Apache Warrior

| September 21, 2017 | 74 Comments

The folks at Gravitas Ventures wanted me to tell you about their movie “Apache Warrior” which will be out in limited release November 3rd and on demand on December 12th;

Not every mission goes according to plan.

Apache Warrior is a feature-length documentary that puts the viewer in the cockpit of an Apache helicopter during one of the most intense missions in aviation history. Telling the story of an elite U.S. Army Aviation Squadron, this film highlights the adaptability, courage and selflessness of Apache pilots and their crews as they launch an attack during the initial surge into Iraq in March, 2003. The mission unfolds in near real time as these heroic soldiers fight to stay alive.

    Technology keeps improving.

    “Here are some of my favorite of Ray Kurzweil’s predictions for the next 25+ years.

    If you are an entrepreneur, you need to be thinking about these. Specifically, how are you going to capitalize on them when they happen? How will they affect your business?

    By the late 2010s, glasses will beam images directly onto the retina. Ten terabytes of computing power (roughly the same as the human brain) will cost about $1,000.

    By the 2020s, most diseases will go away as nanobots become smarter than current medical technology. Normal human eating can be replaced by nanosystems. The Turing test begins to be passable. Self-driving cars begin to take over the roads, and people won’t be allowed to drive on highways.

    By the 2030s, virtual reality will begin to feel 100% real. We will be able to upload our mind/consciousness by the end of the decade.

    By the 2040s, non-biological intelligence will be a billion times more capable than biological intelligence (a.k.a. us). Nanotech foglets will be able to make food out of thin air and create any object in physical world at a whim.

    By 2045, we will multiply our intelligence a billionfold by linking wirelessly from our neocortex to a synthetic neocortex in the cloud.

    I want to make an important point.

    It’s not about the predictions.

    It’s about what the predictions represent.

    Ray’s predictions are a byproduct of his (and my) understanding of the power of Moore’s Law, more specifically Ray’s “Law of Accelerating Returns” and of exponential technologies.

    These technologies follow an exponential growth curve based on the principle that the computing power that enables them doubles every two years.

    As humans, we are biased to think linearly.

    As entrepreneurs, we need to think exponentially.”

    How long before people start whining about “Apache” helicopters being another example of “cultural appropriation” ??

    I wonder if we will start to see an increase in the number of Apache Pilot posers once this film is released?

    There I was, Downtown Bagdadlujah,hovering above the corner of Durka Durka Street and Muhamid Jeehaad Blvd, eatin a ham sandwich, Buuuuuuuck Nekkid!

    Please let this -not- be another “Firebirds”.

    I think I saw this already, like years and years ago… didn’t Nicholas Cage star in it?

    Somebody had some missions which did go according to plan?
