First read (March 13th 2013)Edit
Online, on my computer at home.
"I find that this wonderful short story elucidates all of those concepts in a much more meaningful way than the technical talks and usual singularity nerd circlejerking."
"Some stories I read, and they are good... but I forget them relatively quickly. Others, like this one, are profound and stay with me for the rest of my life. Before today there was but one such story I could list, but now I have two. Thank you for sharing this. For those interested, the first would be: The Last Question by Isaac Asimov"
I read it a day or two later, on the 13th of March. It was very good, sedate, gentle, beautiful, a simple view of the Singularity, but still magnificent.
