Ryan Gosling Singularity

Via Wonkblog:

“At this rate, theoretically, by 2094 every single Tumblr will be Ryan Gosling-based,” declares Ray Kurzweil, whereupon they will inevitably crystallize into a superintelligent post-Gosling avatar that will become a gentle feminist Robot God caring for us all with loving grace. (Actually a tumblr user "TopherChris" said it, and with too much tongue in cheek to fall for futurological nonsense, I cheerfully suspect).

Are they sure it isn't Ryan Reynolds? Well, in any case, I guess
the Robot God will be Canadian. I suppose that's a good thing,
considering the alternatives!
