Singularity

Hyperinvention

Comic script - 8 pages ZIP file
A tale of one lowly janitor and an experimental marrying nanotechnology and artificial intelligence running amok. Short (hopefully funny) and clean. I think the lack of breasts and bombs is what doomed this story when I sent it into the comic companies.

I'm The Last GrandFather

I have been ruminating on the Singularity for some time. Rudy Rucker's PostSingular was a great story about an omniscient network that anyone can tie into at any time. I think that the Singularity is more than just about information. It's about transforming us into supermen. But to transform us into supermen, the current human race is going to have become extinct. If Verner Vinge's math is right, the Singularity will come into swing during my daughter's adult life, maybe after she's started a family.
