Finally tried the famous baby back ribs at Jasper’s (rated in the top 3 Best in the Country). Not my favorite dish from Jasper’s, but when not taking the rating into consideration, I was not disappointed. Rarely do I eat ribs. Even at BBQs I’ll skip over them and seek out the boneless meats, but on this day I felt compelled to step outside of my usual Seared Salmon & Polenta to try their most famous dish.
There is a perfect amount of meat, with a great infused flavored to be complimented with the AWESOME potato salad, and a side of tangy BBQ sauce. Not the best pairing for a glass of wine, but an amber beer would match it very well.
Best dishes from Jasper’s in my preferred order: Seared Salmon, Bourbon BBQ Pork Tenderloin, **Baby Back Ribs, and then the Grilled Shrimp and Pork Tenderloin Brochette.
★★★: Informative & Interesting
Inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil is the subject of this documentary that follows him on a world speaking tour in which he expounds on his ideas about the merging of man and machine, which he predicts will occur in the not-so-distant future. Here he raises eyebrows with his wildly optimistic views of a technology-enhanced future.
This is a poorly put together documentary predicting an “iRobot” type theme for the future, which will hold your attention regardless of its chaotic editing.
Kurzweil’s points and opinions around the advancing speed of technology seem to be correct, but you have to wonder how long can it continue to accelerate. When it reaches the point of advancing the human perceptive, I feel there will be a change in the rate technology progresses, or a complete evolving of something new. Perhaps Ray Kurzweil is correct in his predictions of the creation of Artificial Intelligence, but at that point in time I think we will have a small speed bump. The domination of A.I. over the world in twenty years doesn’t seem very logical. People have been predicting these sort of events since the 1960's. Maybe Ray's own intelligence and ego have gotten the best of him. Although this is a wonderful jumping off point in understanding the ideas behind technical advancements and their capabilities. The film isn’t potent or concise enough to really give us the full picture of Singularity.
