-- Damien, I didn't get the impression of plagiarism, not offhand, although I know from experience how easy it is to pick up a Damienism without realizing it. (It wasn't until rereading the Spike that I realized you'd invented the "blind painter" metaphor I use to describe human programmers with no codic cortex.) But it was a nice Singularity article, and we need more of them, especially from people reading the Extropian newsgroup; and ideas do tend to express themselves in similar ways.
