Quotes

"speciation might well happen, but instead of class, i think it'll be much more driven by culture. you might get a country that decides it wants to bring down its healthcare budget by subsidising an upgrade that makes people healthier. the end result might be that the singaporeans become their own species. or it could be a technological speciation, like mac users versus pc users, which is probably even more horrifying" Sandberg said
...strike or a close encounter with another star could throw the Ringworld out of attractive equilibrium and onto on a cataclysmic collision course. "a ringworld will tend to drift off whenever it gets a chance" Sandberg says
"the fact you can have big arguments about whether [the d-wave] is a quantum computer shows it's early days" Mr Sandberg said
