    The following is a clip from a SingularityWatch that just cam in my email:

    "For more on Englebart's vision of "Collective IQ":
    http://www.bootstrap.org/vision.htm. Reading this, however, you see the
    difficulty: Collective IQ means so many things to so many people. We need
    to take an interdisciplinary approach to understanding it. One effort in
    that direction is Englebart's "Unfinished Revolution" Colloquium at
    Stanford in 2000 http://www.bootstrap.org/colloquium/transcripts.html
    Unfortunately, the archive is uneven. It's a bit too abstract, top-down
    "this is how things should be" type pronouncements, and not enough "here
    are many examples of good incremental advances." But cyber-pioneer
    Englebart, inventor of the mouse, father of hypertext, is always worth a look."

    Also from the newsletter:
    "SingularityWatch Mission Statement:
    To share news, events, and editorials helpful to:
    1.Understanding our accelerating progression to the singularity,
    2.Investing in its balanced development,
    3.Improving human interdependence and ethics as we approach the transition.
    Reported for the educated nonspecialist audience.

    Understanding Accelerating Change"

    I think his comments are worth discussing.
