Very nicely written. I wonder if we have reached "Critical Mass" Pun intended but I meant that also in the business sense. Where by we reach a rate in which things expand at a much increased fantastic rate. Are we reaching this critical mass stage in science?
100 years may not be that much of a wait. With the present rate of technological expansion we may just reach a level rather quickly where we may be able to do whats required to achieve it?

type 1 sounds good to me, but he says "the internet will only be used like a telephone." does that mean they'll take away our freedom to browse the web? in turkey they made it illegal to go on youtube. sucks to be them, i have relatives there. besides any government that indulges into too much power strips away from purpose and becomes corrupt.
