If you take 30 steps linearly you get to thirty but if you take 30 steps exponentially you arrive at 1 Billion. This is exponential growth and this is how all information technology grows.
Thanks to technology life expectancy and IQ have been globally rising while war and poverty are globally declining. As we approach the knee of the curve the exponential nature of technology is starting to really become evident. Some confused individuals refuse to accept the benefits of technology and cling to the "good ol' days" myth. They are fueling a dangerous neo-Luddite movement. We at 30 Steps believe in a transparent soft takeoff to the technological singularity; which will more likely be accomplishable by public understanding of technology, its benefits, and the dangers of its suppression.
