About this forum
Please keep the humour in good taste (hopefully you can find some good taste humour these days). In January 2013 threads were split up into sub-topics, which explains the unusually high views that some (original) threads have. This forum is "read only" for members until they're well established.

This is brilliant! I laughed out loud multiple times.

Whoever this man of mystery is, he has certainly captured the essence of every techno-utopian/libertarian/silicon valley poseur that I have ever encountered.

Sometimes I wish that someone like Dalrymple could give his own lecture at TED Talks. He could explain to all the wide-eyed optimists that there would actually be very little "progress" between now and the year 2070, and human nature would remain unchanged anyway. And you know what? He wouldn't even need charts and graphs!

I loved his slides that didn't make any sense. Also, the bit about growing potatoes on the sea floor was pretty funny. This has been a long time coming. TED takes itself way too seriously.

Me too!

It's been a while since I've had a belly laugh like that.

Anyway, I'm off to teach Java to some African kids...
