Actually, I did not think that, but wtf is this?
Basically, imagine a bunch of Transhumanists being led by an egomaniacal startup huckster from Russia who loves writing manifestos. And, of course, this guy seriously believes we'll achieve the perfection of humanity without having to deal with messy political, social or economic problems.
It's baffling that anyone over the age of 19 can believe this shit: Hell, we've had civilization and logic for thousands of years, and yet we're still killing each other over whose interpretation of an ancient tribe's war god is correct.

At about 0:50, my bullshit meter was seriously beginning to overheat, and at 1:40, it exploded and I had to stop watching this. Holy crap.

No, our civilization is not like an uncaptained ship.
Your fucking brain is like an uncaptained ship.
Our civilization is like a civilization.

2012: We open a social networking webpage
2013: All the scientists and wealthy investors on our webpage fund massive research projects.
2015: We all have flying cars and robot butlers, no more manual labor.
2020: Avatar becomes non-fiction
What a sterling example of the parasitic non-productive management bullshit that ruining civilization.
"I know how to solve all the worlds problems! I'll just open a website asking people to devote their time, effort and money to solving these problems, and then they'll just do that. Why hasn't anyone thought of this before?"
It also inspires great confidence that the people who'll soon invent human-robot interfaces with "all five senses" have no clue how many senses we actually have.
If these people could even provide a working definition of evolution or nanotechnology, I'd be shocked. It's basically just magic to them.
remember when you had to work hard for your cult, and this goshdarnit internet came and ruin everything

I didn't ask for this.

Ted and whatever TedX is are fast becoming bullshit and pseudo-science platforms. Can anyone apply for a Ted Talk? It sounds like the gatekeepers are about as prepared to deal with hucksters as the patent office is.

These are some pretty big promises. I hope they can deliver.

This starts off like the most awesome Plan 9 From Outer Space reboot imaginable.

This game sounds like it's trying to rip off Anno 2070. Also, notice that they aren't showing any actual gameplay footage in this trailer.

I believe it. I mean, Sark is narrating the damn thing.
