RE: An essay I just wrote on the Singularity.

Actually, a semantic distinction between *problem* and
*yet unsolved task*, should be appropriate.

Tomorrow breakfast is a problem, if I am starving and
have no guaranties, that it will be a breakfast
tomorrow. But I will (probably) have just to buy and to
cook something, so the tomorrow breakfast is just an
unsolved task for me.

After a successful Singularity, we may still have an
enormous number of task to solve, but not problems like
hunger, disease ...

What's the use of having a singularity, if things were
not essentially better after it?
