Has anyone read his books? To condense his thesis if you follow the various curves for computing systems there's a point in the near future where the computational power of manmade systems will exceed the human brain. Somewhere around that time a qualitative change will occur in the course of human history as a consequence of technology changing human physiology. Kind of optomistic and I suspect a shift that will affect the top 1% of humanity.
