Two Good TorrentFreak Quotes

Recently, regarding the Post-Scarcity Warriors, I was reading a TorrentFreak article from June 2011 about 3D-printer piracy. Within that article two segments were particularly appealing thus I'm logging two quotations here, which express key aspects of the Singularity regarding fiction becoming fact, the impossible becoming possible:

"As the world is introduced to new technology, things that were previously thought impossible become an everyday occurrence. Telling someone a few hundred years ago that you could deliver a letter to someone on the other side of the world in under a second would result in a rather warm encounter with a stake, yet now with the advent of email its a rather boring event."

"We will all have 3D printers connected to our computers in the not too distant future but when Star Trek-style replicators have already whetted the appetite, man won’t be happy until science-fiction becomes science fact."
