Singularity Summit 05-13-06: Big Names, Big Ideas

Have you registered to attend the Singularity Summit yet? Why not? It's free!

Every time I hear about this thing I get more excited. The speaker list is already packed with some of the most important thinkers on the planet where our future as a species is concerned, and the list of VIPs expected to attend (which, alas, I'm not entitled to share) is equally impressive. Trust me on this one: If your geek factor comes anywhere near mine, you're going to meet more than one personal hero at this conference.

This is our Woodstock.

And if you're not a geek, but want to know and have a say about the upcoming end of the world as we know it (and who wouldn't), then you should still definitely go.

And if you just can't make it to Stanford at the appointed hour, take heart: It will be extensively covered by the more future-savvy media, and you will probably be able to find a full podcast or two. Check out the "Coverage of the Summit" section at the bottom right of the Summit website.

Hi Mitchell,
I noticed your blog listed @ vizi.pbwiki.com/TranshumanistBlogs and wanted to let you know about the new transhumanist social/community network at
transhumanists.org. We are trying to develop a community that crosses the broad interest spectrum of transhumanism and facilitate lively discussions from enthusiasts/experts in all relevant fields...science, technology, politics, philosophy, ethics, and so forth. We hope you can join us.

...I am also a stay at home dad with a 2 1/2 yr old. maybe someone should start a social network for us.
