IEEE SPECTRUM

  • The Social Era of the Web Starts Now (June 2011). An introduction to IEEE Spectrum’s special report on the rise of the new social web.
  • Ray Kurzweil’s Slippery Futurism (December 2010). The National Medal of Technology recipient has a reputation as a stunningly prescient tech visionary, which is part of why his predictions of a coming Singularity carry so much credibility. But an examination of his track record to date suggests that his prophecies aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.
