Very interesting and positive ideas for moving ahead.
I can’t help feel, however, that the kinds of thinking and change reflected there will not happen on a wide and deep enough scale, nor with the great speed needed in face of rapidly approaching climate collapse.
In fact, all this worry about energy-guzzling Singularity seems somewhat moot when there won’t be dirty energy to run it. We go nuclear?
That assumes Ito’s perspective is avoiding collapse.
Should we actually be talking about what to change in readiness for and after collapse, that seems more plausible.
But it still seems like a lot of slow-moving intellectualizing and not much action where needed.
