and then......the BSOD
seriously though - it won't stop mankind's stupid ways, so yeah - hyper-computing for the fun of it in the future.
For our technology to advance at a rate more than exponentially, we will need to find new or apply neglected renewable options to sustain growth. With finite resources already facing limits with our insatiable need for new technology the populace may face stagnation (still seeing some form of growth but not at the rate predicted) more than likely science, military, and medicine will get first dibs.
It would be nice if this rate of information and discovery would be used for exceptional benevolence (ie: cheaper medicine, advanced materials for building rather than weaponry, space exploration, and environmental conservation)
