Supposedly when strong AI / molecular nanotechnology / whatever finally gets built. Things should probably get pretty interesting around 2030 if the pace of current developments keep up.

Indeed.

The better-fitting hyperbolic curve predicts a hard takeoff in a couple years or so. Beyond that, the condition of razors may not be comprehensible to normal human minds.

A singularity of razor blades... Perhaps the end of the world is in sight still?

it's kinda a moral crap out to just allow idea to free people from the idea that they should be nice to each other, so I kinda avoid discussing that even though I believe technology will continue to progress. :X
