Where have all the Geniuses gone??

We start off bitching about the world’s “geniuses” (or lack thereof) for a bit, to springboard the conversation into Power, the fractal nature of time, The Singularity, & Ray Kurzweil’s claims, the power of structure and culture in shaping our world, the bright sides of the End of the World.

We trace a brief history of how these issue played out through the 20th century, and then wrap up with a bit of tech talk.
