Future Imperative

What if technology were being developed that could enhance your mind or body to extraordinary or even superhuman levels -- and some of these tools were already here? Wouldn't you be curious?

Actually, some are here. But human enhancement is an incredibly broad and compartmentalized field. We’re often unaware of what’s right next door. This site reviews resources and ideas from across the field and makes it easy for readers to find exactly the information they're most interested in.

Name:

The future is coming fast, and it's no longer possible to ignore how rapidly the world is changing. As the old order changes -- or more frequently crumbles altogether -- I offer a perspective on how we can transform ourselves in turn... for the better. Nothing on this site is intended as legal, financial or medical advice. Indeed, much of what I discuss amounts to possibilities rather than certainties, in an ever-changing present and an ever-uncertain future.

Posthumanity in the News -- Soc

*
How do you know that an idea is beginning to enter the wider public consciousness? It's not when you see yet another biotech/human-enhancement article on Reason.Com or a few more news blurbs at Wired or Betterhumans.Com. No, it's when they start discussing it on a public blog on the New York Times website. And when they start discussing books like Radical Evolution at a "book club" on the same site. (Yes, you'll have to register with the New York Times online (which is free) and New York Times Select (which is not, but which has a free, no obligation trial period) to read it.)

Personally, I favor the notion that a well-informed public will make better decisions about these issues, and that education is something to be encouraged. But we'll see what happens.

Possible Use of RFID in Fight Against Bird Flu
There is some thought that RFID technology could be used in the fight against the spread of bird flu, which has already threatened people in Southeast Asia with fears it could become a pandemic.
