Ray Kurzweil is nuts

That is all. Our brains are not going to directly interface with the cloud, in 2030 or at any foreseeable time. We certainly won't be able to back up our brains -- although it's pretty hard to know what that would mean.

Suppose there were two or three copies of your neural contents -- your memories, skills, personality and self-consciousness, running on different hardware. Would the extras be you? Don't lose sleep thinking about it, because it is not going to happen.
