Do The Freakin Math

Liberals and conservatives alike frequently rely on limited evidence, personal experience, religious beliefs or gut emotions to determine solutions for complex problems. From immigration to global warming - taxes to terrorism - or health care to free trade - analytical study is rare. Science based policy making isn’t the way of Washington. And the consequences are catastrophic. Change is urgently needed. Just do the freakin’ math.

The Matrix, Terminator or ????

The pace of technological change is unthinkable...as well as the future it will bring. I'd love to be optimistic about it...

But the current path of human history regarding war, poverty, disease, genocide, crime and religion...doesn't give much room for hope.

The newest "Terminator" movie actually provides a glimmer of hope...about the resilience of life over machines. But as Kevin Kelly points out...the web is one machine that hasn't yet failed. It's evolution continues. Ours is questionable.

Any predictions?
