- Technological Convergence - definition via Wikipedia
- OECD - "...Interest and excitement in converging technologies developed in the early 2000s. Particularly visible at this time was the NBIC1 programme, which envisioned that the combination of different disciplines into new research and development (R&D) fields would lead to synergies in the form of technological innovations that would not only shape human lives but also enhance the human body to improve performance."

Ray Kurzweil - Humanity & technological convergence
"..The onset of the 21st century will be an era in which the very nature of what it means to be human will be both enriched and challenged, as our species breaks the shackles of its genetic legacy, and achieves inconceivable heights of intelligence, material progress, and longevity. The paradigm shift rate is now doubling every decade, so the twenty-first century will see 20,000 years of progress at today’s rate. Computation, communication, biological technologies—DNA sequencing, for example—brain scanning, knowledge of the human brain, and human knowledge in general are all accelerating at an ever faster pace, generally doubling price-performance, capacity, and bandwidth every year.

Gen X / Y - A multi-generational workforce
This is one of a series of interviews with scientists working at the convergence of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science. Participants discuss their definition of technological convergence, how this might affect various scientific fields and what obstacles must be addressed to reach convergence’s full potential. In this video, George Whitesides of Harvard University discusses technological convergence.
