I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code.

For some reason I doubt it will take that long. Also my gut says that there will be some interesting developments soon... maybe in form of quantum computing?

Talk about taking decades to hatch!  I hope you're right on this one.  I've been waiting around forever for major breakthroughs in quantum computing and nanotechnology.

You are the most optimistic death-metal lover I've ever known. Smiley

That could be because I don't listen to death metal Wink

Closes thing to death metal I listen would be Slipknot or Pantera which both are quite far from death metal Smiley

Anyway... my logic is that if you look at the rate computing power is growing now, computers can soon do so much processing for us that all research goes to "warpspeed" compared to what it's now. This results much faster progress than ever before. My gut feeling is that sooner than later computers are the ones who are doing the research/progress for us. But technology will need us to give it an idea or a problem to solve. To make a computer that can generate ideas... well, that's gonna take a little bit longer Smiley
