Sometimes, what futurist Ray Kurzweil calls the "ever-increasing rate of technology" is scary. (Who, exactly, wants to live forever? Or grant robots the same rights as humans?) But when singularity-the theory that technology will improve exponentially until it reaches a state of unprecedented progress-quickens the Internet's pace by a hundredfold, I will gladly drink Kurzweil's Kool-Aid. Scientists from the University of Sydney have inadvertently demonstrated this theory by making the Web 60 times faster than current top-notch speeds, and promising to raise that to 100 times in the near future.
