky about topics as diverse as World of Warcraft addictions and multiplex parenting—topics on the mind of most of the Singularity Bros out there. What stuck with me for days after, however, was not the normal futurist and transhumanist stuff, but strangely it was the idea of a Dyson Sphere.
