There was a thread over in the salsa forums asking if you've read any good salsa related books recently. The thread has been hijacked recently with non-salsa related books, and I think it's a good topic (but more appropriate here). (And more importantly, no topics about this came up when I did a search on "Reading" or "Books".) So that being said, Read any good books recently? I'm currently reading, The Age of Spiritual Machines by Ray Kurzweil. Pretty interesting stuff. I was introduced to the book by a friend, since we were talking about all these sci-fi books, films, & shows regarding the end of mankind due to creating machines that are more intelligent (i.e. the Technological Singularity). So far, Kurzweil is taking a more positive outlook at the subject, but I'm only about 40-50 pages in. I wouldn't call it light reading, but I do find it interesting.
