Ray Kurzweil has a great deal to talk about, and we're glad he spent some time talking with Erik to become our new Cool Friend. Discussion centered around Kurzweil's new book, The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology, but took off in many directions. Read the interview here. You should also take a minute or two to visit his website to see all the projects Kurzweil is involved with. They're fascinating!
