CCK09 -The Singularity

September 28, 2009

Thanks to the participants in this thread in the CCK09 Moodle forum for bringing up the concept of The Singularity. I had not really given this much thought before, but it would appear that there may be something to the idea that we are approaching a somewhat critical mass in terms of our knowledge creation and accumulation and perhaps a singularity is the natural evolution of that.

I do find Dolores’ statement in her response to be very insightful.  “….the singularity is in us, not on the network or the tools” she writes.  I find this to be a very interesting comment, but I am not sure what it means to me just yet.  I am also aware of the dangers of group-think, as Catherine brought to our attention in this post (she had many other thoughts on techno-communism in CCK08).

Hopefully I will be able to write more on this subject after some further research and reflection.
