Singularity Readings, Upcoming Events

I'm attending the Iron Chef Sculpture competition, hosted by Maker Faire RI, as well as their DIY workshops next week.

Then, of course, the Maker Faire itself on the 19th.

After that, the Singularity Summit in NY has caught my eye. They have an amazing list of readings to tear through.

Some interesting ones;

10 Intro Publications

Ethical Issues in Advanced Artificial Intelligence
Nick Bostrom
What is Nanotechnology?
Center for Responsible Nanotechnology
Artificial General Intelligence: Now Is the Time
Ben Goertzel
Special Report: The Singularity
IEEE Spectrum
Why the Future Doesn't Need Us
Bill Joy
Why Work Toward the Singularity?
Singularity Institute
The Basic AI Drives
Steve Omohundro
The Conversational Interface
John Smart
The Coming Technological Singularity
Vernor Vinge
AI as a Positive and Negative Factor in Global Risk
Eliezer Yudkowsky

Also; if you aren't on the Brazen Careerist social network, it seems promising! Designed for Generation Y (read; you and me), it focuses on interests as opposed to work experience. I started a singularity group on it, join up to meet people whose interests and work focus on the Singularity.
