Human 2.0: Kurzweil Writes for Lifeboat Foundation

A fantastic report by Ray Kurzweil on the coming transformation of the human species into human 2.0. Whereas biological evolution has taken eons to bring us to our present configuration, technology will speed up the process unimaginably.
In the coming decades, a radical upgrading of our body's physical and mental systems, already underway, will use nanobots to augment and ultimately replace our organs. We already know how to prevent most degenerative disease through nutrition and supplementation; this will be a bridge to the emerging biotechnology revolution, which in turn will be a bridge to the nanotechnology revolution. By 2030, reverse-engineering of the human brain will have been completed and nonbiological intelligence will merge with our biological brains.

This is a vision of our possible, perhaps probably future and is well worth reading.
