Recently I've found that watching TED talks like this one are vastly more fulfilling than simply watching hilarious free episodes of 30rock or the Office on

Which reminds me of this book I read a couple years ago about technology trends, the future and robots. Ray Kurzweil makes keyboards, cures his own diabetes, and writes about the future. He's cool in my book.

I first heard about him from Our Lady Peace's album Age of Spiritual Machines (which is basically a musical narrative of a Kurzweil book of the same name). Big thanks to my bro for having some kind of prophetic ability to listen to good bands when we were growing up.
