Three arguments against the singularity - Charlie's Diary

2011 Jul 1, 10:09"I periodically get email from folks who, having read "Accelerando", assume I am some kind of fire-breathing extropian zealot who believes in the imminence of the singularity, the uploading of the libertarians, and the rapture of the nerds. I find this mildly distressing, and so I think it's time to set the record straight and say what I really think. Short version: Santa Claus doesn't exist."PermalinkCommentsscifi singularity charles-stross future fiction

I'm Married!

2010_05_Dave and Sarah Wedding_Sarah and Dave Married WalkDid I mention that I got married two weeks ago today on May 29th? Its true! Our wedding was a kind of planning singularity -- all of my planning efforts would get sucked into that day and I couldn't make any plans past that date. But the actual wedding itself was lovely and I didn't feel nearly as stressed out or nervous during the wedding as I did trying to plan for it. I've been gathering wedding photos on our wedding website photos page.
