Hofstadter Musings

HERE, an interesting interview (text) with the always intriguing Douglas Hofstadter, cognitive scientist and author of the Pulitzer-prize winning "Godel, Escher, Bach," as well as several later volumes. I especially find his comments about the so-called "singularity" (the super-intelligence point toward which some argue computer technology is inevitably moving) interesting.
Interview is from the American Scientist Magazine website which has interviews with many other thinkers/writers available.
