Nancy Kress's Sleepless trilogy is somewhat of the anti-Kurzweil. We do see a form of singularity happen, in the ability of some humans to exist completely without sleep. Soon though we get a stratified society of people who can't understand each other, and the brainiest of them all decide one day to guide the human race in a way we might not all like.

Heck, we haven't even successfully processed the creation of birth control yet. I wonder if we'll end up like S.M. Stirling's books out of sheer exhaustion from accelerating progress.
