I am already preparing for a long and amazing summer at Singularity University (SU). I have my Singularity email set up, signed into our community portal, and know where I'll be living. I will be in a dormitory on the NASA Ames campus and all my sheets, pillows, and cleaning services will be provided. It's not pretty, but they've made it so we have nothing to do but work and study. I will not need to worry about whose turn it is to clean the toilet, thank God!
At SU we will get a fast and furious education in 10 different areas of study. The 10 areas of study are:
Before I arrive, I have get up to speed on all the aforementioned subjects. To do this, we've been given a substantial reading list. I've got two weeks to become a genius. Well, maybe not, but I definitely have a lot of homework.
After the break, I've posted some of the articles, links, and readings from the SU list. Feel free to follow along with me and add to the discussion in the comment section as I write and post about some of the articles over the next couple weeks. Be forewarned this list is LONG, I cut it down, but you still may be scrolling for a while. Enjoy!
