The first wave was tools and agriculture. The second wave was the industiral age. The Third Wave is information. The Fourth Wave will be biotech. The Fifth Wave will be a combination of nanotechnology, memetics, and artificial intelligence, and will change mankind more than the first four waves put together. Beyond that is The Singularity. (the rapture of the nerds?)

Alvin Toffler 3rdWave

Raymond_Kurzweil (KurzweilAI.net) the singularity is near, or farther than he thinks… it could very easily be the case that the things he describes are exponentially harder to tackle than the frist steps we are taking in those directions…

Transhumanism (yeah, whatever…)

So what if it doesnt happens?
