Bilal Hafeez (1:47):

So welcome, Eli, to the podcast, it's great to have you on. I have to say, I wasn't that familiar with your work until you wrote this excellent blog that came out a week or so ago, called Notes on Technology in the 2020s. And I have to say, it's probably one of the best notes I've read on the different technological breakthroughs that we've seen, and how likely they are to be implemented in society in the near term. So, kudos to you for that.

Eli Dourado (2:06):

Well, thank you. Great to be with you, and appreciate the kind words about the post.
