Gloating is good. I should do it more often.
But I made no such prediction. What I said many times is that
machine intelligence bootstrap will happen sooner than human
augmentation by implants, because latter have to be high-bandwidth
and bidirectional, and hence invasive. Invasive as today cranial
surgery invasive. Which are under an ethical block.
Oh, and I would love if you'd gloat over that one. Because
then I'd be wrong, and I'd rather be very wrong on that.

As a chemist, I just came. A little. However, I'm still missing
those shoebox-sized 1 kUSD NMR machines I can order online.
P.S. I have a far too long list of those I-wish-sombobody-would-gloat-over-that
