Ray Kurzweil - Promise and Peril of the 21st Century

Abstract:
Technology has always been a double-edged sword, empowering both our creative and our destructive natures. It has brought us longer and healthier lives, freedom from physical and mental drudgery, and many new creative possibilities. Yet it has also introduced new and salient dangers. Stalin's tanks and Hitler's trains used technology. And we still live today with sufficient nuclear weapons - not all of which appear to be well accounted for - to end all mammalian life on the planet.
