Well, my original T-Shirt says "Singularity 2005", but since it's been a
couple of years since that T-Shirt was created, and work hasn't really
started yet, I'd be pretty surprised if the job got done before2006-2007.
2010 is still a good possibility - it's the target date I'd try for if I had
a well-funded Singularity Institute. (Though I'd make it clear that the
project might extend to 2015, 2020, or beyond.)After all, ten years is over
three hundred megaseconds. A lot can happen in three hundred million

Very true. Eliezer, maybe Sasha's company could take a look at your AI seed
project??? Who knows? Just a thought for a friend.

With the imagination you have, perhaps an informal business could be started
with you as the creative force behind a series of t-shirts, caps and
miscellaneous items? This could be the perfect format for you to make some
decent(or even impressive money) and spread direct and indirect
singularitarian memes. Maybe you and Greg's brother-in-law in some sort of
partnership as time goes by?

Anyway, best of luck to you in your desire to come up with a first class
T-shirt. I would like to purchase some if they are ever available
commercially, for my younger brother, bestfriend and myself. See, you
already have a customer! :)
